Ten years ago a couple from Slovakia, both winemakers, decided to move to Canada because of our show Hollywood and Vines. They opened a winery in the Okanagan and our paths were crossed forever. It was destiny.
Two years ago, we decided to put this beautiful story in a bottle. We started by questioning everything – the smallest decision, the most trivial detail – to try to create a wine that has every answer. Now you can hear what it has to say.
It’s a wine that has a lot to say. But it does so elegantly, almost quietly. It doesn’t demand your attention. It earns it.
Now, we can’t wait to share it with you.

Slovakian-Canadian winemaker Michal Mosny is the proprietor of Winemaker’s CUT, an acclaimed winery based at the District Wine Village in Oliver, BC.
“I heard about Canadian wine for the first time from Terry and Jason’s international television show, Hollywood and Vines TV, that aired around the globe, and it quickly became my passion, They are the reason why I decided to move here with my wife in 2011 and make wines in the Okanagan Valley.”
“Q&A and Winemaker’s CUT share the same vision and philosophy towards wine,” said Mosny. “Both labels reflect our curious and detail-obsessed demeanour. We leave no stones unturned in finding what we seek. If the answer does not exist, it is the opportunity to make the calls for ourselves.”
British Columbia-born actor and director Jason Priestley turned his passion for wine into a serious commitment when he joined the ownership group of Black Hills Estate Winery in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley in October 2007. Priestley was part of a team that grew Black Hills into one of the South Okanagan's leading wineries, anchored by its flagship Nota Bene red blend. The winery was sold to Andrew Peller Limited in 2017.
“After the sale, I continued to search for exceptional terroir capable of producing a peerless Bordeaux-style blend. Throughout this journey, I merged paths with Michal and Terry. Together, we questioned what we already know, over and over again,” said Priestley. “After looking everywhere, all roads led to one answer, and the answer is once again in the Okanagan. This time, the difference is in the details, with a focus on elegance and finesse.”
Media broadcaster and wine radio host Terry David Mulligan completes the Q&A trio. Former host and producer at CBC TV and MuchMusic. Most recently, he hosts the Mulligan Stew and Tasting Room Radio, as well as co-hosts Hollywood and Vines TV with Priestly – television shows that have anchored him as one of Canada’s leading wine experts.
“The Okanagan has always been the answer. I can attest from the time I lived in the Valley,” Mulligan laughed. “It all started with a question: what is next for this wine-producing paradise? Having asked countless more questions to myself, and to the guests as a show host, I am thrilled to have found the answer with Jason and Michael, and we are thrilled to share this project with you.”
