Balance is a time-honored goal in the making of premium wines and working toward balance is a way of life at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Founder Jim Wyse is committed to balance, well beyond that of the fine, world-class wines being produced. A kind of Hippocratic oath (“to do no harm”) underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl.
The winery and vineyard lie within one of Canada’s most unique ecosystems known as the northernmost tip of the Sonora Desert. It is one of the most highly rated grape-growing locations in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys, and for that matter Canada.
In 1993 Jim Wyse began to replant the vineyards which had been carefully selected for their ability to produce world class, premium quality grapes. In 1998, the winemaking facility was built combining state-of-the-art technologies with proven, classic winemaking traditions. A gravity-flow system handles ripe grapes delicately, preserving their rich fruit character. Extensive underground cellaring capacity ensures that long term barrel aging is never limited by space. In 2006, the site was enhanced with a beautiful fine-dining Restaurant and luxurious Guest House in 2008.
You can find Burrowing Owl wines at many fine restaurants and wine shops and of course, at the winery itself. And when you visit, be sure to bring your binoculars.
Burrowing Owl Estate Winery defines where Old World meets New. Using cutting edge technology, and a purist winemaking philosophy steeped in tradition, their aim is to create the finest wines their carefully managed vineyards can produce. They have a commitment to quality wines.
