Vineyard Team

John Bayley is a lover of all things wine and vine. He started his career with one of Vancouver’s specialty wine retailers where he developed his palate and passion for wine while also obtaining his Sommelier Diploma. He has travelled the world working with various wineries and vineyards in places such as Oregon, Burgundy, New Zealand - where he studied Oenology and Viticulture at Lincoln University, and of course British Columbia. He is now committed to working with the soils of the Okanagan and to helping grow grapes that are a true expression of the land.

Inventive, quirky, and a creative force in the Canadian wine industry: this is Blasted Church Vineyards […] one of Canada’s most celebrated wineries.
