The seeds of what would become the Blue Mountain vineyard were first planted when Ian Mavety and his wife Jane acquired a picturesque parcel of land situated on a bench overlooking Vaseux Lake in the South Okanagan in 1971. More than four decades of family ownership later, the label is hailed for its complex, age-worthy and terroir-driven wines produced from 100-per-cent estate-grown grapes.
“This is a unique opportunity for our guests to enjoy a meticulously planned menu, paired with some standout wines produced by a family that can be considered a true pioneer of the inception and continued growth of BC’s burgeoning wine industry,” says Potters.
