We present Road 13’s wines in three distinct tiers: a white blend, a red blend, and a rose called “Honest John”, a core series of red and white wines under the Road 13 name, and a premium tier of small lot varietals and blends under the Jackpot designation. Our motto, "It's All About the Dirt," reflects our belief that great wines start in the vineyard.
Our blended red, white, and rose wines are a tribute to Honest John Oliver, the BC Premier from 1918–1927. Honest John epitomized British Columbians’pioneering values: hard work, self-reliance, dependability and neighbourliness. His greatest achievement was the construction of the irrigation canal that transformed the (Golden Mile) South Okanagan and surrounding areas into outstanding farmland.
Our Road 13 core series include many unique single varietal wines and blends. We take pride in selecting premium grapes for each and every bottle. Road 13 wines express the special character of the South Okanagan’s renowned Golden Mile.
Southern BC is home to hundreds of old gold mines with names that acknowledge the region's past exploration. One, called Jackpot, inspired us. Evoking the joy of winning a hard-earned prize, it made a fitting title for our top wines - the reward for our hard work in the vineyard and cellar.
