Bordertown Vineyards And Estate Winery
At Bordertown Vineyards And Estate Winery, you’ll find the Gills, a fifth-generation farming family working a 35-acre vineyard that produces award-inning wines.
For Mohan Gill, the opening of Bordertown in May, 2015 was the culmination of a lifetime dream.Mohan and his family built their reputation as growers, supplying some of the Okanagan’s best fruit to a select few wineries and winemakers. Their vineyards are some of the most highly regarded in British Columbia.
Bordertown Vineyards and Estate Winery has 100 acres of vineyards. The Osoyoos vineyard grows Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat, Gewürztraminer and Viognier and Pinot Gris. Mohan also has Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and a young block of Grüner Veltliner. The Peachland vineyard, a cooler terroir, is planted primarily in white varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Riesling but also includes Pinot Noir.
Renowned for integrity, attention to detail and impeccable farming skills, it’s Mohan’s passion for quality coupled with their experience and familiarity with the land we farm that sets us apart from the rest of the other wineries.
Mohan took his passion for wine, decided to follow his heritage – and turned his dream into a reality by building a family-owned and operated winery. Over the years, Mohan talked about starting a wine brand of his own and in the fall of 2013, those conversations became a reality with the harvest of the first grapes destined for Bordertown Estate Winery and Vineyards.
