Ted is a perfectionist and a dreamer who is very good with his hands. Ted is the owner, vineyard manager, viticulturalist, winemaker, builder and dad of the establishment. He is continually acquiring knowledge and building on his roots from the University of Alberta and the Northern Institute of Technology. Prior to starting the vineyard, Ted was a Respiratory Therapist for 12 years, but has always been interested in and obsessed with winemaking and grape-growing. Ted’s dreams and attention to detail are evident in every aspect of the winery, from the vineyard layout, to the house construction, to the flavors in the wine.
Lorraine is the co-owner, but like many wives on family farms, has a town job. Lorraine is a rural family doctor in the nearby community of Osoyoos. Fortunately for Ted, she was raised on a farm and understands much of the weather and financial concerns that are common to the industry. When not in the clinic or hospital, she can be found in the gardens that surround the house and winery. Her other interest is sampling wines and developing her palate, but operates mainly on the principle that a good wine is one that you like.
