Set in the heart of Okanagan Wine Country in British Columbia, Canada, 50th Parallel Estate is a majestic 61 acre site near the shores of Lake Okanagan. It is only 15 minutes from Kelowna International Airport and a mere 8 minute drive to world-class destinations, Predator Ridge Golf Resort and Sparkling Hill Spa.
With unmatched geography, the southwest sloping site enjoys long days boosted by lake reflectivity. Bright, dry, and frost-free, it has natural geological properties with rare, red granite sand and soil. Our winemaker is very excited to see such similar soils to some great Alsatian vineyards, and the exclamation point of a dry low pressure growing environment holds some outstanding vintages ahead.
Pinot Noir will make up nearly 40% of the Estate Vineyard planting, with Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer balancing the vineyard blocks planted in unison with the undulating natural topography.
