Pursuing a passion can be daunting, particularly when it requires balancing established careers in the investment business with an overblown love of wine by launching a winery, regardless of the financial wisdom of this decision. As David often says, "This winery is our vow of poverty."

But if life was all about being sensible, then great things in this world, such as fabulous wine, just wouldn't come to be.

After numerous research sojourns to vineyards and wineries of Europe and the United States, we decided that BC's Okanagan Valley, and particularly the Naramata Bench, offered the very best locations for the production of ultra premium wines. Together, we purchased the vineyard property on Naramata Road in 2003 and have subsequently planted additional vines in Spring 2004 and built a gravity flow winery in 2005.

David started as a true 'garagiste' winemaker in 2001 making two vintages of small batch, hand-crafted wines with fruit sourced from some of the best vineyards in Washington State. Augmented with various courses and workshops from UC Davis in California, David has apprenticed under some of the best wine-makers in the Okanagan Valley and is now leading our winery team. In 2006, David was named one of BC's top winemakers and his wine-making prowess is consistently resulting in award winning wines.

For Cynthia, the transition from being an "MBA type, business consultant" to becoming a "vineyard manager" is a truly welcomed change. Viticulture science is not only intellectually stimulating, but the satisfaction of applying all of these learnings to the vineyard is highly gratifying.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
