Rigour & Whimsy Winery

Okanagan Valley Winery Committed to Seeking Balance

Costa essentially got into wine to impress Jody, the team behind Rigour & Whimsy. On their first date, they enjoyed several BC wines Costa was somewhat familiar with, but he knew he would need to step up his game for the second date. It was down the rabbit hole from then on… they are now married with their first human child (Stratis) and several thousand vine babies nestled in the rocky soil of Okanagan Falls, BC.

Rigour & Whimsy is about to begin their 5th vintage, specializing in amber wine, as well as Gamay and Syrah. The name Rigour & Whimsy is an homage to their shared commitment to seeking balance in themselves, in their relationships, and in the natural world. Like yin and yang, Rigour and Whimsy are seemingly contrary attitudes that are actually complementary and interdependent. Both are necessary to find harmony.

Costa & Jody’s approach to wine growing centres on regenerative farming, which means to increase biodiversity, enrich soils, improve watersheds, and enhance ecosystem resilience. They believe that responsible agriculture involves building topsoil and minimizing external inputs and disturbances to the rich microbiome of the soil.
