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

  • 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
