Little Farm Winery is the result of years of hard work for owners Alishan Driediger and Rhys Pender MW. In 1998 Alishan and Rhys were faced with the decision of pursuing “conventional jobs” or taking the plunge to follow their passion for food and wine. They never looked back and since then life has been one adventure after another. From professional culinary training to all forms of winery work in the Okanagan Valley and wine retail in Vancouver; through owning/operating a catering company and the creation of Okanagan Grocery Artisan Breads in Kelowna, they had their hands full. Although, it was when they purchased a five-acre property in the stunning Similkameen Valley that the REALLY hard work began.

In 2008 Rhys and Alishan sold their tiny 800 square foot house in Peachland and due to the luck of selling at the peak of the housing market before the bust, the opportunity presented itself to convert their good fortune to a five-acre mixed hayfield and orchard and nearly 100-year-old, characterful but slightly run-down, house. There is something about a passion for wine that drives those caught by the bug to want, or perhaps need, to create their own wine from scratch.
