Kelsey Rufiange is a relatively new winemaker in the diverse Okanagan wine landscape. Her family planted vines on their property in 2013, and over the last few years, she took over all of the grape growing and wine making. She studied oenology and viticulture at Lincoln University and worked vintages in New Zealand, California and Australia. Their wines feature limited SO2 usage, relying on minimal intervention, natural fermentation with organic growing and biodynamic practices.    

 

This episode features my recent trip to the Okanagan region, with my stop in OK Falls to visit Kelsey and taste some of her wine. We also got to experience barrel samples from some of her up and coming wines. I'm joined in this podcast by my wife, who helped me share a great talk with Kelsey.      

 

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