Welcome to Okanagan Crush Pad Winery

…where we craft wines that are celebrated as the new Okanagan.

Okana­gan Crush Pad is committed to making wines that are pure Okanagan and celebrate the distinctive beauty and exceptional growing conditions 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 makes wines for people who are seeking to start their own winery. As the first purpose built custom crush facility in the Okanagan, Okanagan Crush Pad’s aim is to set our clients on the right path by providing expertise at all stages of the wine cycle – from vineyard to market.

Okanagan Crush Pad is the most forward-looking of Summerland wineries. Home of Haywire and Narrative, our house style focuses on crisp, dry and un-oaked white wines and full-flavour red wines. We are open for Okanagan wine tasting through the summer season, from June 1 to September 15. So, come and relax on our picturesque patio with a bottle fresh from our fridge! Out of the main season we still more than happy to welcome visitors to our winery, but please telephone us before you come to taste so that we can be sure you’re properly looked after. We also enjoy participating in many local events with our Bottleneck Drive winery partners, such as Light Up the Vines and Heard it Through the Grapevine. Do not leave this Summerland winery out of your Okanagan visit!
