Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie created Okanagan Crush Pad as a purpose-built custom crush facility. Located in beautiful Summerland, British Columbia. They have quickly built a reputation as a premium producer and has received many awards and accolades since its launch in 2011 with chief winemaker Matt Dumayne at the helm. The winery overlooks Switchback Organic Vineyard. From here, their own wines; Haywire, Narrative, and Free Form are made. Dumayne and his cellar team craft unadulterated wines using state-of- the- art concrete tanks, native yeast and minimal winemaking intervention.
VITICULTURE + VINIFICATION
Secrest Mountain Vineyard, Oliver, Okanagan, British Columbia Watkin Family Vineyards, Summerland, Okanagan, British Columbia The Bub is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes which were harvested mid-August 2015. Primary fermentation took place in a combination of concrete and stainless steel tanks before bottling in November 2015 for secondary fermentation. Disgorged late December 2016 with no sugar added in the dosage. No malolactic is used.
This vintage is a shining example of what the Okanagan does best – crisp, fresh, and delicious wines. Citrus and toasty notes and a textured, light eervescence. It is a bold, dry, austere bubbly.
