In the fall of 2002 we purchased a beautiful 5 acre farm on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley and we named it “Joie”. Joie has been a constantly evolving concept that began as a guesthouse and critically acclaimed cooking school, located outdoors, formerly in our orchard. In 2007 the orchard was planted over to grape vines and a new winery building was built on the property. The story and of the cooking school and guesthouse have been captured in Heidi's award winning book Menus from an Orchard Table (Whitecap, 2007). With the addition of our own estate grown fruit in 2009, we have changed our name to JoieFarm to reflect our deeper connection to the place we call home. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • This is a topic on which I have strong feelings. I have had wines that were ... size decanter on a Verite La Joie doesn't cut it  - the wine still seems brooding and dense. But give it another few hours and the wine seems much nuanced. Yet I wouldn't decant an old Bordeaux or Burgundy for 9 hours. Look, if I'm going to drink a true premium win... Read More

  • Yes, "value" is a personal decision. My point is that I haven't ... Les Pavots or the Verite La Joie. Not all higher stature bottles are going to taste a lot better, but surely some of them have a real quality advantage. As a consumer I'm basically ok with diminishing quality returns as price increases. That's customary in all product categori... Read More

  • I'm about to poke the bear, I suspect, but something has been bothering me ... Les Pavots or 2002 Verite La Joie? Both are terrific wines in the 95+ range. Neither costs over $300. I could get a 1999 Shafer Hillside Select (well cellared) on Monday for $300 or perhaps a 2007 O'Shaughnessy for much less than that. Now compare these prices to a ... Read More

  • Joie Farm a Noble Blend 2012


    Being rudely interrupted by a power outage and tasting largely in the darkness, my nose detected a lot of sweet pear and delicious apple with perhaps some lychee nut ... more a sense of preserve than freshly picked fruit. On the palate, the wine is thick, viscous and slightly cloying (off-dry) but still balanced. Very tropical with the mouth-f... Read More

  • Joie Farm a Delicate Balance IV Riesling 2011


    This Riesling from Joie Farm has a mixed provenance being a blend of grapes from various Kelowna area vineyards of repute. The result is quite astounding - there is a beautiful dandelion wine colour with sweet apple on the nose and just a hint of pie spice. Bracing acdidty mid-palate is balanced by a soft douce finish. This is a very fine win... Read More

  • Maison Bleue Marsanne Petite Joie Yakima Valley Boushey Vineyard 2010


    This was a really interesting wine, very floral. Wasn't sure after the first taste, but gradually grew on us. Went really well with seafood - had this @ Willows Inn on Lummi Island 6/12 Read More

  • The sun is bright and the grass lush and green. The white van rounds a turn as ... ... bottlings (Le Desir, La Joie and La Muse), you could really get a sense of both the different growing seasons of each vintage and just how the wines have begun to age.
