Okanagan Crush Pad is committed to making wines that are pure Okanagan. Wines that celebrate the distinctive beauty and exceptional micro-climates and geology of our vineyards. The Summerland winery, owned by Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie, is located on the 10-acre Switchback Vineyard site overlooking Lake Okanagan. In addition to our own flagship wine, Haywire, Okanagan Crush Pad crafts super-premium wines for a number of other BC wineries. As the first purpose-built custom wine-making facility in the Okanagan, Okanagan Crush Pad is taking the valuable knowledge and advice of our international wine consultants and using it to help other BC wineries achieve wine-making excellence.
