The Okanagan Valley has seen a recent wave of acquisitions and new investments in wineries; Martin’s Lane Winery is an impressive new build.
The latest venture from Mission Hill Family Estate proprietor Anthony von Mandl is a winery created in honour of his late father.
It seems the global weather system is getting weirder and less predictable. And on the contentious but important subject of global warming? The study of how wine will react to climate change is one small but telling piece of the larger story of how agriculture as a whole will endure.
At the base of Mission Hill Family Estate’s monumental bell tower is a cast-iron sculpture affixed to a rectangular block of granite. The sculpture is emblematic of the winery’s proprietor. Whether it’s ski jumping or empire building, with Anthony von Mandl, it’s all about how far you can fly.
