Get Ready for an Amazing Summer
The summer is shaping up to be a great season and tourists are already starting to flock to the Okanagan. After two years of operating with limited space, Okanagan Crush Pad (OCP) has renovated its visitor area to accommodate more people and offer diverse experiences. The winery is now set up to host sit down tutored tastings for up to ten people at its cellar long table, in addition to offering a relaxed patio seating area for picnics and a new tasting bar in the wine lounge.
“Visitors tell us that OCP offers a unique experience as our guest area is built into the heart of the winery. It is the winery equivalent of an “open kitchen concept” so people can watch our winemakers at work and get a first-hand glance into how our state-of-the-art facility operates. As one of the first wineries in Canada to extensively use concrete tanks you can learn about the benefits and taste the resulting Raised in Concrete™ wines”, Christine Coletta (owner of OCP) comments.
Following is a list of the public events.
Tickets can be purchased online.

Okanagan Crush Pad, producer of Haywire and Bartier Scholefield wines, is quickly building a reputation as one of the premium producers in the Okanagan. The winemaking team includes world renowned Tuscan-based consultant Alberto Antonini, wine expert David Scholefield, and winemakers Michael Bartier and Matt Dumayne.
Located in beautiful Summerland, BC, the winery overlooks Switchback vineyard, an organic site that is also home to roaming sheep and chickens. Okanagan Crush Pad crafts wines that are symbolic of the region’s unique high mountain/northern desert setting which has an intensely hot, short growing season with hallmark cool evenings. The winery is the first in Canada to extensively use concrete tanks and wines that are fermented and aged in concrete carry the Raised in Concrete™ designation.
Visitors to the guest center, built right into the heart of the production facility, get a rare glance into the art of winemaking.
