La Feuille D’Or is our vineyard in the Golden Mile, one of the absolute best terroirs in the Okanagan Valley. The views east across the valley are lovely with the Oliver canal in the foreground and Black Sage Bench in the background. In 2010 4 acres of vineyards was wiped out by a mudslide that originated high in the hills west of the valley. Among the vines that were lost was a block of 30+ year old Chardonnay vines.
