Faustino Estate Cidery is located in Osoyoos – in Canada’s only pocket desert – and home to the country’s best quality apples, pears, peaches and cherries. For decades, Portuguese families have been passionate about growing premium quality fruit on this rich soil. We are proudly carrying on the tradition of sustainable family farming, with our new line of dry apple, semi- sweet apple and apple-pear ciders. The ciders from Faustino Estate Cidery are made using 100% juice, not from concentrate – and no water is added. Several apple varieties are used including Gala, Golden Delicious and Granny Smith – often considered dessert apples rather than traditional cider apples, which can be somewhat tart and bitter. The Apple Pear blend features the addition of Anjou Pear juice. Each bottle of Faustino Cider is fresh-pressed from estate-grown fruit, picked at exactly the right time. Our passion for quality continues from tree to bottle, to create a smooth, flavourful, refreshing cider.
Greata Ranch Vineyards, situated between Peachland and Summerland, was established in 1895 by George Greata and was one of the most prolific peach orchards in the Okanagan. Based upon Senator Ross Fitzpatrick’s boyhood memories of visiting the property with his father and sampling the sweet peaches, he purchased the property in 1994 and restored its former agricultural splendor by establishing 40 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Ehrenfelser, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Blanc vines. The Fitzpatrick’s recently sold CedarCreek Estate Winery to von Mandl Family Estates but retained Greata Ranch Vineyards. Under the leadership of Gordon Fitzpatrick the family is now working on exciting new plans to transform Greata Ranch into a Sparkling Wine House. Their inaugural vintage of 2012 traditional method Sparkling Wine was released August 2016. To prepare for this change the Greata Ranch Wine Shop is closed while renovations are underway for the re-launch of the Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards mid April 2017. The new 7,500 case boutique winery will specialize in Sparkling Wine but will also produce Chardonnay, Ehrenfelser, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Rosé, Pinot Noir and Meritage. There will also be a Mediterranean style bistro attached to the existing Wine Shop. It will be a magical wine country stop to sip a glass of Sparkling Wine and savour a slice of thin crust pizza while soaking up the breathtaking waterfront view from the deck.
