VINEYARD
Secrest Mountain Vineyard is a 50-acre site, home to a 38-acre (15ha) vineyard situation on a flat south-west facing bench in a high mountain setting, 487 meters (1,600ft) above sea level. This cool site has flat alluvial soils studded with coarse gravel and sandy loam with limestone layers. The vineyard was planted in 2000 with Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir. Since 2010, it has been farmed under the direction of Okanagan Crush Pad and a conversion to organic farming practices was started in 2014. In 2018 when Brad and Dave Wise decided to retire, the winery purchased the property from the family and will carry on with the work that the Wise family has done for the past 18 years.

WINEMAKER
Matt Dumayne

WINEMAKING
Gamay Grapes from our organically farmed high elevation Secrest Mountain Vineyard were gently destemmed with a portion left whole cluster for carbonic complexity. Fermented in a combination of open top and concrete fermenters before aging for 8 months in large Nico Velo concrete tanks.

WINE PROFILE
Bright fruits with chocolate notes lead to a complex wine with lush red fruit and bright acidity framed by gentle tannins.
