Moraine’s vineyards are named after their two daughters, Sophia and Anastasia. A third vineyard is named after their grand-daughter Lily. The Sophia Vineyard is the smaller and younger of the two being 5 acres and planted by Svetlana and Oleg upon their arrival to Penticton. It is located closer to Penticton and is planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The Anastasia Vineyard is the bigger and older of the two, composed of 10 acres and planted before the arrival of the couple. It is planted with Merlot, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz and Riesling. Moraine Winery looks out to the lake over the Anastasia Vineyard. The recent addition to Moraine is the Lily vineyard. Lily vineyard is located on the Upper Bench and is home to an assortment of grape varietals including Merlot and Gamay.
The signature bench lands of Naramata expose a face of the clay that can be seen below Moraine’s vineyard, and this exceptional landscape contributes to the creation of fresh, elegant, fruit-driven wines of distinction. With a goal of using only fruit grown on Naramata Bench, Moraine’s inaugural vintage wines offer a unique, desirable flavour profile. The western exposure of the vineyards permits the vines to capture every ray of sunlight from mid-morning to nightfall, and this, combined with a cooling breeze, delivers beautifully ripe and flavourful grapes.
