A Natural Wonder
Located in the Okanagan Valley near the south end of Skaha lake and nearly two thousand feet above sea level, See Ya Later Ranch is one of the highest elevation vineyards in the Okanagan Valley - an area where nature has created conditions perfect for growing grapes destined to become award-winning wines.
A unique microclimate forms around the northeast exposure and a saddle formation that allows long hours of sun. A considerable drop in elevation ensures excellent drainage and good exercise for the dogs. Cooler temperatures during the growing season allow the fruit to maintain acid and give the wines exceptional balance. The vineyard’s slope, proximity to the lake, warm days and cool evenings all encourage healthy ripening of cool weather varietals including Pinot Noir, Riesling and the largest planting of Gewürztraminer in North America, with sixty-five acres devoted to this aromatic, cool climate varietal. Remaining acres grow Chardonnay, Ehrenfelser, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
The Okanagan Valley is two hundred miles east of Vancouver in sunny Southern British Columbia – a community founded on agriculture and best known for its abundance of fruits, vegetables and, of course, fine wines.
