Welcome to Rustico Winery

Welcome - Benvenuto - Bienvenido -
Bienvenue - HOWDY!

In midsummer 2007, I discovered an ideal setting for our Rustico Farm & Cellars estate winery in the South Okanagan, on the acclaimed Golden Mile between Oliver (Wine Capital of Canada) and Osoyoos on the U.S. border.

Located on a gently sloping hill facing south-east, with mountainsides to the immediate south and west behind us, the Rustico vineyards capture the first magical rays of early morning sun and never let them go until much later in the day.

Our property is relatively small in comparison to many of our internationally recognized neighbors but certainly we can hold our own when it comes to uniqueness and grape-growing terroir.

It’s interesting to note that our old-vine vineyards have produced grapes for a number of these local wineries (we have at least 27 nearby) as they developed their award-winning styles, gathering accolades world-wide.

We hope you’ll visit this website often, join our Wine Posse Club email list so we can keep you in the loop, and one day soon take a journey back in time by visiting our old-country-style winery where we’ll gladly share Canada’s most romantic wines…  and just wait until you see our “rustico”, a heritage log house replete with its environmentally correct sod roof.

Our wines are definitely romantic

Rustico Farm & Cellars is said to be home of Canada’s most romantic wines.  We think you’ll agree that  while all wines are romantic what makes ours special is who you’ll see drinking them and the romance of our spectacular hillside farm with its laid back country attitude and style.

Our old-vine vineyards produce Gewurztraminer, Merlot, Zinfandel and Chancellor grapes, (from the first planting of settlers, Josuf  and Ursula Tokias).
