We make our mead by applying the knowledge of the health-giving properties of herbs. With its clean and aromatic flavour our mead embodies the honey sweetness combined with the welcoming bitter notes of herbs. Its complex floral aromac compliments the sweet and spicy taste, making for an intense and enjoyable experience. Honey has been utilized in wine making since the dawn of history. The myths of different cultures depict the Gods sipping a drink based on fermented honey with herbs. It is known by many names: the Balche of Central America, the Soma of Ancient India, the Nectar of the Gods in Ancient Greece. Honey is recognized to have a wide range of healing and health-improving powers. When the beneficial properties of various herbs, fruits, berries and spices are combined with honey, they produce a potent beverage offering a variety of benefits to mind and body alike. Wildflower honey from the Fraser Valley. Herbs and berries from Lower Mainland. Fruits from the Okanagan Valley. No sulfites added.

Purchased in 1986, CedarCreek released its first wines in 1987 and was one of the first 8 pioneering wineries of BC. With four generations of agricultural heritage and more than a quarter century of experience, we have pursued perfection and produced some of the valley's best wines resulting in CedarCreek being twice recognized as "Canada's Winery of the Year". Today, we look proudly towards the future to further promote our region. At CedarCreek the hybrid grapes gave way to new plantings of vinifera vines, the small basement cellar was transformed into state of the art winemaking facilities and the very best in viticulture was applied. This pioneering was tempered by patience and perseverance which became his mantra. These ideals matured into CedarCreek's philosophy: "Respect the land, honour tradition, pursue perfection." In February of 2014 the Fitzpatrick family announced the transfer of ownership of CedarCreek Estate Winery to the von Mandl Family. With this, two of the region’s pioneering winemaking families have come together with a shared vision for the Okanagan Valley, one that will continue the Fitzpatrick family legacy for generations to come. Our knowledge of the terroir of the Okanagan and dedication to the craft have brought many awards and international acclaim, to our winery and our region. We are committed to building on our success by continuing to refine our approach to wine growing. Passion, tenacity, care and hard work are vital but above all we seek truth in wine. On that, you have our word.
