Perched on the eastern shores of Lake Osoyoos, Lakeside Cellars is the culmination of a lifelong commitment to farming.
Lakeside Cellars is not a 14-acre parcel of what was originally a vast cattle and agriculture enterprise. In 2015, Harbans and Harkesh Dhaliwal purchased the historical landmark and resting place of the old Haynes Homestead built in 1882.
Lakeside Cellars now also rests on the site of the first commercial orchard, owned and planted by Leslie Hill. The Hill Ranch stretched 1100 acres on the eastern slop around Lake Osoyoos. Orchards of cherries, apricots, nectarines, plums, prunes, peaches pears and apples, were first planted in the Okanagan north of the border.
Upon purchasing the lakeshore property in 2015, the Dhaliwals have inherited old-vine plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, planted in 1998. Their mission was to continue the tradition of agriculture on the property and guide its rich history towards the current Okanagan Lifestyle.
