Jacq Kemp, Winemaker

Formally a research nutritional scientist, I put aside my lab coat in 1998 to follow a passion for wine making, and completed a Viticulture & Oenology degree at Lincoln University, New Zealand. In 2000, I began building my practical experience working multiple vintages in Burgundy, Western Australia, New Zealand and Canada. 

Since having a family and moving to Canada in 2008 I'm now actively involved in wine making in the Okanagan Valley focusing on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Merlot Blends. My future endeavour with Therapy Vineyards opens up a new and exciting door for me to expand my interest and love for sparkling wines. My goal for Therapy wines is to make vineyard focused wines that are balanced, elegant and distinctly varietal. Cheers.
