None of what is happening at Phantom Creek Estates would be possible without the incredible team behind it. In the Meet the Team profiles, we will be sharing words and thoughts from the people behind the scenes making it all possible.

Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Tunli and raised in Pandian, China.

What drew you to the Okanagan?

I heard many good things about Canada over the years. And when I decided to move to Canada, we got a friend in this area, so it’s really a no-brainer.

What do you like most about living in Penticton?

Lakes, sunshine, fruit and nice food!

How did you first hear about Phantom Creek?

I applied to work here shortly after this project started. At that time there was only one employee here. So I learnt about the owner’s vision from the interviews.

What is your position at Phantom Creek?

I am a Translator & Admin Assistant.

What’s it been like following the progress at PCE over the last 3 years?

It’s surely exciting to see the pieces gradually coming together and taking shape, especially for a project in such scale.

Being on a small team, you’ve also helped work harvest and helped in the vineyard. What have those experiences been like?

Those are really special experiences, definitely helpful for my translation job, as I got more hands-on knowledge of the cellar and vineyard. Moreover, being on a small team, we were working really closely together, which helped build good team chemistry right from the start.

Which are your other favorite wines or wineries locally or around the world?

World wise, I really like the Pinot Gris from Domaine Zind-Humbrecht.

What would people be surprised to know about you?

Although my wife is also Chinese, we actually met and knew each other in UK during our studies.

How do you define success?

Success is the result of successive well-planned actions.

Thank you Wei!
