Grant and Carolyn are excited about the promise their wines are showing and strive to improve every year, constantly growing and listening - to the earth, the grapes, and their customers. They are at 3180 17th Street, in Jordan Station, waiting for you to join them and share a glass of wine. They continued their study of cool climate viticulture and were fortunate to have their son, Garett Westcott, join them in the vineyard and Alain Sutre guide their viticulture practices the next year. Construction on the main building (which features a reclaimed 200-year old timber frame and foundation from a barn several kilometers away) began in the fall of 2013. The tasting room was opened in July 2014 and their daughter, Victoria Westcott, joined the team to lead the customer experience.

Sourced from a block of young vines at Butlers' Grant Vineyard planted in 2016. The Pinot is 100% whole cluster fermented and all wild malolactic fermentation and spends 22 months in oak, all older oak barriques. It's lighter in colour in the glass with a nose of bright, fresh red berries, cassis, subtle herbs, a lovely floral lift, and integrated spices. It's vibrant and floral on the palate with a medley of bright red berries, anise, subtle spices, and tangy acidity on a lifted finish. Quite elegant and enjoyable right now.
