Moon Curser Vineyards
Deep in Osoyoos, just shy of the US border, hides the Okanagan Valley’s most elusive winery.
Named after moonlight-evading gold rush smugglers, Moon Curser pursues clandestine (some would say fascinating) grape varieties like Touriga Nacional and Tannat, with an occasional Syrah or Bordeaux blend thrown in for diversion.
Highly prized by both good guys and those of questionable repute, Moon Curser wines are treasured across Canada’s finest dimly lit dining establishments.
