Where are your wines sold? 

We are sell­ing our small batch­es of wine through the wine club online or by vis­it­ing us at the win­ery. (also still under devel­op­ment, will be ready Nov. 2018)

Why did you choose Sum­mer­land? 

We have incred­i­ble vine­yards on very spe­cial soils with some of the only lime­stone in the val­ley. We are excit­ed about Sum­mer­lan­di­an ter­rior because of the poten­tial to make real­ly top-notch pinot noir. We also love the peo­ple and the com­mu­ni­ty of Sum­mer­land who are very sup­port­ive of local busi­ness­es.

Favourite thing to do in Sum­mer­land away from the win­ery? 

Go to the farm­ers mar­ket or hike any of the amaz­ing trails.

We are so lucky, the local farms spoil us with incred­i­ble pro­duce, there are two local cof­fee roast­ers, a maple syrup pro­duc­er, a local butch­er and the best bak­ery in the Okana­gan to name a few. You can eat and drink local­ly all year round.
