Proudly farming and producing award winning wines in Lake Country, BC since 2008.
Intrigue Wines was established in 2008 when two families joined together to explore their passion for wine.
The strength of the partnership is in the complementary experiences that each partner brings to the table.
A winemaker, an accountant, an internet entrepreneur and a healthcare advisor - all pursuing their fascination and curiosity for wine.
Ross and Geri and both third generation "Kelownians".
Geri's introduction to the wine industry came in 1998 when she joined the team of Cascadia Brands, the parent company for Calona Wines, Sandhill Wines, Granville Island Brewing, and International Potters and Grady Wine Marketing. After eight years with a diverse portfolio of wine, beer, and spirits, Geri transitioned to the family Estate winery of Gray Monk Cellars where she worked as the company controller for 14 years.
Internet entrepreneur by day and farmer by night, Ross truly is a jack-of-all-trades. From logistics to packaging and design, Ross can skillfully do it all.
(Together, Ross, Geri, and their daughter Alisha, farm 10 acres in beautiful Lake Country, BC.)
East and west coasts combined when Roger - hailing from Coquitlam BC and Jillian, from Saint John NB, met in 2003.
Roger joined the BC wine industry in 1995 after many years experimenting with wine techniques. Tinhorn Creek provided a training ground for starting a winery from the ground up. Pinot Reach and Gray Monk helped solidify Roger's winemaking techniques and vineyard management skills. Invaluable experience from the vineyard to the glass has helped Roger craft our award-winning wines.
Jillian has been working in healthcare since 2003 and is still employed in provincial health care initiatives. Her acquired relationship management skills help support our customers, sales and marketing efforts. Their "Two Wongs make a White" farm is situated in Oyama - also known as the "Jewel of the Okanagan" - where they reside with their boys Garrett and Reagan.
