This virtual winery operates through the licence of Township 7 Vineyards & Winery where Bradley Cooper is winemaker. Cooper is a one-time photo-journalist who became a restaurant server, learned about wine in that career, and started working in an Okanagan wine shop in 1997.
He progressed to winemaker through courses and hands-on experience in New Zealand, Washington and Ontario before joining Stag’s Hollow in 2003 and then Township 7. Black Cloud emerged from his experience as consulting winemaker for an Okanagan Falls winery project that collapsed financially. Cooper took some of his fees in 2006 pinot noir wine and bought additional inventory to begin marketing the Black Cloud label. His 2008 and 2009 pinot noir is made with purchased grapes.
Cooper and Daum, his wife, are looking for partners to give Black Cloud its own vineyard and winery.
