Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving.

Founded by David and Cynthia Enns who left high-flying jobs in finance to pursue a love for winemaking, Laughing Stock Vineyards was founded in 2003 on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley. The winery takes its name from the reaction of some of their former colleagues and acquaintances when the couple decided to quit their stable careers for the uncertainties of the winemaking industry.

David began crafting small batch wines from top quality Washington State grapes in 2001 and learned the ropes by apprenticing with some of Okanagan’s leading winemakers. Over the last couple of decades David and Cynthia have built a solid reputation for award-winning wines which are highly-sought after in British Columbia and beyond.

Their Blind Trust cuvee is a rich and powerful Bordeaux-style blend featuring Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and a dash of Petit Verdot. In the finance world the executors of a blind trust have full control over the assets included. In the same way, the Enns have created this wine using the finest of ingredients and 15 months of maturation in French oak barrels. The result is a complex and sophisticated blend which can be enjoyed now alongside hearty red meat dishes or held for another 8 years or so in the cellar.
