Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
A native of California, Sandra Oldfield arrived at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in 1995 after receiving her Master’s Degree in Enology from UC Davis. She made the wines for the first 20 vintages and has been the winery’s CEO since 2010. She is passionate about the BC wine industry and was instrumental in beginning BC’s first sub appellation, the Golden Mile Bench. In 2011 Sandra created #BCWineChat on twitter which she still hosts every Wednesday night from 8-9pm PST. Tinhorn Creek is Canada’s only carbon neutral winery and won Canada’s Safest Employer award in hospitality in 2016. Also in 2016, Sandra was named one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women as a Trailblazer and Trendsetter and hopes to keep pushing the BC wine industry to greater heights in the years to come.
