Saxon Winery forms partnership with Bottega Wine Studio

Summerland winery enters agreement with West Kelowna wine maker

Saxon Winery of Summerland has formed a partnership with Bottega Wine Studio also know as Seven Directions Wines, who until recently made their wines in West Kelowna.

Bottega Wine Studio will begin producing their award-winning wine brand Seven Directions Wine and Bottega Wines at Saxon Winery this coming vintage, launching them under Saxon’s license from 2019.

“This exciting partnership offers us the flexibility and growth potential to leverage our brands and to significantly increase production as well as providing us with a tasting room facility for our wines,” said Daniel Bontorin, winemaker for Volcanic Hills and Bordertown wineries and co owner and winemaker for Bottega Wine Studio with Kristine Witkowski.

Paul and Jayne Graydon, co-owners of Saxon Winery said by adding the Bottega and Seven Directions brands to its portfolio of its own wines made under the stewardship of winemaker Tom DiBello, Saxon can nearly double revenues from 2019 onwards and at the same time to build out the production facility to accommodate an increase in production to approximately 4,000 cases per year.
