Specialising in precise grape management, small batch ferments and the finest French Oak, Little Engine aims for perfection in every bottle. The winery’s portfolio is comprised of Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers, with the latter being produced on a barrel-to-barrel basis.
Little Engine Wines is an essential stop for enthusiasts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The winery’s French Oak program features six different French cooperages with ten resulting styles. Puncheons have also been introduced to produce a more balanced oak element.
Fresh and modern, Little Engine has one of the most elegant tasting rooms on the Naramata Bench. The views from the outdoor patio are stunning too, taking in the surrounding vineyards as well as Okanagan Lake.
The name of the winery was inspired by the famed 1930s folktale that has encouraged generations of children (and grown-ups!) to overcome obstacles and achieve success.
