 “We believe that what is in the bottle is more than just wine; it is a place and time; a snapshot of the vineyard. We invite you to join us, as we pursue our dream.”

Mirabel Vineyards was founded through Doug and Dawn’s shared love of travel, and the belief that the creation and sharing of wonderful food and incredible wine is one of life’s greatest joys.

We were extremely lucky they chose us to update their photographic library and introduced us to some of the best wines we’ve tasted in the Okanagan Valley.
