Join us as we visit with Painted Rock, an award-winning and stunningly beautiful winery in British Columbia, Canada. You'll meet founder John Skinner and we will do a virtual tasting of 4 wines. Painted Rock began with John and Trish Skinner’s belief that the Okanagan Valley had enormous, largely unrealized, potential. While the area was long known for producing some of the world’s finest fruit, it was the wines produced from the 1980’s “Vinifera Program” that convinced the Skinner’s that the Okanagan would one day be an internationally recognized wine region.

Founder of a spectacular winery

The Son of a Canadian Forces fighter pilot John Skinner spent the majority of his youth in Comox BC.  He embarked on a successful career in the finance industry, retiring from Yorkton Securities in 1998 and later Canaccord Capital in 2009.

He founded Painted Rock in 2005, and today it is the most award-winning winery in British Columbia.
