Who We Are
Stoneboat is family owned and operated. Our hands guide the entire winegrowing cycle:
we walk the vineyards daily, oversee the vines to harvest, and pick the fruit by hand in small bins.
William Adams - Winemaker
Bill began his winemaking career in Ontario where he completed a three year wine making program at Niagra College. Working under veteran winemaker David Hojnoski at Palatine Hills Estate Winery, Bill learned the fun side of winemaking and and developed impeccable winemaking practices.
A visit to experience the Okanagan wine region in 2006 kept Bill here ever since. During his four years working with Pascal Madevon, classically french viticulurist and winemaker, at Osoyoos LaRose, he met Stoneboat’s Jay Martiniuk and our friendship with Bill began.
Bill joined Stoneboat afer a year as cellar master at Blue Mountain Vineyard & Cellars. His sensitive approach to winemaking, and his experience with Pinot varieties in particular, make him the perfect match for Stoneboat’s approach to honest, expressive wines.
Levi Gogolinski - General Manager
Levi joined the team in early 2018. After spending considerable time in the south Okanagan during the previous few summers, she made the decision to trade the hustle of downtown Vancouver for the beautiful south Okanagan.
With a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, a background in beverage sales, and a love of BC wine, this was the perfect fit to combine passion and experience.
