The ‘Deep Roots’ in question are the Hardman family’s 100+ years of experience farming the Naramata Bench. As many as four generations of family members have toiled land locally!
The Hardman family sold grapes to other wineries for years before making the decision to create their own winery. All vineyard work is still done by hand at the the winery’s two properties on the Bench, enabling complete control from soil to bottle.
And clearly the work has paid off, with Deep Roots winning numerous industry awards year after year.
The understated tasting room opened in 2014 and features a wonderful lakeview patio. At the current time, all tastings are held outside so guests can enjoy the spectacular views alongside Deep Roots’ terroir-driven wines.
Be sure to say hello to Smokey and Kenya, the resident winery dogs!
