Siblings. Partners. Colleagues. Friends
– The Mayhem Crew
Terry and JAK have been involved in each other’s lives for all their life. Why not spill over into business? If that’s not a recipe for Mayhem, we don’t know what is!
Terry is well immersed in the Okanagan wine industry. She and her husband Andrew Stone , along with four dogs and one cat, have a 4 acre vineyard on Anarchist Mountain where she works as a farmer growing Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
Just when she thought she was going to “semi-retire” from her five year stint as DTC/ Wine Club Manager at Tinhorn Creek, her younger brother JAK convinced her to sell him her Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, and start up a new wine label with him. When she isn’t busy in every facet of the wine industry, she is at home with Andrew and the dogs, as well as entertaining their children and grandchildren.

With a background of both public practice accounting, and many years in the food and beverage business, the wine industry has become the perfect career evolution for Janice. She brings a keen interest and understanding of the business to the organization and is responsible for the accounting. She also has immense patience in dealing with her husband and sister-in-law in running the business daily. In her time outside the wine business she is kept busy with the extracurricular activities of her two teenage daughters, coaches the local high school basketball team, and sits on the board of Skaha Housing Society.

Ajay is Australian born, New Zealand raised. After receiving a cricket scholarship out of secondary school, he completed the Oenology program at Lincoln University in Christchurch, NZ. Ajay did his first winemaking vintage in 2012, followed by harvests in Austria, New Zealand, Australia, and the USA. Ajay set his sights on BC to discover more about this young wine region and be closer to family in the Pacific Northwest.
After working at Checkmate in Oliver for over four years, he is excited about the new challenges and opportunities with Mayhem Wines. He loves Merlot, Riesling and fortified wines and is delighted to work with these varieties, along with others. Off the clock, you are most likely to find Ajay enjoying the Okanagan backcountry, playing tennis or snowboarding.

Caley hails from a strong food and beverage background, complimented by various positions within the BC wine industry as well as overseas experience. She has WSET Level 2, Canadian Wine Scholar, and has taken both the Wine Sales program and Viticulture program at Okanagan College.
She gained her wine sales experience working with the Southern Interior sales representative for Hester Creek for 2.5 years before heading to New Zealand to work the grape harvest in Marlborough for vintage 2018. Her previous cellar experience was gained at Hester Creek over vintage 2015, 2016, 2017 and with Allan Scott Family Winemakers in New Zealand. Her enthusiasm for the BC wine industry as well as outgoing personality make her a welcome addition to the Mayhem Wines Inc team.
