Okanagan Crush Pad was founded on a long history of friendship, a mutual respect for land and wines that articulate “place”, a love of music and admiration for one-another’s accomplishments. When friends come together in this fashion, wine flows naturally and easily.
Okanagan Crush Pad is Canada’s first purpose-built custom crush facility where several different wine labels are produced along with our own wines Haywire and Narrative.
The winery is state-of-the-art and features large concrete tanks, with a guest center built into the heart of the facility offering visitors a rare glance into the art of winemaking. A tasting room and wine shop offer a place to sample and buy wine, while watching the action in the cellar. Here Matt Dumayne and team create wines from organic grapes, using native yeast for fermentation and minimal intervention. The wines reflect the region’s unique high mountain/northern desert setting, one that is noted for its intensely hot, short growing season with hallmark cool evenings.
In the month of May, a special 'fresh sheet' will see our charcuterie platters feature local produce to pair with our wine.
