    Haywire Wines from Baby Bub to Pinot Noir Latest Releases

    Okanagan Crush Pad facilities Haywire wines are made at Okanagan Crush Pad (OCP) in Summerland, BC, and are co-owned by Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie. I have followed Haywire wines since their inception. I like them as they try to be as organic and un-interventionist as possible, letting their wines tell their stories. They make a range of wines; red, white, and bubble for our enjoyment.

      La Grasparossa

      jvb uncorked - - 3 readers - This summer at #wbc14 I learned that lambrusco is really delicious, having shunned it for decades after a taste in the 1970’s of the commonly found, cheap lambruscos that flooded the market, along with bell-bottom jeans and polyester knits. Remember this commercial? A curious piece of history, that is. The ad was cute, but the wine was nothing to write home about.
