Okanagan Crush Pad is committed to making wines that are pure Okanagan and celebrate the distinctive beauty and exceptional growing conditions of our vineyards. In addition to our own flagship wines, Haywire and Bartier Scholefield, we make wines for people who are seeking to start their own winery, and is the first purpose built custom crush facility in the Okanagan. This state-of-the-art Summerland winery, owned by Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie, is located on the 10-acre Switchback Vineyard overlooking Lake Okanagan. The vineyard is now home to baby doll sheep and chickens and is working towards greater biodiversity. We have the capacity to produce 30,000 cases annually, using stainless, concrete and oak vessels. Our wine making team includes Matt Dumayne and consulting winemaker Alberto Antonini. The visitor experience is set in the heart of the cellar, offering a rare glance into the art of wine making. We are open seasonally from mid-June to mid-September seven days a week.
