Intrigue is "something" about wine that can make us think about the vintage year, the vineyard, the soil and the people who made it. All of these facets combine to make wine complex and intriguing year after year. We hope our wines intrigue you.
Jackson-Triggs Okanagan sources grapes from some of the most beautiful vineyards found in British Columbia. These vineyards get plenty of sunlight thanks to the southwesterly exposure they enjoy along the striking mountain slopes stretching above Osoyoos Lake. High heat during the day is balanced by the nighttime cooling effect of the lake, providing optimum conditions for vine growth and grape ripening.
JoieFarm Winery was founded in 2004 and is located on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the central Okanagan Valley. Beginning from a tiny farm cooking school and guesthouse in the summer of 2003, to releasing our first small 800 case production in 2004, the winery grew to its now 15,000 case production by 2014. Joie (zh-wah) – means “joy” in French, expressing the pleasure and richness that good food and wine bring to life. JoieFarm is interested exclusively in the grape varieties of Alsace and Burgundy which excel in the cool-climate, desert landscape of the Okanagan Valley. Our naturally balanced wines have defined themselves by their freshness and intensity of fruit. We have been a leader in an emerging food and wine culture on the West Coast of Canada and it is our goal to promote and further define the harmony between food and wine in the Okanagan, as well as making sure the wines of the Okanagan Valley help bring to maturity West Coast cuisine, each defining the other, as they evolve. JoieFarm actively promotes the potential of aromatic white wines, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as being the signature of our cool-climate winemaking region. We invite you to taste through our portfolio of award-winning wines in our new Tasting Room and savour wood-fired farm-to-table snacks in our licensed Picnic Area beneath the shaded orchard of Heritage Pear trees.
This organic winery in beautiful West Kelowna has remained true to its rustic roots producing many internationally award winning wines at affordable prices. The family run winery is expanding its reach with new varietals and exceptional organic wines.
Co-owners, Tim Watts and Bob Ferguson, first purchased land in Naramata in 1986 and commenced planting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in the Spring of 1987. Our first commercial harvest came from those grapes in 1992. Now entering our 24th vintage we have maintained a “hands on” approach to all the aspects of our family farm winery operations. While several of our vineyards are scattered about Naramata, we also farm a 14 acre block in Cawston, planted to Zinfandel, Syrah and Viognier under the name Great Northern Vineyards. We invite you to come by our tasting room and enjoy the wines made on the Naramata Bench for yourself.
