“At Uppercase Winery, we realize that our success will come from surrounding ourselves with the right people. Those who share our vision, and are just as passionate and dedicated as we are.”

Bert and Edith Evertt
The Uppercase team during harvest


Bert Evertt has had his sights on the BC wine industry for decades. In his youth, as an accomplished opera singer, Bert was afforded the opportunity to travel across Europe, where he developed an appreciation for fine wine. Over the last 40 years, his focus has been on providing the highest level of care at retirement homes throughout British Columbia’s Lower Mainland.

During summer vacations in Osoyoos with his wife and three children, Bert slowly began to search for vineyards that represented the best of the Okanagan Valley. After extensively evaluating vineyards with consulting winemaker and viticulturist Pascal Madevon, Bert purchased 20 acres on the Black Sage Bench. Uppercase was born.

Levi Gogolinski

Director of Sales & Marketing

Levi grew up on a ranch in southern Alberta before moving to the West Coast in 2008. In late 2017, after working as a territory manager for a brewery for 3 years, Levi left the hustle of downtown Vancouver and made the leap to the South Okanagan. With a profound appreciation for BC wine, a keen eye for design (she holds a BFA), and a background in beverage sales, this is the perfect position to merge her passion and experience.

Carly Craik

Hospitality and Wine Club Manager

Carly has been passionate about wine since she was a child watching her father craft barrels for local wineries. She is proud to follow in his footsteps in the wine industry. She loves wine, especially for the stories and emotions it evokes. She loves creating those stories and emotions for our guests by sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm with them. She believes that every bottle of wine has a unique story to tell, and enjoys helping our guests discover them.
