Located in the Okanagan, The Hatch winery has earned a rep around their eccentric wines and style since opening in 2015. The AntiSocial team had the opportunity to experience the winery firsthand on a recent business trip to Kelowna.
They call themselves a “tasting emporium”, this winery delivers on that title with a warm and rustic room, styled and decorated to feel like an outpost far from civilization. The wines are inviting and whimsical, a perfect match for their unique label art from Vancouver artist Paul Morstad.
After shooting the HopScotch Festival, the AntiSocial team was looking to relax with an authentic Okanagan Valley wine experience. Scott McKay, Project Manager, describes the endeavour as nothing short of amazing.
“The Hatch is the supplier of the red and white house wine served at Hook Seabar, a local favourite in Vancouver. Their artist Paul Morstad also painted the mural within Hook’s restaurant space. We wanted to check them out and enjoy a little wine tasting of our own.”
The Hatch embodies something which is vital to us at AntiSocial: Artistic inspiration and collaboration. The Hatch describes themselves as a “the direct confluence of all our favourite arts; the liquid arts, the visual arts and the living arts” and we couldn’t agree more.
“Grayson Riordon from The Hatch was so friendly and hospitable, he provided our team with a VIP tasting experience. We wanted to have little fun while on site and captured some video of our tasting experience. This included the opportunity to fly one of our DJI Mavic drones for some aerial footage of the vineyard. This let us capture and share the beautiful views of their estate staff and vistors won’t usually see.
We’ve created a little promo video especially for The Hatch as a thank you for being so great to us.” – Scott McKay
Thanks, The Hatch. We’ll keep enjoying your house wine at Hook Seabar until we can visit again! Andi f you ever find yourself driving through Kelowna’s scenic back roads, do yourself a favour and stop at The Hatch for a tasting.
