Just 10 minutes south of Peachland, and 10 minutes north of Summerland, Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards opened at the historic Greata Ranch in 2017, following a decade-long journey in the wine industry. The Fitzpatrick family’s rich history in winemaking culminated in creating the traditional method of sparkling wine. This estate vineyard spans 40 acres with seven carefully selected varietals: Chardonnay, Ehrenfelser, Gewürztraminer, Meunier, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Riesling. They take thoughtful measures to ensure the integrity of the fruit, working by hand and with small bins at harvest.
