Our Story

For how we gather today, and tomorrow.

Valley Commons is a way of gathering, of relishing in BC’s mountains and lakes, the sweeping vineyards and abundant orchards. Here, you’re welcomed as family.


Valley Commons is a start-up winery located in the South Okanagan owned by retired professional athletes; husband-wife duo Rudy Verhoeff and Kyla Richey. There vision is that the winery is a place where people gather to celebrate life and connect with friends and family while appreciating the beauty of the Okanagan Valley. The couple intend Valley Commons to embody a ‘come as you are’ spirit, a place where everyone feels welcome.


Valley Commons is a spot for friends and family, for special occasions and spontaneous get-togethers, for relationships new and old. Whether serving from our tasting room or sending our sips on the road for your next weekend getaway, we’re sharing our valleys’ bounty—beyond the wine. The essence of carefree summers, lakeside picnics, slow afternoons with friends. It’s an invitation to release, reconnect and rediscover. Valley Commons becomes a journey and a destination for all things life.

A celebration of the valleys and those who gather here.

This is where global metropolitans and our homeland’s cornucopia come together.

Valley Commons is an experience to be shared, an invitation by way of imaginative wines created from our local BC bounty.
