Waterside Vineyards & Winery is a compilation of farm based vineyards, growing eight varietals of grapes that are crafted into cool climate, approachable White, Red and Rose wines. Our property in Endery, BC hosts a seven acre vineyard with a tasting room and store on site. Other locations throughout the Shuswap host vineyards growing similar varietals of grapes under our care.
Our vineyard has taken on a Farm Fresh approach to growing, incorporating animals to keep a balance that seems long forgotten by many vineyards. We raise chickens on our farm – free ranging our birds within the vineyard. Essentially the chickens are raised in the vineyard, helping with pest control, fertilization, and aerating while providing us (and our customers!) with organic eggs and meat. We have welcomed sheep onto our vineyard as well to help maintain weed control, pruning assistance and more fertilization. They are great weeders! Having animals on our farm lets us balance the Earth we work and harvest.
Our store and tasting room on the main property is small, but filled with wonderful treasures from local artisans, authors, musicians, crafters and more. We have found our winery to be more than just a place to buy wine – it’s a place to have an experience, engage your senses and make memories.
