EauVivre Winery & Vineyards

716 Lowe Drive
Cawston, BC

Geologist Dale Wright, who has run his own oil well-drilling firm in Regina since 1984, and his wife, Jeri Estin, an educator, were looking for wine-country retirement property when they discovered in 2007 that the original Herder Winery facility was for sale. (Herder had relocated to a larger winery near Keremeos.)

The Herder property appealed to them, not just because there is a comfortable three-year-old house, but because they could create new business from the existing winery and vineyard (gew├╝rztraminer, pinot noir), along with purchased grapes. Lawrence Herder made the debut vintage before handing over the cellar to winemaker Spencer Kelly, who had worked with Herder for a crush.
