A boutique winery located on the Reed Creek alluvial Fan at the North end of the Benches of the Golden Mile
Fairview Cellars is known for some of the Okanagan’s best big bold red wines. Notable Bordeaux varietals are prevalent here with small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner to round out the portfolio.
Fairview Cellars is the culmination of a life long quest of Bill Eggert’s to own and operate his own winery. The 10 acre property located adjacent to the first green of the Fairview Mountain Golf Course was purchased by Bill in 1989. After development of the water system the vineyard was started in 1993. The first commercial vintage was produced from the 1997 crop. Half the property was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc and Merlot were planted in equal parts to fill out the property. One row of Syrah and one row of Petit Verdot were added later, and Sauvignon Blanc was planted on a lower terraced bench close to the first green in 2007.

With Danielle’s thirst for knowledge of all things wine, she will be the perfect apprentice to help shape the future of Fairview Cellars.
