About Us

We are BC's largest Meadery specializing in Dry wines made from our own BC Honey. We provide sophisticated wine consumers a craft experience of their own. Tasting Room open 11-6 daily.

Proudly providing premium artisanal honey wines tailored to sophisticated modern tastes. Mead is the craft experience that will delight even the most discriminating wine enthusiasts.

A Wines of Canada 2023 pick as the highest rated of all wines in Canada, our CQW (Quality Certified Wines) Certified Wines dispel the notion that mead is sweet. We encourage people to taste and savour our environmentally friendly, approachable and elegant wines and to consider our mead when choosing a wine for dinner or to enjoy on its own.

We have 35 flavours of mead and are always changing with the seasons to reflect what is being grown and sold for dinner in local farmers' markets...we encourage seasonal eating AND seasonal drinking!

We are a family-owned and operated winery. We are beekeepers, farmers and winemakers. Our mead is entirely farmed from our own bees and any additions are from our farm or sourced from local farmers within 5 km of our farm and is truly Bee-to-bottle.
