Martin’s Lane is a winery crafting exceptional wines of Pinot Noir and Riesling. Their wines are tended, harvested and crafted by hand according to winemaker Munn. “We don’t interfere. We don’t use a single pump. We believe this brings out elegant and complex expressions of Pinot Noir and Riesling.”
We are pleased to present our latest #ShiptoSip winery with complimentary shipping within Canada.

Wild. Elusive. Welcome to the northern part of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, one of the most breathtaking places on our planet to grow grapes. Ancient volcanic and glacial soils settle amongst precipitous hillsides. The area is blessed with warm days, cool nights and the lowest rainfall and humidity of any wine-producing region. Our unique latitude and altitude conspire to yield a dramatic viticultural landscape which produce intense and balanced fruit. This is winemaking on the edge.
I like to wander the three tiny estate vineyards every morning to get to know and check on the individual blocs. Kurt and I will often do this together. I take a micro view of the vineyard and think about wines right down to the single block or vine. I consider my winemaking approach gentle and guiding. We use gravity alone, and five simple movements in our 6-level winery. Our wines are tended, harvested and crafted by hand. We don’t interfere. We don’t use a single pump. We believe this brings out elegant and complex expressions of Pinot Noir and Riesling.
“I see my challenge as harvesting the amazing light, and allowing each bottle to represent pure nature”
– Shane Munn, Winemaker
Editor’s note: I had the opportunity to visit this exquisite winery in the summer of 2018. “The architecture is bold, dramatically announcing it’s eye-catching presence. A visit to Martin’s Lane is an exciting journey into the world of superior wines that pay homage to the wines of Burgundy in style and taste.” read more about my visit here.
