DID YOU KNOW?
Lake Country is the most northern wine region in the Okanagan and not surprisingly it also has the coolest climate. It gets 4” more rain on average when compared to Osoyoos, the most southern Okanagan region. Steep slopes hugging the Okanagan Lake and modern advances in viticulture such as wind machines prevent frost damaging the vines and buds in autumn, winter and spring.
Lake Country is an unofficial sub-appellation, as BC remains prudent when implementing new regulations to make it official. However, there is no doubt this remains a unique terrior to any other part of the Okanagan wine region. The area has a good variety of soils with clay, gravel and limestone all providing essential minerals and the right balance of water retention.
George and Trudy Heiss pioneered this wine region back in 1976 when they started Gray Monk winery. Now known for their Sparkling Odyssey white Brut, and unique riesling hybrids. The Rotberger rose stood out to us in 2018. Gray Monk was the only winery in the region for 27 years, until Arrowleaf Cellars also saw the potential of this cool climate region. Several others now like ExNihlo and O'Rourke Peak Cellars have converted the cherry and apple orchards of the area into exceptional vineyards.
