Destination Winery celebrates a milestone occasion with an evening, tasting room specials, a summer picnic program and a summer music series.

OLIVER, British Columbia (June 27, 2022) – The winemaking team of Domains of Phantom Creekthe renowned destination winery in the Okanagan Valley, is thrilled to announce the 25e anniversary of their award-winning Phantom Creek Winery, plus a host of events and exclusive offers to celebrate the occasion. Established in 1996 by pioneering winemaker Richard Cleave, the Phantom Creek Vineyard is consistently recognized for producing some of the finest red wines in Canada, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Located on the lower terrace of the southwest-facing Black Sage Bench, the Phantom Creek Vineyard is perched slightly above the valley floor, ensuring full access to the warm afternoon sun. The vineyard’s well-drained sandy soils are the result of waterways that have slowly deposited nutrient-rich sediments over thousands of years. Wines from this eight-acre site have won more than 85 awards in recent history.

“Phantom Creek Vineyard has always been planted with the goal of producing the highest quality fruit possible, and we are proud to continue that tradition today at Phantom Creek Estates,” said Mark Beringer, director of winemaking at Phantom. Creek Estates. “The wines we make from Phantom Creek Vineyard are our most notable because we take a hands-on approach from time spent caring for the terroir to hand-picking fruit to barrel-fermenting each block. Phantom Creek Vineyard produces interesting and remarkable wines from its distinctive sandy soil, and we are thrilled to celebrate 25 years of its value in the winemaking history of the Okanagan Valley.

To celebrate the 25e anniversary of Phantom Creek Vineyards, the winery is hosting a series of celebratory events that launched in May this year and will run through September, including a monthly dinner series focused on Phantom Creek Vineyard in the Red Ferment Room de la cave held on the last Wednesday and Thursday of each month.
