Deadman Lake Vineyard is located between Oliver and Osoyoos, British Columbia. Situated on the western side of the valley this vineyard lies 100 meters south-west of Deadman Lake and roughly 1200 meters north of the renown Spotted Lake. The terrain is rich in minerals, sulphur and natural elements in heavy concentration, exclusive to the Okanagan valley and evident in CUT wines. Sustainable farming methods are implemented here and this vineyard honors a zero pesticides, zero herbicides, and zero artificial fertilizer policy. Safely sustained - naturally farmed.
Deadman Lake Vineyard is host to a unique micro climate. Vineyard temps can reach 40°C, and often remain above 30°C for several days/weeks at a time supporting adequate on-the-vine ripening time. With extended seasonal daylight hours that prolong daily photosynthesis, minimal concern over high winds, and terraces that evenly distribute precipitation, this vineyard is ideal for dry farming techniques.
Predominantly shale and chernozem soil, rich in humus and carbonates, along with traces of magnesium, calcium, sulphur and sodium as is unique to the terrain of our close neighbour and natural wonder, Spotted Lake, result in fructuous soil that naturally retains and evenly distributes moisture.
Spotted Lake is one of many Okanagan attractions. Known as KLILUK to First Nations, Spotted Lake has long been recognized and preserved as a sacred cultural and medicinal site.
