In Loving Memory
It is with deep sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of our pioneering winemaker, Adrian Baker. Adrian left this world peacefully, surrounded by his family, on May 31st, 2021 after enduring a battle with ALS.
His incredible passion for creating fine wines, his dream of designing and building a state-of-the-art vineyard and winery and his quest for new opportunities is what brought Adrian, his wife Patricia and their young family of four children to the Okanagan Valley from New Zealand in 2011. His visions helped build the foundations on which we grow and helped to carve the path that we venture along today. Adrian’s passing is an immense loss to O’Rourke Family Vineyards and this loss will also be felt globally in the industry.
His legacy and memory will live on through the wines that he inspired that we continue to create each year.
Winemaker, Peak Cellars
