- Mandatory increased hand hygiene for all employees, including ensuring there is hand sanitizer at every cash station and procedures during the guest check-out process

- Mandatory social distancing for everyone while at the winery will be enforced – we have installed barriers and marked floors to help employees and guests practice social distancing
- Employees must wear a mask when/if social distancing is not possible
- Guests must hand sanitize prior to entering the retail boutique
- Guests who have expressed symptoms of COVID-19 or who have travelled outside the country in the last 14 days will be asked to reschedule their visit

Almost a century ago, our founder, Major Hugh Fraser, purchased what would become See Ya Later Ranch, high atop Hawthorne Mountain. It’s sunny slopes continue to produce award-winning wines to this very day.
Located in the Okanagan Valley near the south end of Skaha Lake and nearly two thousand feet above sea level, See Ya Later Ranch is one of the highest elevation vineyards in the Okanagan Valley – an area where nature has created conditions perfect for growing grapes destined to become award-winning wines.
The vineyard’s slope, proximity to the lake, warm days and cool evenings all encourage healthy ripening of cool weather varietals including Pinot Noir, Riesling and the largest planting of Gewürztraminer in North America, with sixty-five acres devoted to this aromatic, cool climate varietal.
