About JoieFarm

joiefarm-night-crush

JoieFarm is owned and operated by Heidi Noble and is located on their farm on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley in the interior of British Columbia. JoieFarm is interested exclusively in the grape varieties of Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne which excel in the cool-climate, desert landscape of the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. We are particularly interested in making these wines because not only are they wines that we love and enjoy drinking, but we feel these varieties thrive and are relevant in our area. As young winemakers at the forefront of a new wine region, we are interested in exploring the potential and synergy between these aromatic varietals and their role in distinguishing the culinary West Coast of Canada as an emerging and unified cuisine.
