In addition to our core JoieFarm and JoieFarm 'En Famille' wines, we have had the pleasure of working with Vancouver Island artist and designer, Dale Nigel Goble, on a series of labels for our limited release wines that elegantly capture the unique essence of each of our special projects: 2014 Viognier, 2016 Viognier, 2016 Syrah and Chic Fille.
For the past 15 years, Dale Nigel Goble has been creating award-winning multidisciplinary work such as graphic design, illustration, paintings, screen prints, and sculptures. His artwork appears in private and corporate collections around the world, and has been featured in numerous design magazines, newspapers, television, print and digital media. Recent clients include Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the United Nations, and several other wonderful clients both large and small. Dale lives on Vancouver Island in Canada and is currently working on two children's books which will be available across North America in Fall 2019.
This summer, we are proud to offer a new culinary experience on the Naramata Bench: Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique. After 15 years of dedicated winemaking, Heidi has actively spent the summer cooking with her partner JJ Skidmore, Chef Brian Skinner and Lina Caschetto.
The first three weekends of Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique has been a huge success! Deep gratitude to everyone who gave our new concept a try. Our ingredient-driven menu focuses on the food and culture that inspires Heidi in both her wine making and in her kitchen.
