Some of our favourite wines and one of our favourite places to visit whether it’s Abbotsford with a beautiful setting or Naramata with its new tasting room.
If you are ready to start wine tasting and wine touring again then Singletree is the place to be to enjoy some sipping pleasure.
Singletree Winery Fraser Valley is in the Mt. Lehman area of Abbotsford, and Singletree Naramata in the Okanagan. The Etsell family has deep roots in the agricultural community.
With careful attention to their land, they are committed to showcasing the best of British Columbia: the Fraser Valley, which provides a lineup of aromatic, crisp, and juicy wines that highlight this unique terroir; and Naramata Bench in the Okanagan, where the glacial soils and warm climate produce luscious red wines.
Their portfolio includes Siegerrebe, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Grüner Veltliner, Late Harvest Kerner, Pinot Noir Rosé, Wild Ferment Siegerrebe, a white blend called Homestead, Harness, a Bordeaux-style red blend, two Frizzante wines, Victory and Family Reserve Rosé, and a traditional-method sparkling wine called Merryfield. The wines are made by second generation family member Andrew Etsell.
Both Singletree Abbotsford and Naramata are welcoming guests for tasting under stringent safety protocols. Abbotsford tasting room is open from Wednesday – Sunday, 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm, Naramata Bench tasting room is open Wednesday – Sunday for now – 12:00 pm to 5 pm.

Enjoy New Releases!
The winery has recently released a series of wines from the 2019 vintage including: 2019 Siegerrebe, 2019 Viognier, 2019 Pinot Gris, 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, 2019 Rosé, 2019 Grüner Veltliner, 2017 Merlot and two Frizzante wines, Victory and Family Reserve Rosé.
And for the summer of 2020, if you cannot make it to the winery, you can pick up a bottle of Singletree’s flagship Siegerrebe wine Sieggie at BC Liquor Stores. Fruity and floral, this slightly off-dry, Fraser Valley grown Siegerrebe is a fruit salad of peaches, pears, apricots and limes with a slightly spritzy palate. Perfect for the patio. Grab a bottle before it’s gone!
