2021 Piquette 

6.4% This is a low alcohol wine made from the pressings of the Siegerrebe and water. ¬†A little fizzy, kind of like a sour beer, it’s perfect for sunny days. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, this is naturally made so there is sediment in the bottle and no sulphites. ¬†

ClearCut Distilling Co.

ClearCut Distilling Company takes the wine we’ve made at the Winery and distills it into some fun spirits. ¬†

Botanically Incorrect Gin

38.5%  This is a true farm grown spirit.  We handcraft our spirits in small batches from the wine grown and made at our Winery and the botanicals are foraged and grown on the Farm.   As botanicals change with the seasons so goes the gin.  This is not your traditional gin, it’s Botanically Incorrect!

$25.00¬† excluding taxes and bottle deposit ‚Äď 375 ml bottle

Brandy 319 

40%  This brandy is distilled once to preserve the flavours of the base wine that was grown and fermented on the Farm and then bulk aged in glass demi-johns with medium toast American Oak.  

$25.00¬† excluding taxes and bottle deposit ‚Äď 375 ml bottle

Clear Cut Vodka 

40%  Double distilled so it still has that hint of Grape-a, a unique vodka for martinis and other cocktails.  

$40.00¬† excluding taxes and bottle deposit ‚Äď 750 ml bottle

SouthEnd Chicken and The Shack

In addition to the winery (because we’re not busy enough) we run a small pastured meat chicken farm from May to October with birds raised in small flocks as well as The Shack Vacation Rental which you can either book here or email us directly if you are interested in staying on the farm.

Chicken

We raise small flocks at a time and they are treated with respect and love until we harvest them.  We are Ministry of Agriculture licensed (Farmgate Plus) and we are able to slaughter them ourselves rather than subject them to additional stress by taking them to an abattoir.

We started doing this because we wanted to provide wholesome food for our 2 kids and we wanted them to understand where their food originates. We are only able to sell directly from the farm, we sell out quickly so if interested please call us at 250-285-2257 to reserve your birds.

The Shack at SouthEnd Farm

We’ve built a rustic and charming (in our humble opinion) tiny house that has its own entrance and patio with a separate toilet room accessed from the patio. There is a kitchen that is fully stocked with vintage Le Creuset cast iron pots and a propane cooktop. The queen bed is in the loft of the living area and the living area has a cozy couch for curling up and reading on as well as a propane fireplace for heat and ambiance.

You have your own little patio with an outdoor table and fire pit. There’s a BBQ and you have your own driveway. Our house is right beside the Shack so you may see us going to the chicken coop or wandering around the yard gardening etc. We’re around so will be able to clarify when you arrive at the farm.
