Our Collectable series focuses on wines that reflect the terroir in both their structure and flavour. We are fortunate to have a number of vineyards throughout the Okanagan & Similkameen Valleys, but also to have ongoing relationships with growers in a number of additional sites. This has allowed us  to expand our single vineyard series with more appellations and sub-appellations. Thus giving you the opportunity to taste through our beautiful valleys.

As wine club members, you are the first to be offered the pick of the Collectable series. You will find these wines available in your club section.
