We have a strong commitment to quality and are proud of our award winning aromatic cool-climate whites and our fruit forward, spicy reds. In honour of our apple growing history we also craft Wards Cider. Tucked into a charming 1920’s era vintage building, our wine shop is an eclectic and inviting stop for any wine tour.

Visitors are offered the unique opportunity to taste our estate grown wines and ciders right in our working cellar for a truly authentic experience.

Did you know… only 2% of Gelato shops in the world make their gelato from SCRATCH? It’s true! Most shops combine pre-made ingredients from manufacturers. 

 We made the decision early on to offer only the most authentic Gelato experience possible. This brought us to Italy, where we learned how to use real, raw, fresh ingredients to create unique flavours that will tantalize your taste buds.

 That’s why we opened our shop in the heart of the Okanagan; to take advantage of all the incredible local ingredients – from fresh milk to a plethora of herbs, berries, fruit, nuts and wine.

The Times Colonist is the oldest daily newspaper in Western Canada. It was created by the 1980 merger of the British Colonist, which started in 1858, and the Victoria Daily Times, which began publishing in 1884. The British Colonist was founded by Amor De Cosmos, who went on to become the second premier of British Columbia. The newspaper has chronicled the history of Victoria and Vancouver Island from the gold rush days of the 1850s to Victoria’s present status as a thriving capital city and an international tourist destination.

Today, the Times Colonist is the dominant medium in the B.C. capital, reaching a quarter of a million households every week. The newspaper’s lively blend of local news and informed commentary make it a must-read for Victorians who want to know what is happening in the capital and on Vancouver Island. The Times Colonist has also been recognized provincially and nationally with awards for its investigative reporting, editorials and beat coverage, and, the newspaper’s website, delivers breaking news and other multimedia content to a growing number of readers nearly 24/7.

The newspaper’s strong connections with the community stretch back almost to its inception. The Christmas Fund has been delivering Christmas cheer to the needy for more than half a century, the TC 10K is the second largest run in the province, and the Times Colonist Book Drive has raised more than $5 million for literacy projects in Victoria and on Vancouver Island.

The Times Colonist publishes in print six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday, and online 365 days per year.

The Kettle Valley Stone Company was conceived in 1998. It began as a small division of L&D Petch Contracting LTD, a leader in the local aggregate and construction sector since 1956, rapidly growing into a viable and self-sustaining company.

Back in 1998, the “Stone Division”, as it was called, started off with one quarry and simple landscaping products that were sold in the local market.

Demand for choice and variety led us in search of other stone types. We engaged the experts familiar with the geology of the area, quickly opened up two additional quarries, and secured six others for further endeavours.

The landscaping products began to flourish; we realized that a much larger market potential existed far beyond just our provision of landscaping materials
