November 12, 2008
Bellstar Hotels & Resorts and Olympus Resorts have contracted wine personality David Scholefield to consult on the development The Reserve Collection™ – an exclusive collection of private residence clubs in handpicked vineyard locations around the world. Scholefield will lend his professional identity as a foremost wine expert in the Canadian wine industry to create the multi-faceted ultra-luxury residences.
Canada’s first release of the vineyard-based Private Residence Club is slated for the Okanagan Valley in a soon to be disclosed location.
“This is an unbelievably exciting opportunity for the wine lovers among us,” notes Scholefield. “The Reserve Collection™ fulfills our fantasy for a real and direct connection to wine country. In addition, the exchange concept allows us to travel beyond the Okanagan Valley to like-minded wine-centric destinations around the world.”
“David will be responsible for creating the Vintners Club which blends The Reserve Collection™ member experience with the Okanagan wine experience,” says Jon Zwickel, Bellstar’s Executive Vice President. “His wine knowledge and his personality make him a perfect pairing with our fractional residence clubs.”
David Scholefield is one of Canada's most experienced and well-travelled wine personalities. His renowned palate, sharp wit and great passion for wine have established him as a much sought-after wine consultant, speaker, teacher and judge. David currently holds the title of Chief Judge at the annual Vancouver Magazine International Wine Competition and regularly presents at the Food & Wine Classic at Aspen as well as many other wine festivals.
Bellstar Hotels and Olympus Resorts will create The Reserve Collection™ - residences that will be sold as fractional ownership. Ownership will include Vintners Club privileges as well as exchange benefits through the Elite Alliance, a growing array of luxurious worldwide ski, golf and beach destinations.
Future locations for the expansion of The Reserve Collection™ may include wineries in the Gulf Islands of BC, Argentina, New Zealand, Europe, California, Oregon and Washington.
