The Okanagan’s first honey winery, Meadow Vista was established by business entrepreneur Judith Barta. A native of Coburg, Ontario, where she started a boat cleaning business when she was 19, Barta’s interest in wine began when she moved west to ski and began working in the wine bar at the Banff Springs Hotel.
Subsequently, she has worked with wineries and wine agencies, done wine consulting, become a massage therapist, run a spa and reopened the boat cleaning business in the Okanagan. Seeking to differentiate herself from the Okanagan’s many grape wineries, Barta opened an organic meadery. Until she opens her own facility next year, she operates from the Kalala winery
