Encore Vineyards Ltd, spearheaded by British Columbia’s most renowned wine industry pioneer, Harry McWatters, is offering an ownership opportunity to people interested in becoming a part of a fully-integrated wine company.
Encore’s 60-acre Sundial Vineyard is on the Black Sage Bench in Oliver, featuring premium brands like the McWatters Collection and TIME Estate. Construction of a 25,000-square-foot state-of-the-art wine production facility is underway, making it the sixth in B.C. to have more than a 50,000 case production capability — considered to be the benchmark of a large winery in the region.
Committed to making the project accessible to as many people as possible, the minimum investment is $2,500.
The new production facility is a key contributor to strong revenue projections. As well, the Sundial vineyard produces 250 tons of premium Vinafera varieties annually, and has a diverse winery client base for its grape crop. The new custom production and crush service will be ideal for smaller wineries while providing a secondary source of income. Encore also intends to purchase an additional winery that will be home to a new ultra-premium brand.
Encore’s Board of Directors is headed by McWatters, who is a 47-year veteran of the British Columbia wine industry.
Information seminars will be held throughout B.C. about Encore Vineyards including in Penticton on Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Penticton Ramada Hotel. Guests must RSVP www.encorevineyards.ca.
