In 2008, Rod and Pat Fortin decided to retire to the interior of British Columbia.
What they found, in Oliver, was the stunning Wine Capital of Canada and the myriad of lush vineyards situated in the Okanagan Valley. Always looking for the next adventure, they purchased the property and converted it into a beautiful vineyard.
Living the dream? Thats just what they’re doing.
Retiring? Not a chance!
In 2016, son Tim and his wife Eileen purchased the adjoining property. Together with sons Kelsey and Taylor, they’ve planted the Mountainview vineyard, built the new winery facility and are now completing the tasting room.
Three generations working together is a dream come true.
The East Block was planted in 2010. The Mountainview Vineyard, in the background, was planted in 2016
Gravely, sandy soil with large rocks provides excellent drainage while retaining vital minerals to produce a healthy vineyard
