Owner Reid Jenkins plans to give Adora winery a fresh start with a new name, a new building and new wines. This custom winemaker started in a highway-side facility south of Summerland. When the founding partnership dissolved, that facility was sold and Jenkins relocated the business for three vintages (2007 to 2009) to a packing house south of Oliver while developing a new 1,100-square-metre facility on the outskirts of Summerland.
The new Summerland winery, expected to open in 2010, is about two and a half times larger than Adora’s original winery, both to handle production for its own label, as well as for client wineries. The vineyard at the new winery is to be planted with viognier, riesling and varieties (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier) that will support a sparkling wine program.
