Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards

Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards In 1895, George Greata purchased what is now our land— a beautiful spot mostly accessible by water. Or pack mule. He had the thought that this would be a perfect spot to grow fruit, and he was right, but being on a bench above the lake he had a problem. Water. It’s hard to make it flow uphill. Not to be deterred, in 1900 he did something remarkable. He built a wooden flume to carry water from a creek. The flume was approximately five miles long, and no small undertaking in those days. But that water made a working orchard possible and in 1901, he planted 50 acres of apples. Greata Ranch was born.

From Kelowna: Proceed south on Hwy 97 towards Penticton. From the Connector: Take the Hwy 97 South exit towards Penticton. From both of the above, one travels south on Hwy 97. Once you have gone through the traffic light at the south end of Peachland, it is 9 kilometres to the winery. Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards is located on the lake side of the highway. Exercise caution while turning left at the large Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards entrance sign off Hwy 97.
