A Canadian producer, the wine's name, Osoyoos Larose, reflects the partners' roots in France and Canada. Osoyoos refers to the location of the vineyards in the Okanagan Valley, on the mountain slopes above Lake Osoyoos.
The land is situated on the western bench, overlooking Lake Osoyoos, a slim lake that runs north and south on the valley floor. It boasts plentiful sunlight, minimal rainfall and excellent drainage, with proximity to the lake providing cooler temperatures in the evening. The sloping character of the site reduces the intensity of the sunlight, promoting excellent photosynthesis for the vines and enhancing the maturation of the fruit's tannins and colour. Pascal Madevon is both vineyard manager and winemaker for Osoyoos Larose.
