Farming our land with nature’s best interest in mind is what motivates us. We began organic farming in 2011 and are committed to making pure wines, free from additions or manipulation.
To push us even further, this Spring, OCP joined International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA). OCP is the first Canadian winery to join this prestigious group of global wine leaders. IWCA is open to any winery from any country and employs a three-tiered membership system that allows for a diverse group of wineries to join. Okanagan Crush Pad has been accepted as an applicant member, having committed to an ISO-14064 audited baseline greenhouse gas inventory. The winery now has one year to meet IWCA membership requirements and become a silver or gold-level member. We will be using solar energy, reducing the weight of our packaging and planting crops that provide bio-diversity at Garnet Valley Ranch.
We encourage other local wineries to join us on our journey.
