AT ITS CORE, winemaking is a balancing act. Finding the right vineyard; adjusting care of the fruit to the evolving weather; knowing just when to pick to capture all the goodness of the grape; then nurturing the wine until you bottle it, ready to send your creation into the world.
Lyndsay O’Rourke seems to have found all those pieces and put them together with her grape-growing husband, Graham. They are owners of the appropriately named Tightrope Winery on the Naramata Bench in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.
Together, they are crafting wines of remarkable beauty whose hallmark is fresh fruit with a sense of place and balance.
A behind-the-scenes opportunity to taste wines straight from barrel. Join Naramata Bench winemakers May 13, 2017 who will be rolling out their barrels to give you the experience of tasting upcoming new wines and interesting blends before they reach the bottle. Check out Naramata Bench Winery Assocation for more details.
