This Richmond winery, located on the south bank of the Fraser River, prides itself as a producer of Old World-style wines, along with fruit wines and icewines. Taiwan-born Tony Ouyang, who operates stores selling health supplements in metro Vancouver, says he has dreamed of making wine since he was a youth.
For a decade, he helped House of Rose export its wines to Asia. He even considered buying that Kelowna winery, but, with a burgeoning business and a family in Vancouver, Ouyang chose to open his own winery in Richmond.
Without a vineyard of its own, Isabella operates under a commercial licence and imports some of its wine in bulk from the United States. The portfolio is extensive, ranging from dry table wines to dessert wines, fruit wines and icewines.
