About the winery

Okanagan Crush Pad, producer of Haywire and Narrative, has quickly built a reputation as a premium winery and has received unprecedented awards and accolades with chief winemaker Matt Dumayne at the helm. Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie built Okanagan Crush Pad in scenic Summerland, BC, on Switchback Organic Vineyard, a site that is home to roaming sheep, chickens and ducks. Dumayne crafts natural wines using state-of-the-art concrete tanks, native yeast and minimal additives. The wines reflect the region's unique high mountain/northern desert setting noted for its intensely hot, short growing season with hallmark cool evenings. In their constant pursuit of innovation, the team added a line of wine-based spirits under the Narrative label in 2015. Visitors discover a guest centre, built into the heart of the winery, offering a rare glance into the art of winemaking and a place where they can sample and purchased a wide range of wines and spirits.
