About JoiRyde Winery:

It all started with a spin bike. Daphne and Stacy met as passionate spin instructors of a local gym in Penticton, BC. When the pandemic of 2020 hit they found themselves unemployed and looking for a new opportunities. Daphne had an extensive background in the local wine industry, while Stacy had the business savvy and love of BC wine. The two had heard about a new project at District Wine Village, where those who had the drive and passion to make beautiful wine, could create their brand in a small wine village community. Daphne and Stacy clinked their glasses and prepared themselves for the next JoiRyde that life would bring them.
