In 2004, Jinny Lee and John Glavina purchased farmland on the sandy benches below Giant’s Head Mountain in Summerland, BC.
In 2006, Jinny planted 4 acres of Pinot Noir, Merlot, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. The vines are self-rooted and sourced from select Okanagan vineyards.
Their passion for farming and wine making pushed them to expand their knowledge, where they both immersed themselves into viticulture and oenology to make small lots of wine.
Since it is a family estate, they have full control over the practices exercised in both the vineyard and winery. Each grape is hand picked at the peak of ripeness, and processed the same day. John has focused on the art of wine making, while Jinny manages the vineyard. In combination, their attention to detail, passion for wine, and hard-work has been the driving force behind their fine wines.
