Okanagan Crush Pad – home to Haywire and Narrative Wines is in located in Summerland, BC, on Switchback Organic Vineyard, built in 2011. The facility, offering still and sparkling wines, has quickly built a reputation as a premium winery receiving unprecedented awards and accolades with chief winemaker Matt Dumayne at the helm.
Visitors discover a guest center, built into the heart of the winery, offering a rare glance into the art of winemaking and a place where guests can taste, purchase, and enjoy a charcuterie plate with a glass of wine or a cocktail on the patio. Take in the concert series, featuring live music on Thursday evenings in July and August.
Dumayne crafts natural wines using organically farmed grapes in state-of-the-art concrete tanks, native yeast and minimal additives. The wines reflect the region’s unique high mountain/northern desert setting noted for its intensely hot, short growing season with hallmark cool evenings. In constant pursuit of innovation, the team added a line of wine-based spirits under the Narrative label in 2015.
