Okanagan Valley Wineries - okanagan falls
On a cool spring morning in 1929, a small crew from Okanagan Falls set off to a deserted mining camp some 16 miles away from home. Their mission: to dismantle an old wooden church and bring it back to Okanagan Falls. The plan called for a controlled blast of four dynamite sticks inside the church in order to "loosen the nails." Odd as it may seem, the explosion spared the wood from damage during dismantling. Save for losing the steeple, the plan succeeded. Now, the 108+ year old wooden church stands proudly in its second home of Okanagan Falls. In naming our VQA wines "Blasted Church," we celebrate the ingenuity of this initiative and honour these pioneers for their vision, steadfastness and craftsmanship. Perched high on a rolling hillside that cascades into Skaha Lake, this is undoubtedly one of the most majestic vineyards in the valley. Now into its second decade of grape production our 42 acre vineyard has long been a choice purveyor of premium quality grapes to many of British Columbiaâ€™s leading wineries. Thirteen varietals make their home hereâ€¦ from distinctive Chardonnay to spicy GewÃ¼rztraminer; from the cool climate Lemberger to the heat seeking Cabernet Sauvignon. All of our estate harvest is dedicated to the production of fine Blasted Church wines. This is important for us as we believe that wines of exceptional character truly begin in the vineyard.
Located in BC’s South Okanagan, Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars is distinctive among Canadian wineries in that all its wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown on the estate’s vineyards. To the Mavety family, "estate" means more than the piece of land; it extends to the practice of both viticulture and wine making by the same owner-operators. Current owners Ian, Jane, Matt, and Christie Mavety continue to work to realize the potential of the region, utilizing sustainable farming methods and winemaking practices. Blue Mountain produces complex, age-worthy varietal wines that are consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual growing season. In the burgeoning wine industry of the Okanagan Valley, Blue Mountain can make the rare claim of over 40 years of continuous grape production by one family.
