Stephen Carter, Owner
Stephen Carter had a dream for a quieter, peaceful life. After a successful landscaping career serving the Shaughnessy area, all signs pointed to the Okanagan to cultivate on his own land. He bought Hawk's Vineyard in 2011 with a vision to turn it into a unique visitor and hospitality centre. Stephen's passion and time are often spent working to restore the grand, historic log cabin home on the property to its classic splendour.
