The Rust Family is devastated to announce the passing of our beloved friend and general manager, Kane Morgan.
Kane was taken from this world suddenly on Friday, December 8th in a vehicle incident on his way home from the winery.
He was Rust Wine Co. employee number one, having been involved in the construction of the winery from the ground up. He created one of the most remarkable and hospitable environments in the entire Canadian wine industry, leaving an indelible professional and personal legacy.
In 2021, Kane and his family began the development of their family farm in Summerland, British Columbia. This included the planting of what Kane would call Revelation Vineyard, a project which encompassed not only the family’s wine growing efforts, but the holistic operation of the farm, largely informed by Kane’s extensive philosophical writings and overall outlook on existence.
Anyone who had the privilege of knowing him would have experienced his unbounded hospitality, sincerity, and humour. They would have understood immediately that he was not a common man. Kane was a truly exceptional person in every facet of his life, from his superb intellect and way with words, to his dedication to his family both immediate and extended, to his voracious commitment to living a truly full and remarkable life that touched everyone around him in a deep and meaningful way.
Kane leaves behind his wife, Jaki, and their two boys, Cassius and Walker.
It is our familial duty at this time to support Kane’s family and work to carry on his legacy.
Anyone who has been impacted by Kane in even the smallest way is invited to offer their condolences.
We will be collecting donations for The Morgan family
through our sister winery Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery.
