Nestled in the glaciated countryside between the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges, Baillie-Grohman is at the vanguard of Creston, BC’s emerging wine region. With geology ranging from heavy soil to light sand and loam, as well as a microclimate moderated by the Goat River and Kootenay lake, Baillie-Grohman’s vineyard maintains low yields through careful pruning and restrained use of drip irrigation. The resulting fruit goes into wines that are bursting with vitality and the essence of the region. Proprietors Bob Johnson and Petra Flaa named the winery of William Baillie-Grohman, a 19th century frontiersman who dreamed of the Creston Valley Flats’ potential for agriculture. It’s a dream that the winery sustains into the modern day.
