Thank you to John Schreiner for our feature article on the birth and growth of Lightning Rock Winery.
"Purchased in 2016, Elysia Vineyard is a mature vineyard with 3 ½ acres of Pinot Noir, one acre of Viognier and half an acre of Syrah. The winery – for the time being a beautifully renovated log home – sits at the top of a steep eastern-facing slope with an exceptional view over Okanagan Lake."
Lovely catch up with Kurtis Kolt at Chambar recently, where we tasted through a handful of 2017s and some yet-to-be-released 2018s as well. We appreciate the sweet review in The Strait!
'Dubbed Lightning Rock, the duo’s new project consists of three Summerland vineyards purchased in partnership with Kubek’s father, with a capability of producing 2,500 cases annually. They’re farming all three organically; the Elysia vineyard was initially planted in 2006, the Canyon View vineyard in 2003, and the St. Katharina vineyard in 1968.
