Meyer Family Vineyards in Okanagan Falls specializes in superlative Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This specialty is underscored by the awards won by their wines. “Based on our rankings at the 2013 WineAlign National Wine Awards, we placed #10 winery in Canada and #5 winery in BC,” says JAK Meyer who owns Meyer Family Vineyards with his wife Janice Stevens. “We’ve had the #1 Chardonnay in Canada two years in a row and two Pinot Noirs in the top five in Canada two years in a row.”
New releases include 2012 Okanagan Valley Pinot Noir, 2012 Reimer Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2012 McLean Creek Road Pinot Noir, 2012 Tribute Series Chardonnay, 2012 McLean Creek Road Chardonnay, 2012 Micro Cuvée Pinot Noir and 2012 Micro Cuvée Chardonnay.
Like all of their wines, these releases are born of the Meyer philosophy of focusing on small lot single vineyard wines of excellence in the traditions of Burgundy.
