Canada's Most Acclaimed Wine

In 1997, Oculus was a vision of what the Okanagan Valley could be. It was the absolute conviction that with an uncompromising focus on quality in the vineyard and winery, this land was capable of producing one of the greatest wines of the world.

2020 Oculus

A Vintage like no Other

Our 2020 vintage represents the best vintage produced from one of the finest harvests Okanagan Valley has experienced. The fruit for this Bordeaux-style wine is farmed from small parcels in our Osoyoos estate vineyards, gravity-filled into custom French oak fermenters, followed by aging in small French oak barrels for seventeen months.

The 2020 Oculus is a remarkable wine; balanced, nuanced, and powerful. Showcasing the dense red and dark fruit and velvety tannins that Border Vista vineyard is known for, the 23rd vintage of this wine is among the best we have produced.

Since 1997

The result of meticulous selection in the vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine.


The quantity of the 2020 wines will be significantly lower than recent vintages but the quality will be among the best in this decade.

90% Border Vista Vineyard, Osoyoos

Our warmest and smallest southern vineyard with an elevation of 330m-360m on the eastern side facing west in Osoyoos, kilometres away from the Washington State border. The vines in Border Vista are full of wild vigour with gravel-free, loamy sands producing rich full-bodied wines.

10% Jagged Rock Vineyard, Black Sage Bench, Oliver

On the Black Sage Bench tucked alongside a secluded valley protected by a craggy range lies Jagged Rock. At 1400 feet elevation, this estate vineyard is the perfect location for harnessing the greatness of the terrain.

Wine Profile

This Merlot-dominant blend imparts rich flavours of both red and blue fruits. The Cabernet Franc provides a subtle herbaceous undertone that enriches the wine’s complexity, while the Cabernet Sauvignon brings balance supporting length on the palate. A touch of Petit Verdot contributes to the wine’s structural composition.
