Hugging Tree Winery is an independent family owned and operated farm nestled in the mountainside of the enchanting Similkameen Valley. Here we have our labour of love, whether it is nurturing trees in our orchard, digging in the gardens or tending to the vines – we find it a peaceful and purposeful way to live our life.

We are pleased to share our sunshine captured by our grapes and hope they fill more than just your glass…

Please be well.
