Winery group 2

BC Premier Christy Clark (right) visited Stoneboat Vineyards last Friday for the announcement of a $125,000 interest free loan to the winery to create a new type of wine (Piano Brut)  that is not currently made in BC. Shown from left welcoming the premier are winemaker Alison Moyes, proprietor Lanny Martiniuk (with open arms), winemaker Jay Martiniuk, general manager Tim Martiniuk, and proprietor Julie Martiniuk.                                                                                                                                                                                                      Lyonel Doherty photo



  1. I wish (probably in vain) that the Premier, and the BC government, would take more (any) interest in preserving more of the South Okanagan’s natural environment! This particular area is unique in Canada – the only desert-like area in Canada. There are more endangered and threatened species here than anywhere else in Canada – mainly due to the greediness of the wine industry, as well as developers.
