Blackwood Lane Winery is proof that you can’t throw away tradition if you want to produce world-class wine. Carlos Lee, owner of Blackwood Lane, has an abiding love and respect for the traditional French winemaking practices, and the results are undeniable - love at first sip. But just how does Carlos create magic in a bottle? Quality over quantity.

The keyword is “handcrafted”. Blackwood Lane wines are made with well-grown BC grapes of the Okanagan Valley in the Oliver-Osoyoos area, fine French oak barrels and most importantly, time. Blackwood Lane red wines are aged at least three years before being released. This creates a smooth, well-integrated wine that offers layers of fine flavours and aromas. While the red wines can be cellared for many years, it’s not a necessity as Carlos releases them only when he feels they are ready to drink.

Blackwood Lane wines are deliciously fruit-forward with very fine tannins and are free of harsh chemicals or additives. Since there are no fining agents such as Isinglass and egg whites, our wines are also vegan! World-class wine for all!

Great wines start with great grapes, so we secured the best grapes of the Okanagan Valley in the Oliver-Osoyoos area. This, combined with old fashioned, traditional, proven techniques (without chemicals or mechanical pumps) and uncompromising quality (using only brand new barriques), we create wines that are winning accolades and praise from wine lovers and connoisseurs all over.

Cinco de Mayo celebration at Blackwoatod Lane Winery 2018

While Cinco de Mayo is widely celebrated, many people are not clear as to its significance beyond the fact that it translates from the Spanish to “The 5th of May”.  And while, for most people, that’s all they need to know for an excuse to party, the day actually commemorates a Mexican underdog victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. While perhaps not immediately obvious, the historical significance of the day is actually apropos to Carlos Lee’s Blackwood Lane.
