2022 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL

Haywire was established in 2009, with the first tiny crop harvested at Switchback Organic Vineyard, starting life as a virtual brand. Today, Haywire has grown into its own as an anchor attraction in Summerland, BC, unveiling a bold new label and a relaxing new visitor lounge spring 2023. Haywire celebrates the Okanagan’s exceptional terroir, embracing a “less is more” style, utilizing state-of-the-art concrete tanks and a gentle winemaking hand.

100% Gamay fermented in small open top tanks and Nico Velo concrete with twice daily punchdowns for four weeks. 50% whole cluster for increased mid palate weight. A lovely, delectable herbaceousness and a silky finish that only Okanagan Gamay can deliver. Textbook. Pair with gourmet pizzas or charcuterie.
