Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards has a long and rich history. It took nearly twenty years of growing grapes and making wine from this land to really pin down what makes it truly special. Not because we’re new at this, but precisely because you can’t rush a vine to mature, and you can’t hurry great wine. You don’t really know what you have with a newly planted vineyard for at least a decade, and anyone who tells you otherwise is telling tales.
And so it was at some point into that second decade when we started to see the really special qualities of the vineyard: an intensity of focus, laser-pointed crispness, brilliant fruitiness, and natural acidity. And it was at some point after that when it all came together in the idea of making traditional method bc sparkling wine, which, coincidentally, is also something you can’t rush.
And that’s our plan. Site-specific still wines that capture the unique profile of our special halfway between Peachland and Summerland, terroir-all-its-own vineyard. Grower-style, sparkling wine that works with the variability from vintage to vintage to capture a true statement of the year, the fruit and the people who made the wine. Sparkling that isn’t rushed. Traditional method sparkling wine made the way it was meant to be.
