The Lasser family, are well established farmers in the Similkameen Valley with over 140 acres of land. They have been producing a variety of fine fruits and vegetables for traveller’s to our valley for over 25 years. Sagebrush grows throughout our semi-arid landscape. It is an evident and spectacular sight to see on the mountainsides that frame our beautiful valley of farms, orchards and vineyards. The Sagebrush is a iconic symbol of the Similkameen Valley.
Edge of the Earth is owned and operated by Marni and Russ Niles, both former journalists who moved to a beautiful seven acre property 35 years ago to raise their two fine sons. When the boys moved on to their own successful lives, they started raising grapes and they’ve been running the farm, vineyard and winery since 2002. All of their wines are made on premise in small batches to ensure quality and attention to the details that make the difference between good and great wines. The hands-on operation and careful management of overhead allows them to sell products at very reasonable prices, for as little as $8.33 a bottle. They sell only from their premises and, in the coming year at farmers’ markets. Winemaking is a challenge in this area but the vineyard site gives the grapes we grow the abundant sunshine, deep mineral soil and sparking clean water to produce wines of outstanding freshness, character and richness. They now produce more than half of their own grapes and the balance comes from small vineyards in the North Okanagan and in Osoyoos. They look forward to welcoming you for a tasting and tour so you can sample their idyllic lives and the wonderful products that result from the labour of love.
