About Sukh and Neetu Bajwa

Sukh and Neetu Bajwa bought Eau Vivre winery in 2017, it’s our third harvest we are still fairly new at this and learning the ropes as we go. This was our dream and Sukh’s passion for more than a decade, a lot of hard work and believe it or not Sukh is doing it all by himself. He wants to learn every aspect of winemaking and vineyard management. Anthony Buchanan is our consulting winemaker as Sukh’s background is nothing about winemaking.

Sukh was civil engineer and then entrepreneur and owned a couple of hospitality businesses. We fell in love with winemaking when we first visited the Okanagan in 2005 and then it took 10 years for Sukh to convince me, lol.

We fell in love with Eau Vivre when we first tasted their wine and couldn’t resist that it was for sale, excellent wines almost all of them award winning especially Pinot noir which won Lieutenant Governor awards.

We only have 3 acres and 2 acres are planted in Riesling and gewurztraminer, the vines are approx 15 years old. 2019 the harvest was a low yield because of the cold snap earlier this year. We lost almost 40% of our vines. Summer was good, no fire, hence no smoke but August was a bit wet and September was the wettest in recent history. End product is looking really good, though low alcohol levels, but really aromatic, less case production.

We make small batch high quality wines and will continue to do so, future planning is to buy some more land in Similkameen if possible. We are transitioning from sustainable growing to certified organic in five years.
