Laguna Canyon Winery
Having grown up on a ranch in central Canada, Marlowe Huber already knew about crop harvesting and soil when he began making wine in the early 1980s. He refined his skills still further by studying oenology in Vancouver before embarking on his first wine-business venture with his brother, Darren. Together they ran two wineries in British Columbia for 15 years before opening Laguna Canyon Winery in 2003. Today, staffers pour out a diverse selection of Laguna Canyon wines in the Barrel Tasting Room.
