The Veranda Beach Vineyard
At Veranda Beach we are committed to growing the very best fruit possible, using sustainable farming methods and to supporting our Winemaker in producing excellent wines. With our land's exceptional terroir, its' unique sandy soils and ideal microclimate, Veranda Beach is well poised to join the outstanding estate wineries of the area.
More than twelve acres of Barbera, Sangiovese, Cab Franc and Riesling grapes have already been plantedand are in full production. Additional varietals will be planted to complement Veranda's small lot production.
Well known Okanagan Valley grape grower Richard Cleave mentored Veranda's Vineyard Crew in planning and caring for the day to day operations of the vineyards.
Veranda Beach celebrated its inaugural grape harvest in the fall of 2010. As Veranda Beach Winemaker Katy Smith Perry says, "it all begins with great fruit" and Veranda Beach Vineyards produces just that. The Veranda Beach crew are passionate about what they do and it truly comes through in Veranda Beach Cellars wines.
When vineyard production warrants, Veranda Beach Cellars Winery is proposed to be built at the western foot of Cactus Mountain. Construction of the winery will include a "Wine Cave" which will not only serve as wine storage but provide a unique venue for tastings, dinners and other special events
With its outstanding Vineyard, Wines, beautiul Lake Osoyoos with its sandy Beach, a vibrant Village Center, and the addition of Wine related activities and events, Veranda Beach is quickly becoming the Pacific Northwest's most popular destination.
