Eliana Bray, Executive Manager
Eliana is very passionate about the wine industry: she has toured extensively through the local wine regions and loves to learn about the terroir of each micro-climate and how it is translated by each winery. A Certified Sommelier, she hopes to add a global focus perspective with her enrolment in the WSET Diploma Level 4 and is excited to be joining the Roche Wines team.
Aaron Schadeck, Vineyard Manager
Aaron is our hardworking Vineyard Manager who nurtures and tends to our organic grapes with patience and care. He holds a diploma in Viticulture from UBC Okanagan and when he’s not caring for and farming 21 acres of organic vines with his team, he’s enjoying the local Crossfit scene.
Angie first caught the wine bug 15 years ago while visiting the Okanagan during the Summer Wine Festival. Since then she has relocated and has completed her WSET Level 3 and is currently working on her Italian Wine Scholar course through the Wine Scholar Guild. When she isn't working or studying about wine, she is running her own Interior Design company.
Joining us this season from Montreal is a wine enthusiast named Spencer. When he isn’t in the cellar, vineyard, or tasting room, this young barista is checking out the local coffee scene and BC wineries. Spencer has his WSET level 2 and plans to take his level 3.
Bacchus, Head Supervisor
Hailing from France, Bacchus is enjoying his 12th harvest. When he’s not keeping an eye on things at the winery, he’s checking on his family, digging holes, and getting thoroughly immersed in his work aka terroir.
