In 1989, after a working sabbatical in Napa California, a short trip to British Columbia opened a door that couldn’t be closed. Jeff and Niva returned in 1994 with their two young daughters for what was termed “a working holiday”, and were captured by the sun-drenched beauty of the Okanagan Valley. There, Jeff found a place as one of the first university-trained winemakers in the valley. He spearheaded production for Quails’ Gate winery in Kelowna, where his wines were an immediate success, setting new benchmarks for Canadian wine.
