Who We Are


tinhorn creek head winemaker Leandro Nosal

Leandro Nosal 

Head Winemaker

What I do: manage all aspects of the wine making process to make premium Okanagan wines.





Growing up in Mendoza, one of the Great Wine Capitals, Leandro’s passion for winemaking and viticulture has been a lifelong interest. This thirst inspired a desire to follow his dreams around the globe from France to New Zealand, thus developing deep knowledge of diverse styles as well as experience in oenology and viticulture. Leandro strongly believes that low intervention winemaking is the best way to make wines that truly show their terroir. He has learned his technical winemaking skilling, by studying and working with the best in the industry, including Pernod Ricard and Grupo Penaflor. Leandro now leads winemaking at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, where he is looking forward to showcasing all that the terroir has to offer with a deep dedication to crafting distinguished wines from the Southern Okanagan

The facts: I have an agricultural engineering degree from the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, and a Master of Science in viticulture and oenology, which I achieved while studying in Montpellier, France and Torino, Italy.

dtc manager

what I do:  oversee the  Crush Club and design and execute e-comm offers.





I’ve worked at Tinhorn Creek since 2001. Like many other people who make BC their home, I’m originally from ‘somewhere else’; in my case, it was Saskatchewan, then Banff and Saltspring Island before finally calling the Okanagan ‘home’ in 1999. My job at Tinhorn fits perfectly with my love of wine and food.

The facts: I completed the Winery Assistant Program at Okanagan College (formerly OUC); I have a background in retail and the restaurant industry; on my days off I can be found scouring local flea markets in search of art project materials.
