Following a career in the investment business and raising two young girls, we decided to completely change directions and get into the wine business. We set out to establish ourselves as one of BC’s top wineries focusing on small-lot premium Chardonnay and later Pinot Noir.
The plan was to surround myself with the best people I could in each area. We enlisted James Cluer MW and Rhys Pender MW to build our business plan. We hired Pierre Levesque to look after the vineyard and our final piece of the puzzle was to hire Chris Carson who had just returned to Canada after honing his skills and education in Central Otago. I now spend my days actively in sales, administration, tastings, events, viticulture, winemaking (cleaning tanks), landscaping and wherever else the experts will let me.
In traditional French burgundy style we focus on small case lots of varietals best suited and expressive of their unique place of origin with an emphasis on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We produce about 8,000 cases and strive to produce the finest wines possible. Our wines are hand harvested and hand crafted and we take great pride in each bottle of wine with great attention to detail.
We hope that you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoy making them! ~ JAK & Janice Meyer
Our Philosophy and Vineyards
To produce the finest quality wines in the traditions of burgundy, we followed certain philosophies, strategies and techniques in production. Each wine reflects the single vineyard of its origin, the soil, the climate, the slope. Hand harvested, hand crafted, with great attention to detail, we take pride in each bottle of wine. Meyer Family Vineyards wines are produced on 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.
Winemaker Chris Carson brings a wealth of 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.
Our tasting room is located at our home vineyard on McLean Creek Road in Okanagan Falls. We are open daily from 10AM to 5PM April 1st through October 31st and by appointment from November 1st through March 31st.
Our wine lounge is the perfect setting to sip on a glass of our award-winning wine or a locally crafted beer or cider. Take in the stunning views of Peach Cliff Bluff and enjoy an afternoon in our beautiful vineyard setting while trying some of our delicious artisan foods.
*Wine lounge open daily from 11AM to 5PM beginning June 1st.
