Our Winery's Background

The Founders - Tinhorn Creek Vineyards

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards was founded by Kenn and Sandra Oldfield and Bob and Barb Shaunessy in 1993 with a focus on growing the best grapes, making great wine, and having fun whenever we can.

 

What started with a couple of barrels in the basement of a house and a few acres of vines has grown into a thriving winery; attracting a group of talented people committed to making outstanding wines in the south Okanagan.

The founding families’ vision continues to live on in every aspect of Tinhorn Creek today. We hold the same values close to our hearts; to be responsible stewards for the land, our people, our community and the future. The strength of our team is what got us here, and it’s that same team who lead this next leg of the journey. Through our ongoing commitment to that original vision we pay homage to our roots and the ideals on which Tinhorn Creek was built.

Here’s too many more decades of growing the best grapes, making great wines to share with family and friends, and enjoying the trip along the way.
