About Us

Meet the Dickinsons

We began our first steps in 2009 looking at potential sites suitable for growing high quality Riesling in BC. It took the better part of a year, but by the Spring of 2010 Alan and Amy had purchased a 5 acre, partially planted property on a higher elevation, south-facing outflow above Okanagan Falls. Over the next few years, all but the original block of Riesling were replanted to additional Riesling and two small blocks of Pinot Noir. Right out of the gate, the wines from this property proved to be very different from anything in the Okanagan and the style of the minimalist winemaking and holistic farming began to shine through in the glass.

Alan's parents, John and Kirsty joined soon afterwards to help grow and carve out Synchromesh as it is today. Together, we were fortunate to acquire the neighbouring property in 2017. This large parcel brought our total estate property to 107 acres and has provided the opportunity to plant and explore the unique geology and geography of this site.

Synchromesh remains a focused and family run winery with Nigel, our third generation involved now too. We look forward to sharing our family's wines for generations to come.
