As terroir négociants with over 60 years of farming in the South Okanagan, we believe terroir – the soil, site and climate of a particular region – trumps all. “I’m a terroirist”, declares owner winemaker Richard da Silva. “Place is fundamentally important to wine, and some grape varieties flourish better in other regions. I’m prepared to go anywhere in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valley for the best fruit.”
At the heart of it all is transparency. That’s why you’ll find the latitude and longitude of the source vineyard on the front label of our Suspect series wines, and the names and locations of our growers on the back label.
