This Vineyard was the vision of Jack and Pauline Braun. Originally “Stoney Slopes Vineyard” it was developed in the early 80’s making it one of the older vineyards in the Okanagan. Over the years the fruit has been purchased by a handful of wineries in the valley and has made a reputation for itself.
The vineyard is situated at the south end of the bench in Okanagan Falls, BC; with a beautiful view of Vaseux Lake.
Stephen Carter purchased the vineyard in February 2012 and here is what he has to say about this special moment in his life.
“I saw… the vineyard for the first time in December 2011. What a peaceful place! In February of 2012 I purchased the vineyard. That summer the neighbors, a family of hawks, were found to be using the vineyard as their backyard. I’ve been sharing the vineyard with them ever since.”
Work hasn’t stopped. The vineyard is now the home of the BC Wine Studio winery. In June 2015 it also became the new home of The Hollow Amphitheater and Event Center. The Hollow is an amazing amphitheater hand made in the heart of the vineyard for entertainment and events.
Our estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Hawk’s Vineyard is at peak ripeness and ready to pick today during the harvest moon.
