Bizou + Yukon was launched as a direct-to-consumer offer-ing
through the winery’s online store. Okanagan Crush Pad began
shipping orders May 7.
The line kicks off with three wines: Savvy Gris, a blend of
sauvignon blanc and pinot gris; Savvy Franc, a blend of cabernet
sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot; and the Pinkie Rosé, a blend
of varieties from various Okanagan vineyards. On each of the 12
custom-created labels is art depicting the dogs and the adventures
they live daily at The Ranch, the special property they help protect.
Bizou + Yukon wines are available to order online as a mixed
case of 12 (four bottles of each wine) for $275 (including tax and
shipping). Single bottles will be available for sale at a later date,
when the winery is able to re-open to its guests.

a smile to people’s faces. As winery owners we all work very hard to
be taken seriously,” she said. “It’s not an easy gig. We sometimes for-get
that wine is simply about friends, family and simple enjoyment.”
This label promises to be the most fun and lighthearted cre-ation
yet by Okanagan Crush Pad. Expect to see this reflected
in all branded materials and communication channels. After all,

and organic farming principles to The Ranch.
