As terroir négociants with over 60 years of farming in the South Okanagan, Canada 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 their Suspect series wines, and the names and locations of the growers on the back label.
Winemakers get all the awards and ego-stroking, but it’s the growers who should be recognized. We know. We’ve been farming in the south Okanagan since the early ’50’s.
Not only do we have a deep respect for the land and those who make a living from it, but over many decades we’ve gained an intimate knowledge of where each grape varietal is best necessary. As such, terroir alone determines where we get our fruit. Our hard-working, skilled growers are like family, and we’re proud of the long-standing relationships we have.
