Mother’s Day – not a simple day.

Relationships are complex, life is a journey and Mom’s come in many shapes and forms.


Many of you have likely visited with her in the Tasting Room … she is my Mom and the Winery’s proverbial ‘Mother Earth’. She is one of the hardest working of our Troupe (and she is the oldest). She is thoughtful, kind and has a thumb greeener than Mr. McGregor, keeping the winery picnic fridge stocked with the freshest veggies in Naramata. In her previous life she was a primary school teacher.

Collectively we celebrate Julia, who’s heartbreaks as a Mom have been profound, but whose love drives her to soldier on.

Wishing all mom’s, mom’s of choice or in spirit, moments of laughter, joy and beauty this Mother’s Day.
