To produce the finest quality wines in the traditions of Burgundy, we believe the wines are not made but grown. Each wine reflects the single vineyard of its origin, the soil, the meso-climate, the aspect and the people that hand tend the vines. Hand-harvested and hand-crafted, with great attention to detail and minimal winemaking intervention we take pride in each bottle of wine. Meyer Family Vineyards wines are produced from two main vineyards, the 1.62-hectare “Old Main Road” vineyard on the Naramata Bench and the 6.9-hectare “McLean Creek Road” vineyard in Okanagan Falls. We also work with passionate quality-minded growers in Kaleden and the East Kelowna area to round out our portfolio of terroir-driven wines.
Winemaker Chris Carson brings a wealth of global experience to Meyer Family Vineyards. His philosophy is to care for the grape on the vine and maintain as much as possible a hands-off approach in the cellar to allow the true expression of the terroir.
At Meyer Family Vineyards, we follow time tested philosophies, strategies and techniques to produce the finest quality wines. Each wine reflects the single vineyard of it’s origin, the soil, the climate, the slope.
Our carefully selected grapes are grown on three main vineyards:
McLean Creek Road Vineyard Okanagan Falls, British Columbia
This is our home vineyard where our tasting room is located. The vineyard was originally planted in 1994. It has a predominantly steep southerly aspect with the soil comprised of alluvial and glacial deposits making up a mix of gravel and sandy loams.
Chardonnay – 3.5 acres planted
Pinot Noir – 11 acres planted
Gewurztraminer – 1.5 acres planted
Old Main Road Vineyard Naramata Bench, British Columbia
This vineyard is located on a terrace that has a gentle northerly aspect with the soil comprised of alluvial deposits making up a silt loam overlaying a clay loam. The vineyard was originally planted in 1996 with 100% Chardonnay vines.
Chardonnay – 4 acres planted
Lakehill Road Vineyard Kaleden, British Columbia
This vineyard is located in the rolling hills of Kaleden with a gentle, westerly aspect. The soils are comprised of alluvial and glacial deposits similar to our McLean Creek vineyard but with a higher proportion of silt loam integrated into the gravel loam. The 3-acre vineyard was planted with Pinot Noir in 2009 with 50% clone 115 and 50% clone 777.
Keep an eye out for the maiden vintages coming from this vineyard in the future.
