The Okanagan is well suited for the Burgundy style wines that Meyer Family Vineyards is known for producing. It is no surprise that winemaker, Chris Carson honed his talents making Pinot Noir in New Zealand’s Central Otago.
Canada is well-known for its harsh winters and increasingly for its fine wine. Microclimates created by Canada's large bodies of water and its mountains are what makes it possible to soften the impact of the winter climate. The Okanagan Lake and the Great Lakes benefit wine production in British Columbia and Ontario, respectively. But it was the North American Free Trade Agreement that jump-started the focus on quality in Canada, leading to lovely Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as some of the finest Icewines around.
