Winemaker Sandy Leier is deeply rooted in the Okanagan wine region that she proudly calls home. Born in Vancouver and raised in Kelowna, Sandy has spent over 15 years working on the Andrew Peller Ltd. winemaking team and has been the winemaker for Sandhill for the last four years. “I love exploring the unique properties and diverse microclimates of each of Sandhill’s vineyard sites and celebrating those differences in the wines. The single vineyard and single block wines in the Small Lots portfolio give us this window into the terroir of a range of excellent growing sites within our region,” explains Leier. “I am truly honoured to be part of Sandhill’s inimitable legacy as a pioneering Okanagan winery.” Leier lives and breathes the quintessential Okanagan lifestyle with her family. Her favourite pastimes include biking and hiking the valley’s extensive trail systems and snowboarding at Big White with her family.
