This episodes features my conversation with Jason Parkes. The man behind the winery that is the hatch, and the various entities that flow from it. Jason and his team have made a name for themselves by being unique and providing some character and fun to the world of wine, and because of this, they are a known presence in the Okanagan. Their tasting room is always full. 

 

 Jason and I sat down for an hour and talked a lot of topics, some of them too controversial to be recorded. I learned a lot more about the man that runs this fun, dynamic brand known as the hatch. He has a great team of people that assist him, and because of them, his ideas have flourished.  

      

Get ready for a fun conversation. Pull up a chair, grab a glass and enjoy!

This episodes features three short interviews, and a recap of the BC Pinot Celebration from Kelowna. I was fortunate enough to stay with my friends on the Kitsch Wines property, and sample 25-30 different wineries at this celebration.

 

Also, I was invited to the Garagiste North Wine Festival, which focuses on small wineries in BC, that make 2000 cases or less. Some of them truly are garagiste level, while others are verging on big name success. I was lucky enough to taste quite a few, with some of course being a very low intervention style, so a definite contrast to the bigger wineries. All in all, a great weekend. 

 

I also managed to record a few minutes with three of my favourites from the Garagiste North Wine Festival, which was at Sperling Vineyards in East Kelowna. Mike Mosny of Winemaker's Cut, Anthony Buchanan, who is the head winemaker of Desert Hills, now has his own side label called Anthony Buchanan Wines, and finally Tyler Knight from Lightning Rock, who shares the wine growing and wine making duties with his wife, Jordan Kubek.
