Merging the modern culture with Indigenous history

Indigenous World merges the modern culture with Indigenous history. The Indigenous first peoples of the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys located in British Columbia Canada are the Okanagan Syilx people. They have lived on and protected these lands for thousands of years. Robert Louie and his wife Bernice are descendants of the Syilx people and are connected to the land and its rich history.

The lands have been formed and protected over time with glacial ice, volcanic eruptions and geological events producing some of the best agricultural products in the world. It is from this environment and Indigenous culture that the concept of Indigenous World emerged. Every effort is being made to produce world class products in a respectful way to the environment, lands and its people.

Our Vineyards

We source our grapes from vineyards up and down the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys.  We are able to choose only the highest quality varieties of grapes with a focus on integrity, quality and taste. We pride ourselves in working in partnership with each farmer in his/her respective vineyard. We commend their hard work and can taste the love and energy that they pour into each cluster of grapes.

Indigenous World is also home to a 2.5 acre vineyard that was planted in 2014. Nestled into the ravine below the wine shop, three clones of the muscat grape have been carefully tended and nurtured. This hard work and patience was rewarded in the fall of 2016 when we harvested our very first vintage.

When you taste an Indigenous World wine, you are tasting fruit from the land that has supported the Syilx people for over 10,000 years.
