Campbell's Gold Honey Farm & Meadery offers a variety of honey wines, including ancient Mead, which is believed to be the oldest known alcoholic beverage. Mead was first discovered by the Sumerians in Mesopotamia thousands of years ago. Enjoyed by the Egyptians, Mead gained real popularity in the mead halls of the Norsemen. The romantic tradition of offering mead to newlyweds led to the sweet potion being known as the "drink of love" in the middle ages. It is not uncommon for brides to use honey wines as wedding favours, or for a ceremonial toast to the bride and groom at the wedding. In addition to our traditional Mead, we produce the following ancient honey wines: Pyment (honey wine with grapes), Melomel (honey wine with a blend of fruit or berries), Metheglin (honey wine with spices), Cysor (honey wine with apple juice/cider). Most of the fruit and berries are grown organically on our farm. We have our own commercial apiary. The delightful aspect of honey wines is that we know that the honey used is pure, as bees if contaminated with any pesticide become disoriented and do not make it back to their hives. Honey wines are best stored cool and served chilled. Metheglins are delightful when mulled (warmed) during the cooler B.C. fall and winter seasons. We offer most of our wines in the 750 ml, 375 ml and 50 ml sized bottles.
Our winemaking philosophy is straightforward. Great wines come from the best estate grapes grown in our vineyards and winemaking techniques that capture the character in every bottle. In May 1995, the first plantings went into the ground. Forefront in our thoughts has been an unwavering force to remain true to the organic methodologies. We start out by hand picking and sorting our grapes before the production cycle begins. We utilize stainless steel tanks and a range of French oak barrels in our production of white, rose and red wines. Oak acts as an important ingredient to enhance our wine's complexity and depth. Every new vintage offers our winemaker the opportunity to try a new technique, to experiment and to blend. The trick is finding barrels and tanks that complement one another. Our mission is to be perceived and remain as an established boutique family owned winery which consistently produces exceptional, full flavoured wines which reflects the unique qualities of our region. As we move into the next generation, we will continue to strive and create beautiful handcrafted products so our friends, family and customers can enjoy the fruits of our labour.

Singletree Winery is a small, family-owned and operated vineyard located in the Mt. Lehman area of Abbotsford, an emerging wine region in the heart of agri-business that is British Columbia’s Fraser Valley. With extensive farming experience, the Etsell family has developed a strong work ethic, a sense of responsibility for the land, and an appreciation for the local agriculture that they aim to express in each bottle of Singletree wine. The winery was named for a single harness yoke that was commonly used in the late 1800s. The Singletree was an essential tool that allowed fertile land in the historic Mt. Lehman area to be cleared to make way for farms. Indeed, the warm summers, mild winters and bountiful soils of the Fraser Valley climate make it an ideal growing region for quality vinifera. With this in mind, and with careful attention to the land, Singletree is committed to showing the world what Fraser Valley wine is capable of. Throughout, the wines offer lush aromatics balanced with crisp, juicy flavours and bright acidity.
