Lake Breeze Vineyards

In 1995, Paul and Vereena Moser a Swiss couple who had lived in South Africa for 25 years, bought a 12-acre parcel called Rock Oven Vineyards on the Naramata Bench. The word "vineyard" is typically not used in South Africa, thus we call ourselves "a Naramata Bench Wine Farm".

The winery was built in 1996 and named Lake Breeze for the winds that blow across the bluffs year round.

The first vines on the property were planted in 1985, making them some of the oldest on the Naramata Bench. The mature vines, coupled with a predominantly westerly aspect ensure plenty of sun exposure and ideal ripening conditions.

Lake Breeze was the first winery to plant and make wine from Pinotage, a native South African variety created from a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut. Although production is extremely limited, this remains a wine of which we are extremely proud.

The current owners purchased the property in 2001 and since then have grown the operation from less than 3,000 cases a year to over 10,000.

At Lake Breeze we believe that our wines should be an experience encompassing the property, the people, the vines, the dog, as well as the wines themselves. We try to create a connection to the place that can be experienced each time you open one of our wines – no matter where you might be.
