The wines of Lake Breeze are known to be clean, crisp and fruit driven in style. We endeavour to take the natural expression of the grape and transfer it to the bottle with as little intervention as possible. In addition to our own estate vineyard, we purchase grapes from many local growers on the Naramata Bench.
We produce a variety of red wines in both single varietal and blends including a classic Bordeaux blend, Meritage, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Pinotage. For whites we are well known for our Ehrenfelser, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc.
In 2016 we introduced an additional premium wine made by Garron Elmes under the MacIntyre Heritage Reserve label.
Garron Elmes has been the winemaker at Lake Breeze since the very first days of the winery. Now a Canadian citizen, Garron was born in Capetown, South Africa. He attended Elsenburg College in Stellenbosch, gaining diplomas in both oenology and viticulture. Though he has become a hockey fan, his true sports passion is rugby and the South African Springboks.
Garron welcomes you to the farm to sample his wines, which emphasize the true character of the varietal-- from our signature Pinot Blanc to our Cellar Series Tempest.
