THE STORY OF THE SCHALES FAMILY... one that has been etched out of tradition and flavored with passion. It is the story of a love affair that began in 1783 when Christian Schales planted his first grapes in the small Rheinhessen Village of Dalsheim. And today, 8 generations later, the story continues in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Armed with generations of winemaking and grape growing experience behind them and his grandfather’s winepress, Bernd and Stefanie Schales left Germany in search of a new adventure and a new chapter for their next generation.

Welcome to 238 years of winemaking history. 
A long tradition meets an open-minded view forward in our family owned and operated winery.
Craftsmanship and knowledge meet true hard work. Since 1783 our ancestors have been growing grapes and making wine, since 2003 Bernd and Stefanie do so in the Okanagan Valley.
When it comes to the quality of our wines- we make no compromises. From cultivation, to making the wine and bottling - we carry out every step of our production. Always with focus on quality.
Our Vineyards help to preserve the unique agriculture land in the Okanagan which 8th Generation is proud to be part of.
