The Wyse family, founders of the winery, are committed to Balance, a time-honored goal. A kind of Hippocratic oath (“to do no harm”) underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. The winery and vineyards lie within one of Canadas most exceptional grape growing regions in the South Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. Each drop of Burrowing Owl wine comes from grapes grown in their carefully managed vineyards. Grapes are harvested manually, and processed by a gentle system of gravity flow. Cellaring is managed underground, with extensive naturally cooled caves for barrel ageing. Since the first vintage in 1997, the winery has consistently offered wines of ultra-premium quality, truthful to their outstanding terroir. These wines offer the consumer a glimpse into a unique wine region and the bounty of British Columbias Okanagan and Similkameen valleys.
