Heidi Noble co-opened JoieFarm in 2003 as an on-farm cooking school and gastronomic guesthouse. A classically trained chef and sommelier, she began making wines for her restaurant friends in Vancouver but farmhouse guests fell in love with them too. Inspired by the classic wines of Europe but crafted for West Coast cuisine and lifestyle, these first offerings continue to be our most popular.
2 x A Noble Blend - the tradition of blending white aromatic varietals dates back centuries in the Alsace region of France. We honour that tradition by using grapes from some of the oldest vineyards in BC. This wine's juicy acidity and vibrant fruit flavours are great accompaniment to seafood or Asian-influenced dishes.
2 x Rosé - JoieFarm was one of the first BC wineries to make dry French-style rosé at a time when all you could find were sweet "blush" wines. Nearly two decades later, it’s still a sure sign of Spring when we release the new vintage - the 2019 edition just came available and is fresh with a delicious “bowl of watermelon and strawberries” taste.
2 x En Famille Reserve Pinot Noir - At its best, cool-climate Pinot Noir is bright, focused, and elegant by nature. In a longer, cool vintage this Pinot Noir is also powerful, complex and incredibly perfumed. Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a clonal selection with the grapes sourced from four select vineyard sites on the Naramata Bench. These vineyards have been chosen for their smaller berried Dijon clones, which have finer tannins and more spicy aromas. Our approach to this wine is vineyard based and, as such, our winemaking process is relatively simple. We employ a clean, straightforward ferment followed by a gentle pressing, and the wine is aged for eight months in select Burgundian barriques. The wine is further aged for twelve months in bottle before release. Winner Silver Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards.
