Sandhill Estate Vineyard

A one-of-a-kind microclimate

Located in the South Okanagan, near Oliver, BC, the Sandhill Estate Vineyard is an exceptional site for growing single-vineyard wines. In addition, the collaboration
between master winemaker, Howard Soon and vineyard managers, Robert Goltz and Richard Cleave, continues to yield award-winning wine, vintage after vintage. Individual plant yields are controlled by cutting immature fruit from the vines. The result is small, fully-ripe grapes with concentrated flavours and a truly distinct character. 
The vineyard regularly registers temperatures near 40ºC and enjoys more sunshine than Napa Valley. Nestled up against a mountain, the rocky cliffs reflect intensified heat onto the vines. 
The vineyard is overseen by R&R Management, which is owned by Richard Cleave and Robert Golz. Together, they have over 45 years of grape growing experience. Robert, along with his son Nathan, manage the vineyard day-to-day.
