Take a look at the calendar below to find out about our upcoming events:
Lunessence Winery & Vineyard honours a commitment to crafting fine wines which showcase the unique terroir of the Okanagan Valley.
They believe in sustainable, environmentally sensitive viticulture, respecting the vineyard as a living and varied ecosystem. Each bottle is a proud expression of the earth it came from.
Lunessence Winery & Vineyard respects nature in all its aspects. Their ecofriendly and sustainable viticulture practices are lead by an integrated grape production system. This is a procedure to which all economical, ecological and toxicological sustainability methods are applied, in order to keep the extent of damage to a minimum and beneath the economic damage threshold.
Both in the vineyard and in the winery classical music reverberates. At Lunessence, it is their belief that exposure to classical music helps produce well-balanced wines.

Anthony Buchanan considers wine on a unique aesthetic level. He appreciates all angles, nuances, and depths.
His love of wine began early in life and he became an Opimian Society member at 26. With his first taste of a Gevrey-Chambertin, Anthony was hooked on Pinot Noir.
He completed the oenology program at Washington State University and moved to the Okanagan. One of his first cellar jobs was at Blue Mountain Vineyards, one of the most celebrated Pinot Noir producers in B.C. His first job as wine maker in 2012 was at Eau Vivre Winery, where Pinot Noir has a celebrated history and Anthony’s pinots took many top honours
Anthony embraces winemaking techniques that are both traditional and progressive without being atavistic. He takes what the grapes give him and delicately shapes them into wine from vine to bottle with a gentle and effective hand. For Anthony Buchanan Wines, single vineyard sites are chosen for being sustainably farmed, well-tended, and managed with the same gentle hand as he uses to make his wines.
Anthony values Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir wines that are elegant, delicious, and worthy of timelessness. He creates wines that are rich, expressive, and unique to each vineyard site. Without using a preconceived template, his gentle winemaking seeks to reveal the beauty of the land for the natural uniqueness that it is, without a trace of artifice.
Join us for a tasting of those wonderful Pinots!
