Our vineyard strategy is an acknowledgement of the Old World with a gust of New World History has demonstrated that the best wines ultimately come from the best vineyard sites. This is "terroir." Fortunately for us (and you), the Okanagan Valley happens to be one of the best wine regions with its unique climate and variety of latitudes and soils. There is a perceptible difference in temperature and greenery, from the lushness of the north to the sage ridden desert in the South. According to WineBC, the area between Oliver and Osoyoos is the northernmost tip of the northernmost desert in the world; the Sonora Desert. Summers are generally very hot with July and August being warmer than Napa Valley, but the evenings are markedly cooler. Osoyoos has 1450 growing degree days and 8 inches of average annual rainfall (WineBC.com). Low rainfall, high heat units and a dry environment allow us to farm in a sustainable manner with all the respect the land deserves. Along with our sister winery Lastella we have 50 acres scattered through the South Okanagan in small parcels from 8.5 acres to 12 acres. We also contract grapes from quality minded growers who have certified organic vineyards or grow sustainably.

  • With springtime upon us, wine enthusiasts around the world are looking to squeeze a French vineyard into their European holiday. “Is it possible to catch the spirit of Bordeaux in a couple of days?” With careful planning the answer’s “yes”.   I accompanied twelve CEO’s on a corporate two day ‘jolly’, sorry ‘educational visit’ to the vineyards of...

  • Forgive me if this seems like spam.  It's the only opportunity to buy and experience some good BC wine from the comfort of your own home in the USA.   Greg T actually told me about it and I was surprised I was unaware.  He bought a couple and I think he's pleased thus far.  Anyway, I think the guy who runs the program is in California and he imp...

  • OT, the Cassini and Le Vieux Pin should be decanted (obviously you aren't going to have twenty crystal decanters, but if we can open them, pour them out and put them back in the bottle an hour ahead, that would do them some justice.  Hopefully, Richard, Greg and I will be there early afternoon.  What time SHOULD we be there?  I'd be happy to hel...
