About Cedar Creek Estate Winery

Purchased in 1986, Cedar Creek released its first wines in 1987 and was one of the first eight pioneering wineries of B.C. With four generations of agricultural heritage and more than three decades of experience, Cedar Creek has pursued perfection and produced some of the Okanagan Valley's best wines resulting in being twice recognized as "Canada's Winery of the Year."

About Taylor Whelan
Taylor is a B.C native. Born and raised in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, he later migrated to Victoria for an undergraduate degree in Biology. Fisheries science turned out to be less swimming with whales and more statistics. So, Taylor pursued his other passion, winemaking. After completing a post-graduate diploma in Oenology and Viticulture from Brock University in Ontario, Taylor worked in Niagra, Ontario as well as for world class premium wineries in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, in McLaren Vale, Australia and in Piper's River, Tasmania. Taylor's passion for cool climate grape growing and winemaking brought him to Cedar Creek for harvest in 2011, and he was hired permanently as Assistant Winemaker in 2012. Taylor's goal is working with Cedar Creek's viticulturalists and vineyard managers to continue to improve the quality of fruit grown in the vineyard, and to build a strong and passionate winemaking team who can translate those premium grapes into premium, terroir driven wines, while pushing the boundaries of the British Columbia wine industry.
