In 2006 Bob Johnson & Petra Flaa were drawn by a parcel of land for sale in Creston, their great love of wine made it impossible not to seize the opportunity to start their own winery in the unique micro-climate that the Creston Valley offers. Thus the Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery was born.

Bob & Petra have created an amazing winery on a beautiful property. In 2021 they decided to take a step back and sold the winery to their son Wes and his fiancé Myran
After 2 years of calculus and arts studies at University of Edmonton Wes’s interest took a turn towards winemaking when his parents Bob & Petra were setting up the Bailie-Grohman Winery in Creston. After working a harvest together with a kiwi winemaker, Wes decided to travel to New Zealand to complete his oenology degree at EIT in Hawkes Bay.

He returned home in 2014 to join his family winery in Creston and took over as winemaker in 2016.

“I’m proud to be part of the adventure that is putting Baillie-Grohman, Creston, and the Kootenays on the world wine map.”

Wes is passionate about making expressive, elegant, handcrafted wines and is ready to make his mark in the BC wine industry.
