Following a career in the investment business and raising two young girls, Sydney and Kamryn, Janice and I decided to completely change directions and get into the wine business. We set out to establish ourselves as one of BC’s top wineries focusing on small premium Chardonnay and later Pinot Noir. As in business and my business models the plan was to surround myself with the best people I could in each area. We enlisted James Cluer and Rhys Pender to build our business plan. We hired Pierre Levesque to look after the vineyard and our final piece of the puzzle was to hire Chris Carson who had just returned to Canada after honing his skills and education in Central Otago. I now spend my days actively in sales, administration, tastings, events, viticulture, winemaking (cleaning tanks), landscaping and wherever else the experts will let me. Our tasting room was completed in 2010 and the tasting room staff and I look forward to seeing you at the winery.
My favorite vineyard in Canada!
