For 21 years the Mavetys supplied premium grapes to commercial wineries when finally the allure of producing quality wines inspired them to craft their own label in 1991.
In that time, they had championed new grape varieties in the region, honed their viticulture skills and developed their wine making techniques. Today, on their 31-hectare estate, they make limited quantities of complex wines from noble varietals including Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay -- the same varietals found in the Champagne, Burgundy and Alsace regions of France. In the vineyard, methods favor low crop yields to concentrate and intensify flavours. While using modern equipment in the winery, wine making is respectful of traditional methods. (View Our Wines)
The British Columbia wine industry was just beginning to flourish about the time of Blue Mountain's first vintage in 1991. With this first release, the calibre of wine making met with immediate praise and set a new benchmark for premium wines. About the same time, the next generation of Mavetys was becoming active in the family business, graduating from playing in the vineyards to aiding with cultivation and harvest. Today the second generation, Matt and Christie have joined Ian and Jane in the family operation.
Exceptional wines will always be the pursuit of Blue Mountain and the Mavety family which is poised to evolve its collective talents for generations to come.
Distribution: Winery, shipment to private buyers in case lots, and in selected resta-urants and private wine stores
