JOHN AND VIRGINIA WEBER both grew up in Southern Saskatchewan. Virginia worked as a nurse and John taught High School. Life settled and things were good until they met the Similkameen Valley in 2001.
The desire to try something new, their love of wine and the beauty of the Similkameen convinced them to purchase a vineyard and move from Saskatchewan to Cawston. They quickly fell in love with the area and its burgeoning wine industry.
Virginia and John have two sons Jack and Nate. They share their house with a ridiculously adorable Havanese dog named Poppy and an enigmatic cat named Rosie, who all look forward to welcoming you to Orofino!
Orofino has over 19 years of experience with making wines in the Similkameen and have made wine from all of the distinct and unique micro-terroirs throughout the valley. They have an intimate relationship with each of their distinct subregions here in the Valley – from the hot hot heat of the bench vineyards, to the heavy-soiled bottomland sites, to the coolness of the high  elevation Olalla Gap. The knowledge helps them craft wines that celebrate these extraordinary vineyards. Exploration of the  valley and creating wines of place have been the heartbeat of Orofino from the beginning.
