    Description

    Baccata Ridge Winery specializes in the production of premium blueberry and honey wines and meads. Their high-quality fruit production is due to the exceptional care in growing methods and the mineral-rich soil in this location. The blueberries grow on 12 acres of rolling south-west facing slopes, and 14 acres have rotational crops such as alfalfa. The remaining land is buildings, operations with some treed areas.

    The current operation sells retail and wholesale wines, mead, blueberries, and honey. The farm has an extensive operation with all equipment required to process their wines. This production includes growing the berries, maintaining the onsite beehives, harvesting, distilling, bottling and boxing—ready for distribution.

    Waterfalls, a water fountain, gazebo, patio, blueberry fields and peaceful surroundings combine for a unique and unforgettable atmosphere. The farm is an extraordinary location for weddings, reunions and other special events.

    The farm area is mixed with agricultural and residential properties. Monk Road is a gravel, no thru road and ends shortly after the farm. Three titles can be separately occupied. The property is long and narrow, with Monks Road and a creek through the centre. The land is level primarily in the centre and slopes up at the east and west ends.

    A beautiful 1,494 ft2 home greets you upon arriving at the farm. The inviting living room features a cozy wood-burning fireplace. The large kitchen flows over to a dining area, with windows along the west wall overlooking the pool, rainbow trout stocked pond, water fountain, two waterfalls and blueberry fields beyond. With three bedrooms, an office, and two bathrooms, this home allows plenty of space for a family. The pool and barbeque area are grand for entertaining friends and family. Hot water in-floor heating provides comfortable heat during the winter and cooling during warmer months. The flooring is a mixture of tile, laminate and vinyl.

    The attached oversized one-car garage is more than adequate for not only a car but storage and ‘toys.’

    The super shop is an expansive 50’ x 85’ with five large overhead bay doors. Two additional open bays accommodate work machinery, extra storage, and outdoor repair. Water and power, supplied with a 400 amp electrical box water system with two pressure tanks, are more than adequate. All of the blueberry processing and wine making infrastructure is within the shop. In addition, a 1,600 ft2 roofed storage area is attached to the shop.

    Two new guest cabins, 110 and 117 ft2, each with a loft, are bright and airy. Five serviced RV sites include water and power. Also on one title is serviced site, previously occupied with a mobile home. A newly constructed wash house with water and power includes a shower and washer/dryer.

    Wine tastings are available in their rustic 349 ft2 cottage serviced with power, water and a pellet stove. The main floor has a reception area and a supply of wines and meads. A loft has access to a glass railed patio.

    The horse stables, 1,678 ft2, have six well-kept stalls, all leading through pens into a riding ring. An enclosed heated stall, a unique feature, is well suited to mares foaling and a comfortable place for medical treatment. The barn has a tidy tack room and storage for hay.

    History

    Grindrod, named after Edmund Holden Grindrod in 1886, was the first Canadian Pacific Railway inspector of telegraphs in BC, and later became a farmer near Kamloops. The community was originally part of the Carlin Estates in North Enderby after James Carlin acquired 1,300 acres in 1898. Carlin surveyed what was to become the Grindrod townsite in 1910.

    Local legend has it that the Enderby Cliffs ridge resembles the head of the Neanderthal who guarded the northern gateway to the Okanagan Trench.
