1. things that are out of control
2. erratic or crazy people

Haywire refers to wire once used for baling hay, which tended to tangle in a chaotic way. It is also an apt description of Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie’s transition from city slickers to farmers and winery owners.
Of course, they cannot do it alone. To shape their wine style, the couple is joined by the talented Michael Bartier, working with David Scholefield and consulting winemaker Alberto Antonini from Italy.
The wine is made at the couple’s Okanagan Crush Pad Winery in Summerland, BC. Okanagan Crush Pad is a 30,000 case facility that makes Haywire, Bartier Scholefield and many other fine wines for grape growers who are emerging BC vintners.
