Complex Choices for a Sustainable Future

Connecting Business, Land and Community in the Okanagan

Speaker: Tony Stewart, CEO, Quails' Gate Winery

Tony Stewart (pictured right), CEO and Proprietor of Quails' Gate Winery, will talk about his family's farming history in the Okanagan Valley over the past century, and how each of his company's decisions involve choices and trade-offs regarding sustainability. He will use his own story to illustrate how the kinds of complex decision-making we engage in all the time looks for a BC estate winery business that is trying to do the right thing by the land, the community, the industry, and its own financial prosperity.
