  • Description

    Description

    We have a craft distillery and hobby farm. We produce beautiful liqueurs and spirits from all kinds of local fruit varieties on the Naramata Bench in the South Okanagan. We are a German family who immigrated straight to Penticton 16 years ago and instantly fell in love with the valley and its breathtaking views.

    Our farm consists of 3 acres of grape vines, an always growing vegetable garden, various types of chickens and pheasants, cats and dogs and an active tasting room where we produce and sell our well loved eaux-de-vies. Behind our farm our property continues for steep, rolling hills home to some of the Okanagan's unique and plentiful wildlife.

    Down the road from us is the Kettle Valley Rail Trail which allows hours of exploration to wineries, historic landmarks, waterfalls and is a direct route to Penticton's town center and beaches. We have several bicycles for you to explore with as well as a canoe if you're feeling adventurous on the lake. For a very chilled out experience you can borrow our floaties and go for a "float" down Penticton's lazy river channel.

    We, Jorg and Anette, truly love living here and would be very excited to share our little slice of paradise with you.
