Wines of Place


Honouring the character of our vineyard

Our Terroir


Each of our 11 vineyards was selected for its distinct terroir with a focus on creating a portfolio of wines that reflect the diversity of microclimates in the South Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. We assess soil type, climate, aspect, and geography of each site. Just as important is the alignment in philosophy among growers – we are equally devoted to growing ultra-premium wines.  We are located in a semi-arid climate at the Northern tip of the Great Basin Desert. The valley lies in a rainshadow, between the Coastal and Monashee mountain ranges, resulting low annual rainfall and more than 2000 hours of sunlight per year. Our desert-like climate results in hot summer temperatures (daytime temperatures of 30-40 degrees Celsius in July and August). In late June, daybreak is as early as 5 am and nightfall as late as 10:30 pm. This Light intensity, due to our northern latitude, provides optimal conditions for grapes to ripen and develop flavour.  The lake and consistent winds help to moderate the hot summer daytime temperatures in the vineyard and provides disease resistance.
