Tastings For Friday Jan 13th

Saturday Jan 14th

3 – 6pm

Inniskillin Okanagan Estate Winery

Friday, January 13th and Saturday,  January 14th 3 – 6pm

In 1994, Inniskillin established an estate winery in the rich terroir of the Southern tip of the Okanagan Valley Wine Region in British Columbia. During their travels, Donald Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser had been actively promoting their Niagara Wines in the Western Canada market as well as watching the vineyard and winery developments in the Okanagan. They both had a strong desire to give Inniskillin a presence in the Okanagan and Kaiser was excited about the prospects of making wines there that would reflect its unique terroir. Commenced as a partnership between Inniskillin and the Inkameep indigenous peoples (Okanaqueen Tribe), the launch of Inniskillin Okanagan coincided with the 20th anniversary of Inniskillin’s first grape crush. Originally overseeing the winemaking from Niagara between trips to the Okanagan, Kaiser left the winemaking tasks to the capable Sandor Mayer in 1996 with the purchase of the current home of Inniskillin Okanagan Vineyards. Mayer was a natural as he developed the Dark Horse Estate Vineyard, combining his vineyard knowledge with his winemaking skills.
