Experience the wine and grape together

Our grape stomping crew

Our first harvest at Burnt Grass Vineyards, September 12th 2021 We had a wonderful day with great friends. Ilona and Melanie from Little America Travel helped with the picking. We even stomped the grapes the old fashioned way of wine making.

The harvest brunch was prepared by Deb and was amazing. Home made hearty soups, petite sandwiches, fresh fruit and of course wine. we even set up a tasting of wines and the grapes they came from. you sampled a grape then tasted the wine of the same variety. 

Why “Burnt Grass” vineyards?

Why such an unusual name? It all started way back in 2017. Deb and I were looking for a log home as a summer house for our retirement. We searched high and low through out the Naramata and Skaha Lake area, but nothing called to us. One weekend we were with a realtor and had exhausted all the Log home listing when the realtor suggested we look at a piece of land. Deb and I really were not into building but said “what the heck, maybe the universe has something different in mind for us.”

We stopped at the base of the lot to take a peek. We decided to climb to the top of the lot to check out the view. Deb had gone ahead of me up the weed infested hill. As I made my way up the hill, I looked up, Deb had stopped climbing and was looking back at me. I looked into Debs eyes and knew at that instant that we were building. Deb smiled and said, “I am so sorry love; we are going to build”. We both fell instantly in love with the property. The lot was purchased that day. A few weeks later we retuned to the Okanagan to visit the lot and remind our selves what we had done. While at the lot a construction worker approached us and asked if we knew who owned this property. With a big smile Deb replied, “I do as of today”. The construction worker went on to say that he and his crew were installing new water mains for the city and could he use the lot to store the pipes as there was no other place close by where they could store them. Deb agreed since we knew it would be a few months before we were ready to break ground.

A few weeks go by when Deb gets a call from the construction company “I am so sorry miss Burkhardt, but the lot caught fire. The fire is out but much of the lot is burned”. Apparently one of the water main workers was welding a pipe (why on earth you would weld a pipe on a lot full of dry grass evades me) the hillside caught fire and spread rapidly. Since the fire main had been turned off to be replaced there was no water to put the fire out. Our lovely new neighbours had rushed over with the garden hoses in hand to help, luckily the residential water was still on. Thanks to the quick thinking of the construction supervisor who ran up the hill and grabbed a near bye excavator, he was able to make a trench around the fire and contain it from growing. By then the fire truck arrived and used what water they carried in the truck to finish off the smoldering remains. When we returned a few days later sure enough about half the lot had burned. Now when we meet new people in the neighborhood all we have to say is “We own the lot that caught fire” and everyone knows exactly where we live 

​So, their you have it, how “Burnt Grass vineyards” came to be. ​

Our logo

We enlisted the help for from our daughter and granddaughter who came up with what we think is the perfect Logo--The Phoenix, a mythical creature who rises from the ashes and builds a new future. We loved the idea and the way they shaped the Phoenix into a wine glass.

 A glass of wine, a star lite night, and new friends by the campfire make for a perfect night. 

(weather permitting) 

 Sit back and enjoy the view of our universe as the stars come out. The remoteness of Naramata  and Burnt Grass Vineyards gives you a ​spectacular night sky. 

 What better way to close out a day than a nice glass of wine, a warm crackling fire, conversing with your new friends, and learn about the great Okanagan valley. 

 Many new experiences are just waiting to be explored
