Scorched Earth Vineyard and Winery

A family run estate vineyard and winery.

Just off the shores of Okanagan Lake south of Kelowna, nestled in Okanagan Mountain Park, is a small vineyard called Scorched Earth Vineyard. Replanted after the 2003 wildfires with 4 single lot French clones of Pinot Noir grapes. Different rootstocks were chosen for our varying soil conditions. We are an Organic Vineyard practicing sustainable organic viticulture. Our location provides us with the best the Okanagan has to to offer such as a great south-west exposure providing lots of sun. The vineyard slopes down to Okanagan Lake, providing great air flow and a cooling effect for our vines.
Our winery uses only our estate grown organic Pinot Noir grapes for our Pinot vintages. We only produce 500 cases of wine annually from hand picked and hand sorted premium French clones. We make classic cool climate Okanagan Pinot Noirs with as little intervention as possible. Our wines are made in small lots, only 80 cases were made of our 2014 Bearly Blushing Pinot Noir, and only 70 cases were made of our 2013 PASK the Pinot Noir.
