Harvest Season at CheckMate


Winemaker Phil McGahan and the CheckMate Team are well into the 2017 Harvest and Vintage.  We have begun with Chardonnay from our eastern vineyards on Osoyoos Lake Bench and Black Sage Bench which will become Capture, Knight’s Challenge and Little Pawn.  Our grapes are hand-picked at night, chilled, hand sorted and gently pressed to preserve the quality of the pristine fruit. 

2017 Fall Harvest Dinner

Join Winemaker Phil McGahan for our premiere Fall Harvest Dinner, Saturday, September 30, 2017.  This unique dining experience will take place in The Installation, our bespoke tasting room, designed by Seattle based Starchitect Tom Kundig.

Enjoy our Chardonnays and Merlots in this intimate space amongst the autumn colours, paired with a four-course farm to table dinner created by Joy Road Catering.

Dinner begins at 6:00 pm
