Our Dirt

The Secret's in the soil

Our roots run deep in this valley and that means we know this place like the back of our hands. Experience has taught us that you can’t make great wine without good dirt and hard work. We farm organically here. It’s our way of taking good care of this place we call home. It’s not always easy, but it produces honest, quality wines and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Golden Mile and Black Sage Bench is home to just the right mix of heat and heart in our neck of the woods.

"Respecting the land and farming organically is our way of ensuring we will be successful here for decades to come. This kind of farming also produces outstanding fruit."

Barclay Robinson



Home to a gravel-rich foundation and free-draining dirt we irrigate on demand, the vines on the Golden Mile get a good cooling off period when the sun dips below the Kobau Mountain range in the late afternoon. This drop in temperature allows grapes to retain natural acidity, giving our wines a bright, fresh taste year after year.

On the east-facing slope, tucked against Mount Kobau, sits our Home Vineyard. On the south-facing slope of the Golden Mile sits Road 7 Vineyard.


On the Black Sage bench, you’ll find rattlesnakes, arid desert air, and a sun that feels bigger and brighter than anywhere else in the valley. Thousands of years of glacial outwash left behind soil rich with deposits of minerals. A jackpot for any grapegrower. This is the home to Canada’s sole pocket desert, and there’s no other place like it.
