Barb & Tony Holler
Owners of Poplar Grove Winery

Tony grew up in Summerland, BC. He studied sciences at Okanagan College and moved on to UBC where he received a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and a Medical degree. Tony met his wife Barb when he was a medical intern at Vancouver General Hospital. After completing his doctorate he worked at the University Hospital for 11 years as an Emergency Room Physician and was a Clinical Instructor of Medicine. An avid collector over the years, Tony had a large wine cellar from all of the premium wine regions from around the world. This love and passion for great wine led him to an interest in Okanagan wines in the early 2000s when only a few wineries existed along the Naramata Bench. He started tasting wines from some of the top producers in the Okanagan Valley and believed that this relatively undiscovered region had the terroir to produce world class wines. This, coupled with Barb & Tony’s love for the Okanagan, led to the purchase of Poplar Grove Winery in 2007. Fifteen years later, Poplar Grove’s signature red blend, The Legacy, has been internationally recognized, achieving gold medal status, vintage after vintage. Along with their four sons, Chris, Andrew, Matthew, and Eric, they farm more than 160 acres between the Naramata Bench and Osoyoos.
