“Coolshanagh” a Gaelic word that translated means “a meeting place of friends”, is the name of Skip and Judy Stothert’s perfectly situated vineyard property on the Naramata Bench overlooking Okanagan Lake.

This soil (studded with limestone and calcium carbonate), slope, drainage, and sunlight, combined with organic farming practices, results in wines that beautifully express a sense of place.

In 2014, renowned terroir specialist Dr. Pedro Parra assessed the soil of Coolshanagh and noted the vineyard’s soil was in the top 15% in the world, comparing it to Meursault.

This comparison inspires the style of Coolshanagh Chardonnay, which has been celebrated with critical acclaim and scores above 90 points since its inaugural vintage. Less than 100 cases of Pinot Noir are also made from estate fruit.

Together, the Coolshanagh wines expresses and reflect the terroir and the diverse soil of Coolshanagh Vineyard.

Coolshanagh produces a small batch Chardonnay (~750 cases), sourced only from estate fruit, and (~75 cases of Pinot Noir). Wines that echo Burgundy were the initial inspiration, however, the ultimate Coolshanagh wine style that emerges specifically expresses and reflects the terroir of the Okanagan Valley and of the diverse soil of Coolshanagh Vineyard.

Skip and Judy Stothert relocated to Naramata in 2003 with a dream to start their own vineyard and a vision to plant only those varietals perfectly aligned with the soil profile of their land.
