Corcelettes Estate Winery

Corcelettes Estate Winery

Corcelettes Estate Winery; located on 150 acres in the pristine Similkameen Valley, blends passion, precision and science to craft expressive, small lot premium wines. Led by Charlie and Jesce Baessler, the skilled team at Corcelettes is committed to creating exceptional wines and experiences. In history the word “Corcelettes” described a royal garden; this has not changed with the team’s continued attention to the land and precision practices in both the vineyard and cellar.

We place greatest care in our viticulture and believe in making our wine on the vine. Cultivating our estate vineyard and working closely with our local growers, no short cuts are ever taken in finding balance between viticulture, our environment, and winemaking. Our first vintage was in 2011, consisting of 200 cases. We currently craft 5500 cases of wine per year, with plans of each future vintage growing in production size.

With 27 planted acres and expanding, we present a growing range of premium wines that showcase the stony, windswept terroir of the Similkameen. Our portfolio includes predominantly Bordeaux varietals, Syrah, and Pinot Noir all crafted from 100% Similkameen grown grapes. There is also a small selection of premium wines from the Micro Lot Series, wines crafted from specially selected grapes available only in limited quantities.

The Similkameen Valley is a rugged, magical place that is the Canadian wine industry’s best kept not-so-secret anymore, and we couldn’t be prouder to have planted our roots here.

Corcelettes was named Top 10 Small Wineries in both the 2018 and 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada, as well at Top 10 overall in Canada and Top 10 BC Wineries 2019.

Corcelettes make very small lot wines by hand that are full of rich texture. Great care is placed on viticulture and they truly make their wine on the vine. Their flagship wine is the Menhir, which is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend. All of the wines from Corcelettes are made from 100% Similkameen Valley grapes, and are full of the fine minerality the Similkameen is famous for.
