Our Approach

Our aim is to produce distinct, terroir-focused super-premium wines from the Okanagan Valley and to provide a range of services to aid in the development, production, marketing, and sale of proprietary wines.

The Crush Pad

We have created a high-end 35,000 case, small lot custom winemaking facility with the resources and expertise to take product from field to market – including branding, marketing, communications and distribution and sales. We welcome clients, be they vineyard owners or other wineries who wish to establish their own wine brand or to use our equipment to make an exclusive new wine.

The 7,750 square foot Okanagan Crush Pad Winery is located on a 10-acre property in Summerland, BC, known as Switchback Vineyard. The winery is located at the north-west corner of the property and is built partially underground. The facility is only open to the public seasonally, and is designed as a co-working space for winemakers to work side by side to share ideas and to collaborate. The design aesthetic ‘less is more’ is expressed in the state-of-the-art wine cellar with exceptional wine as the outcome. The look is clean, crisp, and modern.
