Hi! I'm Corrie Krehbiel, Winemaker for Prospect of the Okanagan.
I grew up in the Okanagan Valley, and I'm 4th generation of a family of Okanagan fruit farmers. I've seen so much change in the valley, but I've always known that it's one of the best wine regions in the world to grow quality fruit to make exceptional wine. Prospect to me means possibilities and potential. Potential for the Okanagan Valley to be the next hot wine region. I craft my wines to recognize the nature and diversity in the Okanagan that make growing great grapes and exceptional wines possible. I select grapes from select estate vineyards, as well as key partner vineyards that have been farmed in partnership for decades.
We use age-old winemaking and viticulture techniques, coupled with modern technology, such as drone-assisted harvesting and optical grape sorting to deliver outstanding quality.
The Prospect Winery is a virtual winery, so we don't have a place to visit in the Okanagan yet. We partner with local BC wineries to bottle my wines.
We hope to develop our own winery location in coming years.
