Sperling Vineyards

A Look at the Past

Sperling Vineyards, in Kelowna, BC, has been four generations in the making:

  • 1860s – land is cleared, settled and farm established by Giovanni & Rosa Casorso
  • 1920s – vines are planted and vineyard established by N. Peter Casorso
  • 1930 to today – commercial wine and table grape production by Peter Casorso
  • 1978 – Riesling Weiss Family cl 21 established by Bert & Velma Sperling.
  • 1980s – new plantings focus on vinifera varieties, especially Pinot varieties
  • 2008 – family wine label and wine-making established
  • 2015 – organic certification pursued 

Current History

Sperling Vineyards was created through the vision of internationally renowned wine-maker Ann Sperling & her husband, wine-maker and consultant, Peter Gamble. When Ann’s father, Bert Sperling, was hoping to retire in 2008, the planning began. The desire to keep the historic 1929 family vineyard operational, and having always dreamed of crafting wines from this beautiful site, set the winery into motion. Sperling Vineyards is BC’s oldest, continuously operated vineyard and has been owned by the same family throughout this important history.  2016 marks the second year in the process of organic certification with ProCert Organics.

Partnering with her sister Susan & husband Paul Richardson in 2008, and recruiting niece Jill & husband Rickard Branby (vineyard manager & assistant wine-maker,) Sperling Vineyards has shown its true character and terroir over the past eight vintages. Producing award-winning wines, year after year.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master.
