This was an unplanned stop on our way back from the Okanagan. Are we ever glad we stopped! It was probably one of our favourite wineries. They have a surprisingly large selection. Try just about anything. They probably have something that will suit your palate....More

Missed the driveway so had to make a u-turn. It was definitely worth it. We tasted a number of fruit wines, including Double Gold winners, while hearing about the family history of this unique winery and the attributes which make up their wines. The hosts...More

We were given samples of everything and they were all great. Even the cider was nice. Very informative. I would recommend their wines to anyone liking a bit of sweetness. Not the easiest winner to find but worth it.

35 years of fruit orchard nursing and now they make the most wonder full fruit wines; cherry rose and pear wines. Located overlooking the valley river and so very romantic in the summer. We were there in early May and orchards were blooming.

Awesome Winery and tasting room over looking the Similkameen River & Valley. Their wines are soooo delicious; it was difficult to say which I liked the most. So, I bought 2 over their Ice-wines;) We will definitely come here again next year. And we love...More

They have delicious wines. I mentioned I leaned towards the sweeter side and I got to taste an amazing variety. One tasted like liquid apple pie and the another like juicy, succulent pear. I bought both!

Do yourself a favor and stop here for a tasting! Award winning fruit wines. The Plum based dessert wine is our fave. They also sell fruit from their orchard.
