Meet Dwight Sick, winemaker at Moraine Winery.
There are many reasons why I love the Naramata Bench. It is on this stretch of a road that winds 26 kilometers from Penticton to the village of Naramata, amongst the 40 wineries that reside here - we find Moraine Winery. At only 10 minutes from Penticton, Moraine finds itself in the heart of it all. Here you will find - good wine, a gorgeous lake view and fabulous sunsets.
Meet Dwight Sick, winemaker at Moraine Winery. He’s busy selecting tanks and barrels and blending wine for perfection. Dwight is not a newbie to the valley, or to winemaking. In fact after 15 vintages, this veteran winemaker still considers himself a “student”. Recognizing that all wines begin in the vineyard, Dwight believes Moraine has a unique micro climate affect by the lakes influence and this along with the regime of sustainable practices in their elevated vineyard sites will result in award winning, age-worthy wines.
