Our vineyards are situated at the northern most tip of Naramata, abutting the Kettle Valley Railway, and surround the winery on all sides. The Syrah vineyard was the first to be planted in Canada and consists of 17 rows planted on granite in the north eastern portion of the vineyard. All of our vineyards are west and south facing and range from 1400-1500 feet in elevation. The vineyard is also own rooted/un-grafted.
We spend a huge amount of our time and resources farming our vineyards. The majority of our vineyard work is done by hand with minimal tractor use. We pick by hand into 10L baskets to ensure the integrity of every bunch. Our yields are very low for Okanagan and international standards. We are very close to being dry farmed (without irrigation).
