The 2014 vintage produced a lavish crop of remarkable quality. Our vineyard, which is situated above Skaha Lake on a westerly slope, is an optimal setting for fine wine production. Above average temperatures throughout the spring and summer months, coupled with cool nights, allowed the grapes to flourish throughout the growing season. Long sunny days provided ample opportunity for increased photosynthesis and Brix accumulation. Harvest in the Okanagan began a little early due to a beautiful warm fall, which has resulted in magnificent flavors and strong tannic structures in our wines.
