Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars is a family-owned winery in BC’s Okanagan Valley and is distinctive among Canadian wineries in that all its wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown on the estate’s vineyards. Ian Mavety purchased the land which is now Blue Mountain Vineyard in 1971. Current owners Ian, Jane, Matt, and Christie Mavety continue to work to realize the potential of the region, utilizing sustainable farming methods and winemaking practices. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its first vintage this year, Blue Mountain continues to offer complex and cellar-worthy varietal wines.

Proceeds from the event will support the charitable work of the British Columbia Hospitality Foundation (BCHF), which offers scholarships to students enrolled in Hospitality programs and financial assistance to those employed in food, beverage and hospitality professions when facing financial hardship due to critical medical needs.

About Blue Mountain Winery

[imgset:72157617093632629,square,true]

Blue Mountain is a family run vineyard and winery located in the picturesque South Okanagan Valley, overlooking Vaseaux Lake. The Mavety family has farmed this fertile bench since 1971 and founded the winery in 1991, with a commitment to sustainable viticulture practices and using exclusively estate-grown grapes. Blue Mountain strives to produce complex, age-worthy wines, consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual season. The grapes that are harvested for Blue Mountain wines are sourced solely from its own vineyard. In the winery, Matt combines new technology with traditional techniques. The wines are handled minimally to ensure that the delicacy and intensity of flavours cultivated in the vineyard are expressed in the wine. French oak barrels are used in the cellar to soften and add complexity. All of these factors combine to result in a style and finesse fitting to the varietals. The 12,000-case yearly production consists of Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and a méthode traditionnel sparkling wine, all from estate grown grapes.
