European Heritage

Alberta Roots

Spirit Hills is family owned and operated by the Bonjean family which hails from a lineage of French winemakers with still existing vineyards in the centre of France. In 1997, they settled with their 3 children in the Rocky Mountain Foothills and have lived off the land ever since. The Bonjean’s grow all of their own food organically and can, dry, freeze and cold store it all. From their love of the land grew a most unique flower winery and flower wines, which are truly rooted in Alberta’s culture and identity. Here is a peak into Spirit Hills. The Bonjean’s story has been covered on multiple television programs in English, Dutch/Flemish and Taiwanese (at 32:52). The winery is open for tours and tastings.

One of a Kind Process

Quality, quality and quality. At every level. From quality wildflower nectar, to quality harvest teams, to quality grown black currants and hand picked dandelion flower petals. When the goal is to craft the most exquisite and unique flower wines, no effort is too much.

BEES

At Spirit Hills bees are highly valued team members. Spirit Hills works with beekeepers who keep bees that are well adapted to the Rocky Mountain Foothills climate

FLOWERS

The bees harvest the nectar, from the wildflowers, they dry it and store it in the form of honey. The delicate flower petals used in the wines are handpicked.

FERMENT

In the cellar we rehydrate the honey and turn it into its liquid nectar state. This is what we ferment. For red wines black currants are treated like grape skins. White and roses are infused with delicate aromatic flower petals.

FINISHING

Some flower wines age in oak barrels while others age in either stainless steel or the bottle. Spirit Hills has a fully automated bottling line and uses the highest quality of cork and packaging materials. Everything is sterilized with steam
