We loved the atmosphere, the story telling, the wine, and the personality of the people and the place. It is a must-visit winery!
The wines were good as were the tastings themselves. The man doing the tastings was dressed in coveralls and had a cowboy hat on. He poured the 4 shot style glasses all in one sweep across them like out of a Western movie and had a witty line and answer for everything. A very entertaining and different experience!
Bruce and Kenny are a must see at Rustico Farms & Cellars out in Oliver BC Canada. Not only are they very entertaining, they also have some fabulous wines for you to try and take home with you! There is something there for everyone. Make sure you make it one of your stops while you are in the Okanagan!

There is an old house from 1885 on the property originally inhabited by miners... More
Best wine tasting experience I've had. Don't be fooled by the drive in and the surroundings. Let yourself experience it and taste the wines. You'll walk away having had a great time and some great wine in your hands.
The last time I was there, the owner (who has prepared stories to tell) did not want us to sample his wines until he was thru talking with the tourists he was then busy with. He told us to go up to the art gallery first When I came back, he would not serve me until my husband was also... More
Bruce & Ken are fantastic. The atmosphere is second to none. Sampling wine traditionally. Highly recommend having a threesome. I had one with the dogs. Rustico is the best experience in the entire Okanagan. Don't miss it!
Great wine with great conversation and local historic info.
