Ross Baker is the new winemaker at West Kelowna’s Quails’ Gate Winery.
Baker, a Kelowna native, joined the company’s winemaking team in 2013 and learned under Nikki Callaway to prepare for the role.
“Ross has been part of the Quails’ Gate family for many years,” CEO Tony Stewart said in a press release, “and with his intimate knowledge of our vineyards and wine styles is the perfect candidate to maintain the consistency and quality of our wines.”
Stewart earned a bachelor of science degree in win at University of British Columbia Okanagan, and he has worked in New Zealand and at Red Rooster and Kettle Valley wineries in B.C.
Quails’ Gate also announced that Kailee Frasch, who started at the winery two years ago, is its new oenologist.
