Stop #2:  Black Market Wine Co.

Kaleden, BC

About Black Market Wine Co: For many years while still living in Calgary, Rob and Michelle would travel to the Okanagan in search of the small boutique wines that weren’t available in the Alberta market. Inevitably, they would fill their car with cases and cases of amazing wines…and “smuggle” them back across the border to share with family and friends. They became known as the Wine Black Marketeers, so when they set up their own winery, choosing the name was easy!

About Rob Hammersley: Rob Hammersley is the owner, winemaker and viticulturist at Black Market. His goal is to create small batch, hand crafted wines made from Kaleden grapes or from selected partners in the south Okanagan.
