Friends & Family Stories: Gaurav

“It actually wasn’t my idea to go into winemaking, it was my dad’s,” says our in-house winemaker, Gaurav Maan, with a smile on his face. Keeping in the family business, Gaurav has been working tirelessly for the past 6 years to bring the best possible wine right here on our Farm & Estate Winery.

Since he was 18 years old, Gaurav has worked alongside master winemaker, Laurent Lafuente, saying the learning curve was steep. The intense learning process has paid off because now he’s manning all of the wine tanks on site with and three additional 5000L tanks coming soon.

Gaurav couldn’t decide which one of the wines are his favourite because he says those wine tanks are like his children, he is constantly with them and taking care of them, and he couldn’t love one child more than another.

Recently, he even received the 2018 All Canadian Wine Championships Fruit Wine of the Year. It was for his delectable 2016 Raspberry Dessert Wine.

Through triumphs and mishaps, Gaurav is always smiling and ready to take on the next challenge.
