Tantalus was established in 2004 when Proprietor Eric Savics was presented with the opportunity to acquire one of the Okanagan Valley’s premier vineyard properties. Originally known as Pioneer Vineyards, the site was first planted to table grapes in 1927 by renowned, local horticulturist JW Hughes.
Sustainability has always been important to Tantalus. Its ethos guides how we farm the vineyard, how we make the wine and even how we sell it. While the subject of sustainability can be complex, the links between good land stewardship, the health of our business and by extension, the health of our community, are obvious. Nothing trendy here, just our long-held commitment to making wines of the highest quality in the most responsible way we know how.
