Have you ever found that place?
After years of searching, we discovered this property in 2012 just past Naramata village when it was an abandoned pear orchard.
Never having had a house on it before, the address listed was 1 Mill Road.
And it was exactly a million dollars.
Now planted exclusively to Pinot Noir, we live on this vineyard and grow and make the wine from this place.
The winegrower and the winemaker
It's simple. She grows the grapes. He makes the wine. We both love it.
It's been over two decades making wine, having founded Laughing Stock Vineyards, one of the early wineries on the Naramata Bench.
Now, we are bringing it back to the basics. This time, we’re going deep with one varietal and one place, our home block vineyard in Naramata, British Columbia.

The wine - pinot noir
Grown on the Okanagan Valley’s heavier silty soils of the Naramata Bench, this vineyard site maximizes south west exposure and the close proximity to Okanagan Lake allows for long days and a long growing season. Handpicked and hand sorted, the grapes are fermented and aged in beautiful wooden French oak tanks in the Naramata Wine Vault.
