He firmly believes he has the job he was born to do!
Join us this week for the Indigenous Business Profile as we chat with Justin Hall – Winemaker at Nk’Mip
A proud member of the Osoyoos Indian band, Justin works with Randy Picton to craft the award-winning wines of Nk’Mip Cellars. To learn the intricacies of a large winery and the many roles and responsibilities that go into the wine-making process, Justin travelled to West Australia to work the crush at Goundrey
Justin returned to Nk’Mip Cellars after earning a post-graduate diploma in Enology and Viticulture from New Zealand’s Lincoln University, and assumed responsibility as Assistant Winemaker. He has since been promoted to Winemaker.
Justin says he loves how the wine industry has the ability to bring people closer together, families and friends, to sit down over a good glass of wine. He says today’s world really needs that connection and those strong relationships.
