Le Vieux Pin named after the majestic old pine tree on the northwest corner of our vineyard is situated on the East Bench of Oliver, in the South Okanagan Valley of beautiful British Columbia. The winery takes its design cues from both an old French barn and an old French railway station. Le Vieux Pin opened its doors in 2006 with its first vintage of 2005. This included Vaila Pinot Noir Rose, Auroré Sauvignon Blanc, Belle Pinot Noir, Apogée Merlot and Époque Merlot.

We make our wines in the French tradition; but are open-minded about the use of the latest in equipment and technique. We embarked on this adventure to make the wines we dream of making.

Our vineyard strategy is an acknowledgement of the Old World with a gust of New World History has demonstrated that the best wines ultimately come from the best vineyard sites. This is "terroir." Fortunately for us (and you), the Okanagan Valley happens to be one of the best wine regions with its unique climate and variety of latitudes and soils. There is a perceptible difference in temperature and greenery, from the lushness of the north to the sage ridden desert in the South. According to WineBC, the area between Oliver and Osoyoos is the northernmost tip of the northernmost desert in the world; the Sonora Desert. Summers are generally very hot with July and August being warmer than Napa Valley, but the evenings are markedly cooler. Osoyoos has 1450 growing degree days and 8 inches of average annual rainfall (WineBC.com). Low rainfall, high heat units and a dry environment allow us to farm in a sustainable manner with all the respect the land deserves.

Our focus is to make wine representative of its terroir. Low-input viticulture is the method we use to get there. Dry farming, minimal fertilizer addition, high-density plantings and extremely low yield will allow vines to show us who they really are deep down to the roots. We have very distinct soil composition between our vineyards from very sandy to high gravel content, to heavy clay with loam that results in very unique and distinctive wines. We employ a blend of organic and biodynamic practices which we call 'non-interventionism'. Along with our sister winery Lastella we have 50 acres scattered through the South Okanagan in small parcels from 8.5 acres to 12 acres. We also contract grapes from quality minded growers who have certified organic vineyards or grow sustainably.
