Can you believe Singletree Winery has been in business for a full year! Sometimes it’s seems like a lifetime; other times it feels like a month. But that’s how it is when your work is your passion and you shareRead More ▸
In the late 1800s, the Singletree, the single harness yoke, was an essential tool for pioneering farmers. It allowed those who saw the potential of the Mt. Lehman area to use horses to clear the land, and make way for farming; no easy feat.
The Etsell family identifies with these early farmers, and while they have access to modern amenities, they are proud to carry on the tradition of working the land with their family. After gaining vast experience growing produce and operating a thriving turkey farm, Garnet and Debbie Etsell have now ventured into BC’s exciting wine industry with Singletree Winery.
You are invited to visit Singletree, taste, and take in the sights and flavours of Fraser Valley wine country.
Grown in the shade of Mt. Lehman
We have a twelve-acre vineyard here in Mt Lehman and we also have a two-acre vineyard near the Abbotsford airport where we grow all our whites and pinot noir.
It took about five years to research what rootstock and what varieties would grow well here in the Fraser Valley.
2010 is when we started to plant, starting with the two acre block behind our house and we’ve grown since then.
