Tightrope Winery was born out of a recognition that balance is the ultimate goal, both in wine & in life!
After growing up in Southern Ontario Graham trekked across the country and spent a few years enjoying the outdoor life that Whistler, B.C. has to offer by skiing, mountain biking, playing rugby, and meeting his future wife carving the snowy slopes and sipping fine wines. Having grown up in British Columbia Lyndsay has been aware of the fine grape growing conditions the Okanagan Valley has to offer since the onset of her own wine passion. Once the couple had their first child they decided that the environment of the Okanagan would be ideal for cultivating a family as well as their dream of a winery. Initiating a formal education on the subject of how to best cultivate the vines that produce the wines they love, they discovered that the vineyard life and winemaking were passions that they shared and wished to further pursue in their life together.
Tasting Notes ... On the nose there are aromas of orange blossom, apricot and green apple. The palate has flavours of pink grapefruit, nectarine, and mandarin orange with a touch of minerality, leading to a crisp, lingering finish.
