Our Team

Moon Curser Vineyards - a name that captures many colourful stories of the Osoyoos area, as well as the renegade spirit of our winemaking. Meet the colourful characters of our team below.

Community & Stewardship

We want Moon Curser Vineyards to be a responsible corporate citizen and a contributing member of both our most immediate community of Osoyoos, as well as the broader world of South Okanagan and British Columbia. We strive to be a responsible and fair employer, continue to evolve our farming practices to grow the grapes that we use in a sustainable fashion, and support local businesses, charitable organizations, and our neighbours and colleagues the best we can.

We are:

Chris & Beata Tolley


Moon Curser Chris Tolley

Chris Tolley

Complex fella: Software Engineer toppled by the wine bug. His academic year at NZ’s Lincoln University in Viticulture and Oenology program gave him a soft spot for offbeat varieties with loads of character. Now works as Executive Winemaker, or so he claims. “You got something special for me?”

Moon Curser Beata Tolley

Beata Tolley

Chartered Accountant? Yeah, right. Also trained in viticulture and oenology at Lincoln University, she now manages the inner workings of Moon Curser and makes inexplicable things happen. “Nothing clandestine is going on here. Just look the other way."


Moon Curser Christian Scagnetti

Christian Scagnetti

The Winemaker. They call him 'The Crusher', but never to his face. Makes wine sing like a bird. Impeccable standards, a refined palate and an innate understanding of what it takes, grape to bottle. Aims for the stars. Hides from the moon.

Moon Curser Crystal Coverdale

Crystal Coverdale

Orchestrates the machinations of the joint as the winery GM. Member of the inner sanctum, and possibly a witness relocation program. Knows not to draw too much attention to the operation except when she flirts with social media. Keen eye, meticulous oversight. "The best surprise is no surprise".   


Moon Curser Barbara Kahlo

Barbara Kahlo

You wanna score the goods, you gotta talk to our Wine Smuggling Operations Coordinator. Tasting Room, Wine Club, online wine sales, you name it. Makes the place run like clockwork and gets things done yesterday. "Whaddya need? Let's makes this happen."
