Okanagan Crush Pad opened in 2011 to provide a home-base for Christine and Steve’s original wine label Haywire and to serve as a custom crush facility. Today the winery makes its own wines exclusively under the labels Haywire, Narrative, Free Form, and Bizou + Yukon, in addition to creating custom label projects for private retail accounts.
The Okanagan Crush Pad winery is state-of-the-art. It features long banks of concrete tanks, clay amphorae, and large format neutral oak casks. The guest center is built into the heart of the facility, offering visitors a rare glance into the art of winemaking.
When open, the tasting lounge offers a place to sample and buy wines that reflect the region’s unique high mountain, northern desert setting.
