Philosophies and Practices

Meritage Viticulture Services has a great understanding of the unique needs of the Okanagan grape growing regions.  We believe that balanced vines are crucial to optimize the distinguishing flavours of the wines they create.  We strive to use the natural properties of the Okanagan soils and climate using the most progressive viticulture practices while recognizing that vineyards are an integrated part of our communities.

Part of this process is providing a service that is efficient, accurate and tailored to each individual site.  To attain this we create a professional enthusiastic team to ensure that growers are offered a higher standard of viticulture services.  We believe that knowledge and passion for viticulture help create the visceral feel for vines that is needed in order to deliver services that are site specific and performed in a timely and efficient manner.  The experience, knowledge passion and commitment of the team is reflected in the  quality of the work.

Our  philosophy is one that emphasizes the importance of creating a family with those we work with. Through communication we strive to achieve a fun, enriching and fulfilling experience for both our clients and our team.  Good relationships are the foundation of creating excellence.
