Can you think of a more perfect place to make small batch wines than a small barn nestled in the hills of West Kelowna?! The vineyard, tucked high in the hills and at the base of the McDougall Rim Trail, is where James grew up and he always knew there was something special about this place.
"The cool climate, limited access to water, and gravel-like soil conspires to stress the vines in all the right ways. It helps that the vineyard is also perfectly sloped and south facing." — James Schlosser, Winemaker
Something else we love about the place is that it's quiet at the top of Bartley Road and there is a sense of calm in feeling that breeze sweep down the mountain side. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 620 meters and that kind of high altitude makes this little spot prime grape-growing country. Just the right balance of hot summer days, cool nights and all kinds of love.
HEADS UP! We will be opening our farmgates for the first time in 10 years this coming May and we hope that you'll join us.
