I do not work for Joie Farm nor do I personally know the winemakers nor do I own any shares in their winery. But these hand-crafted BC wines are some of the most popular and are usually only found in private wine stores and in fine restaurants. The winery is located in Naramata in the Okanagan, just north-east of Penticton. Their wines are exuberant in fruit and well balanced and tasty. They often sell-out very quickly at wine stores. I have tried all of the ones listed except for the new Pinot Blanc. The Noble Blend is a blend of aromatic whites similar to Edelzwicker blends from Alsace. You have to order buy the case but it can be a mix of any wines you want that are listed below. If you like flavour in a locally produced wine, Joie won't disappoint.
