Having recently released our 2012 Meritage and Syrah, we are a premium BC vineyard offering high quality red wine from the beautiful Similkameen Valley.

Hello and welcome to our first blog post!

We are pleased to introduce you to one of the newest members of the BC wine family, Vanessa Vineyard. Planted in 2006, the vineyard is located on a sweeping vista that overlooks the Similkameen Valley in the Thompson-Okanagan region. Taking cue from the unique rocky landscape and the expert advice of industry veterans, we have focused on growing high quality red grapes that the area is well adapted to produce.

Almost a decade has past since we began the process of transforming a quiet grazing pasture into a world-class vineyard and our newest offerings are well worth the wait. Our Meritage is an elegant yet full-bodied Cabernet-based blend. The Syrah is another full-bodied red that possesses soft tannins, good structure and concentrated flavours.

You can find both of our wines being served by Vancouver’s top sommeliers at several of the city’s best restaurants. They are also available to order online in a mixed case here.

Once you’ve experienced our elegant offerings, you’ll want to sign up here to become part of the Vanessa Vineyard Wine Club. You’ll receive exclusive availability to our limited production wine and private events. You’ll also receive a monthly newsletter updating you on our winemaking process, upcoming events and much more.
