Our focus is in the vineyard where we maintain the vines in a holistic way to produce healthy, clean fruit. This way we can let the wine make itself bringing you pure terroir in a bottle.

When touring our new home and absorbing the responsibility of farmland stewardship, a large granite rock was discovered, perfectly split in half. Local rumours say it was hit by lightning during a spring storm. A reflection of the land – perched halfway up this thermal producing volcanic ridge of a vineyard– it aligns perfectly with our desire to create electric, juicy wines made from healthy, holistically farmed grapes. As a team, Jordan, Tyler, and Ron strive to work harmoniously with nature to express each vineyard in the glass. An exciting exploration of Summerland through grapes.

The spark behind Lightning Rock comes from Jordan Kubek and Tyler Knight, who have been making wine in Summerland  since 2011. Jordan has a certificate in winemaking from Washington State University and is fuelled by her passion – making electric, terrior driven sparkling wine. Jordan and Tyler spent their Canadian winters working harvests in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Chile. Back at their home base in Summerland, they both worked at Okanagan Crush Pad where Jordan was the sparkling winemaker for 7 years.  Tyler has an education in biology and etymology from UBC Okanagan and is a true winegrower. He farms our vineyards and works with Jordan to create electric wines.
