We are in love with the Similkameen Valley. The diverse terroir within the steep mountain walls range from rich sandy loam soils on top of endless gravel to blistering hot sites full of angular granite rocks. This diversity makes for interesting wines that tell a story of where they are born. We invite you into our exploration of our appellation and we hope you enjoy our wines.
We purchased our 6 acre vineyard underneath Orofino mountain on a beautiful autumn day in 2001. The sun was warm, the air was clean and the ripe grapes hanging on the old vines was enough to lure us away from our life on the prairies. It was the start of a journey full of hard work, careful management, and a vision of something romantic and worthwhile. In 2005 we opened our Similkameen winery with a tiny amount of wine for sale. We have grown quite a bit over the past decade but our commitment to our portfolio of wines remains the same. We focus on making wines of place. Wines that could not be made anywhere else in the world. Wines worth collecting. This journey continues and has led us to the creation of our Collectors Club, featuring award-winning wines from our Similkameen winery. Exclusive member wines, great benefits, and opportunities to be a part of Orofino happenings are available to members. Join us in celebrating BC wines![ Learn More ]
