Terravista Vineyards was started in 2008 by Bob and Senka Tennant. Bob and Senka have been in the BC grape/wine industry for the past 16 years. Senka as winemaker and Bob as vineyard and business operator at their first business, Black Hills Estate Winery. In 2007, Black Hills was sold and Bob and Senka, not wanting to leave the industry, started looking for a small piece of property on which to establish a new vineyard and winery.
The property has a great southwestern slope with very rocky, sandy soils. In elevation it is above the heavier lake deposits characteristic of the lower benches. An excellent location to plant the white grapes varietals they wanted to grow. The two chosen grape varieties for the home vineyard were Albarino and Verdejo - white grape varieties grown for 9 centuries in northwest Spain and Portugal.
