About Søren

Ryan McKibbon and Geoffrey Moss

The Philsophy

It started with a simple idea. What if we could showcase wines from our favourite winemakers. Not just from the Okanagan, but from around the world. 

Barrel by barrel, we select the lots that raise the hair on our arms. They have a verve. An electricity. And, most importantly, they have something to say.

The People

We graduated from the same winemaking school, a year apart. We met once or twice. But it wasn’t until we both moved to the Okanagan that we really got to know one another. 

Today, Ryan grows grapes and makes wine. Geoffrey tries to sell the stuff. Talk about the perfect match. 

Ryan McKibbon


Day-to-day, Ryan is the Winemaker at [winery redacted for contractual reasons]. But he’s just at home in the vineyard as the cellar, with extensive experience in organic and biodynamic farming. He previously worked for Phantom Creek, alongside biodynamic trailblazer Olivier Humbrecht MW, and Hidden Bench, one of Niagara’s leading organic producers. In total, he’s worked 14 harvests, including at iconic Pinot Noir producer Crystallum in South Africa and Felton Road, a biodynamic pioneer in New Zealand.
