The Team


Vilem, Vineyard Manager

Stags Hollow Winery

Vilem came to Stag’s Hollow from the Czech Republic.  On a one-year visit to Canada, Vilem fell in love with the Okanagan, decided to stay and is currently working on his permanent residency.  Vilem looks after the vineyards at both locations – Stag’s Hollow and Shuttleworth Creek. You will find him mainly on the tractor in the field, with our seasonal vineyard team or on the crush pad during harvest!

Erin, Sales & Marketing Manager

Stags Hollow Winery

Erin is an Okanagan girl who decided to move back to the Valley and pursue her passion for wine in 2009, after spending several years working in architectural design, and travelling overseas. Erin started in the cellar as an assistant winemaker, before moving into the Sales and Marketing side of the industry. She shares her extensive knowledge and passion for the wines of BC by teaching wine studies at Okanagan College, and through her work here at Stag’s Hollow Winery, along with being a wine blogger and champion of BC wines nationally and internationally. She is halfway through her WSET Diploma studies with WSET School London, England.

Jennifer, Administrative Assistant

Stags Hollow Winery

Jennifer spends most of her time at the computer helping Linda keep the business and accounting side of the winery running smoothly.  Once in a while you’ll see her appear briefly in the tasting room to help out with our guests when things get very busy, or even on the bottling line enjoying the winery camaraderie! She is also the chief organizer/ logistics queen behind all the wine club packing.

Pinot & Sully, Official Greeters

Stags Hollow Winery

A winery is not a winery these days without a winery dog or two. Pinot has grown up in the tasting room from 8 weeks old and is often recognized, especially by our returning customers.  Sully joined us as a bouncy grown-up about three years ago as his owner had passed away and he needed a new home.  He has completely fit in and loves being at Pinot’s side grooming her and usually hogging the dog bed!  Sully and Pinot like to think they are fierce hunters, scaring birds, deer and marmots out of the vineyard when not working as greeters in the tasting room.
