ABOUT THE VINEYARDS.

 

We are the lucky stewards of three unique pinot noir producing vineyards in Summerland, BC. Each of them express very distinct terroir through the wines, despite being located mere kilometers apart.

 

Elysia Vineyard - Planted in 2006, this vineyard overlooks Okanagan lake to the east, primarily getting the early and mid day sun. Between the very steep slope and a mix of limestone and decomposed granite soil, this is an ideal place for vines to thrive. Here we have Pinot Noir, Viognier and Syrah. We are able to make a variety of delicious wines. With panoramic views from Peachland to Penticton it is a truly amazing place to work and live.

 

Canyonview Vineyard - Planted in 2003 on the precipice of the Trout Creek Canyon, this vineyard has been immaculately cared for by Garth Purdy from day one, and he continues to do so. This south facing vineyard has sandy soil that is dotted with large granite stones, producing spectacular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from two large terraces.

 

St. Katharinas Vineyard - Planted in 1968 this was one of the first vineyards planted with Pinot Noir in Summerland and the Valley. Located on a south-east facing terraced slope, this vineyard lay untended for over 7 years. Through a minimal pruning and lots of love we are bringing it back into production. This wild place only receives 2 deep watering’s a year and the plants resemble small trees who have come into their own natural balance. Truly a one of a kind.
