CURTIS KROUZEL & SHERI-LEE TURNER-KROUZEL
Curtis is a first generation Canadian who was born in Winnipeg to Czech and Slovak parents with a scarce blue bloodline to some great Austrian winemaking families. Curtis was raised in Edmonton before coming to Calgary in 1997 and starting an oil and gas design engineering company, similar but very different to building a vineyard.
Viticulturally, the stunning 61 acre property boasts more ‘Grand Cru’ vineyard qualities found in one place than many of the top vineyards in the world. Internationally, the world is waking up to the growing number of award winning wines coming from this place and the development honors the praise. Everything you see, feel, and taste is focused on the wine and the special place it comes from. The name '50th Parallel' was chosen to represent a unique and real physical location, a meeting place that people will understand the minute they see the property.
