Congratulations Devon Villard

We’re thrilled to announce the promotion of Devon Villard to Assistant Winemaker. Originally hailing from Ontario cottage country, Devon’s journey to winemaking has not followed the standard script. He joined Township 7 three years ago, first as our Naramata Tasting Room Manager and then transitioning to Cellarhand to learn the craft of winemaking.  With a multifaceted background in pro snowboarding, rock climbing, photography and film, his perspective on making a good wine is like that of making a good movie; requiring a lot of hard work and just the right balance of science and creativity.  Along the road to wine, saw him complete WSET Level 3, start a wine club, write a wine blog and earn his certificates in Viticulture & Enology at Washington State University.  In his free time when not taking pictures or editing film shorts, Devon can be found in the beautiful Okanagan outdoors back country skiing in the winter and playing disc golf in the summer.
