Where is the Prospect Winery located?
Can we visit the winery?

The Prospect Winery is a virtual winery, so we unfortunately don’t have a place to visit us in the Okanagan… yet. We partner with local BC VQA wineries to bottle my wines.
In the Okanagan Valley, I select grapes from select estate vineyards that are in the process of Organic certification, 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 give you outstanding quality for value. We hope to develop our own winery location in coming years.

THE WINES


Are your wines Organic?

Our premium grapes are picked from Okanagan Valley Estate vineyards that are in the process of getting certified as Organic (it takes over 3 years). We sustainably farm all of our vineyards, respecting the land and nature of the Okanagan.

Our Niagara Peninsula VQA wines are not Organic.


What are your sustainability standards?

We believe in sustainability and minimizing our ecological footprint.
We use sustainably farmed vineyards that are in the process of getting certified Organic. We are also an early adopter of the BC Wine Grape Council’s “BC Sustainable Winegrowing Program” created in 2011.
We use drip irrigation to control vine growth and advance ripening. In our partner Estate vineyards, unmanicured cover crops with a mix of grass, clover, and flowers are a soft approach to weed control, erosion, encourage beneficial insects, and enrich soil with nitrogen and other important nutrients.

We believe in sustainability and minimizing our ecological footprint.
We work with our partner growers to ensure we have quality fruit that is grown as sustainably as possible.


Are your wines gluten-free?

Yes – all of our wines are 100% gluten-free.

Are your wines Vegetarian/Vegan?

Unfortunately, we cannot claim vegan-friendly status on our wines as we do occasionally use natural dairy-based products in the fermentation and bottling process.
We recognize that this is an important factor in choosing wine and will continue to monitor the market for viable alternatives to our current winemaking process; to date, we have not found a satisfactory substitute.
