We are Matthew SherLOCK and Ross HackWORTH. We are also our wonderful seasonal and part time employees who get us through the crazy times.
Honest, single vineyard wines of time and place - priced for everyday consumption.
Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley British Columbia Canada. 1060 Poplar Grove Road.
Lock & Worth Winery shares a tasting room with Poplar Grove Cheese. When you visit you can taste both our wines and Poplar Groves artisanal cheeses together. You can find the Poplar Grove Cheese site here http://www.poplargrovecheese.ca/
We strongly believe that one should be able to drink high quality, single vineyard (non-commodity), small production wines that are priced reasonably from British Columbia. We plan to be around 20 years from now, not by becoming a large company but by creating a sustainable business within our community. For us part of that means making wines that always over deliver.
We spend all of our money on our wines, not our marketing. We eschew heavy bottles, advertising and fancy labels. In the winery we use old French Oak (not expensive) and have very little in the way of technology (still use basket presses).
We are also not part of any marketing groups nor do we submit wines to award or trade shows – all of which cost money. Every penny we save goes toward the quality of our wines and to keeping their prices stable. We hope you enjoy.
