As a northern country, winemaking in Canada has had its own unique set of challenges. Despite this, Canada boasts many quality wines, with wine production mainly concentrated in Ontario and British Columbia.

Time Family of Wines

“Our family’s vision is to always strive to be dreamers that create amazing, cutting-edge wines to be enjoyed with family and friends, one glass at a time.”—Christa-Lee McWatters, General Manager, Time Family of Wines

The unique terroir of Okanagan Valley

Built within a revitalized historic theatre in downtown Penticton, British-Columbia, Time Family of Wines produce world-class wines that truly showcase the best of the Okanagan. This beautiful region allows complex flavours to develop, giving the wines a rich and authentic Okanagan taste and the winery team has leveraged its long-standing relationships with growers to access the best fruit for their portfolio.

Led by the late founder and wine pionee, Harry McWatters, Time Family of Wines is now owned by Ron and Shelley Mayert who are well positioned to ensure continuity of what the McWatters family has established since many years. “The McWatters’ longstanding reputation is irreplaceable, and we will always honour the legacy that Harry, Christa-Lee, and Darrien have brought to the Canadian wine industry.” remarks Ron Mayert.

Christa-Lee and Darrien McWatters have been chosen among Wine Industry Network’s (WIN) Most Inspiring People of 2021 for their ability to be adaptable and innovative, while paving the way for others. According to Kathleen Wilcox of Wine Industry Network, the sisters “manage to honour their family’s incredible history and legacy in Canadian wine, while fearlessly pushing their brands into the future.”
