Our Story

Remembering Our Founder

George Hanson
George Hanson was a well-loved member of the Similkameen community, having made an impact in the BC wine industry with his high-quality red wines and vibrant personality. Making wine was his greatest passion and it showed in the quality of his product. He took great pride in his wines and making blends is where his creativity shined.

George was an interesting character who loved to interact with the winery’s patrons during their visits. He particularly loved hosting epic winemaker’s dinners in the caves throughout the summer. These popular events would include great food, wine and George’s stories of his experiences growing and making wine. He would also treat all the guests to a tour of the wine cellar where he’d proudly share the details of how the caves were built.
 
George was often heard saying, “I feel very fortunate to be living my dream where work seems somewhat like play.”
 
Sadly, George died from a sudden heart attack in his home on the evening of Sunday, February 7th, 2021 at the age of 63.
