Elephant Island Orchard Wines

Genius or madness? Given the trajectory of their post university careers, Miranda + Del Halladay would argue their pursuit of original thinking requires a strong dose of both. Launching Elephant Island Orchard Wines cracked the seal on unconventional winemaking style in BC. Fans and critics alike have their opinion on which camp Elephant Island should be categorized. Eleven vintages later enter stage left: Elephant Island Too  - a new brand launched by Del + Miranda. Crafted exclusively from grapes they planted on their home property in 2006 and an old Naramata Bench vineyard acquired in 2013, Elephant Island Too morphed from a desire after 10 years in the BC wine industry to keep inspired and challenged . . . and maybe just a bit from the competitive nature of the two to silence the audience that says they don’t make ‘real’ wine.
