Corcelettes Estate Winery, located on 150 acres in the Similkameen Valley, blends passion, precision and science to craft expressive, small lot premium wines. Led by Charlie and Jesce Baessler, the skilled team at Corcelettes is committed to creating exceptional wines and experiences. In history the word “Corcelettes” described a royal garden; this hasn’t changed with the team’s continued attention to the land and precision practices in both the vineyard and cellar.
We place greatest care in our viticulture and believe in making our wine on the vine. Cultivating our estate vineyard and working closely with our local growers, no short cuts are ever taken in finding balance between viticulture, our environment, and winemaking. Our first vintage was in 2011, consisting of 200 cases. We currently craft 5000 cases of wine per year, with plans of each future vintage growing in production size.
With 23 planted acres and expanding, we present a growing range of premium wines that showcase the versatility of varietal expression the Similkameen Valley offers. Our portfolio includes exquisite whites, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Bordeaux varietal reds, all crafted from 100% Similkameen grown grapes. There is also a small selection of premium wines from the Micro Lot Series, wines crafted from specially selected grapes available only in limited quantities that are typically available to “Club Corcelettes” members only.
The Similkameen Valley is a rugged, magical place that is the Canadian wine industry’s best kept not-so-secret anymore, and we couldn’t be more proud to have planted our roots here. Passion, precision, progression and purpose- this is what makes Corcelettes unique.
