Harry McWatters


Considered the grandfather of the modern BC wine industry, Harry had celebrated his 51st BC vintage in 2018. The former CEO and president of Evolve Cellars, TIME Winery, and McWatters Collection, passed away in July 2019.

Harry’s rich career had taken him through the start-up and ownership of several successful BC wineries and he was the founding chair of many landmark organizations including the BC Wine Institute, VQA Canada, the BC Wine Information Society, Okanagan Wine Festivals Society, and the BC Hospitality Foundation.

We all raise a glass Harry and all he has done for the industry.
