Bobby has lived all of his life in West Kelowna, learning all of the different aspects of orchard and vineyard operations from his father. At 15, he was managing the family’s cherry production.He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration at Okanagan College with a specialty in Management, selecting courses that would help him learn to manage a winery. He received his Wine Sales and Winery Assistant certificates. He also took various accounting and equipment-operator courses to help him in the day-to-day operations. One course project was to design a functional winery, including the building with wine shop, tanks, press and pumps, as well as to outline a plan to plant the vineyards.After receiving his BBA, Bobby, his father, and sister Christina created the design for Volcanic Hills, selecting the site of one of their apple orchards on Boucherie Road for their building, which has one of the largest wine shops in BC.In 2009, Bobby went to India to marry Harpreet Gidda and returned with her to BC open the winery in 2010. A year later, they traveled to the Napa Valley to tour the local wineries and further develop their wine knowledge.

At Volcanic Hills Winery they believe in making wine with minimal interference and low-impact techniques, to showcase varietal characteristics through their sustainable grape-growing practices. They also try to be creative in making unique and unusual blends. Their wine has won many awards, including the Magma Red taking home DOUBLE GOLD at the All Canadian Wine Championships. Their wines are known for distinct quality and purity of fruit.

The 15,000-square-foot winery is on the southeastern slope of a 60-million-year-old dormant volcano, Boucherie Mountain, which inspired the name Volcanic Hills. The vineyards are located on volcanic soils, clay, ash, and silt, that are rich, fertile, and impart a distinct mineral notes to their wines. Continuing with volcano lingo is their medium-bodied red blend called “Magma”, and “Eruption”. The names were spawned with help from customers filling out an in-house ballot.

This is your chance to relax, and indulge in some excellent wine pairings!

All ticket holders will receive 10% off of the ENTIRE liquor store after the event!
