Our Founders, Cynthia and David Enns instilled a passion that we carry on today, to continuously be to explore and create the best wines that showcase the Okanagan Valley. Laughing Stock Vineyards is a team driven and hands-on operation – we take pride in diligently tending to every stage of the winegrowing and winemaking processes.
We are fortunate to work with top-of-the-line winery equipment like double sorting tables to ensure that only the best fruit clusters are used. We can also regulate how much whole berry fruit goes into the fermenters. We aim to always improve the wines year to year and as such we have been exploring a variety of fermentation vehicles over the past few years including temperature regulated stainless tanks, and the addition of eight concrete eggs with nicknames such as “Free Range,” “Scrambled”, “Fabergé” & “Benedict”. We have also acquired six clay Amphorae from Italy, in which we make a variety of limited production wines. Complexity is added to the red wines through an extended barrel-aging program using 100% French oak in both standard barrels sizes and 500 liter puncheons.
Our estate winery vineyard in the Naramata Bench is home to all the Bordeaux grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec & Petit Verdot) that are included in our flagship wine, Portfolio. Since acquiring the 22 acre Perfect Hedge Vineyard (Osoyoos) in 2007, we have seen it nicely maturing as home to Bordeaux varieties (Merlot, Malbec & Cabernet Sauvignon) as well as Viognier and Syrah (2011 Winner of Lt. Governor’s Award of Excellence in BC Wines). Southwest exposure above Osoyoos Lake and in Canada’s only desert makes this location ideal for the big reds.
