Just like the blooms that blanket the Okanagan, Squeezed Winery + Distillery opens for the season in May to brighten the valley. Open Thursday to Monday, 11 am to 6 pm, for May and June, you’ll find this unpretentious boutique in Oliver at 7315 Tucelnuit Drive.
Owned and operated by siblings Christina, Nicole and Michael Ferreira, Squeezed offers a casual and cool atmosphere. The style reflects its owners, whose approach is “quirky, fun, serious when needed, creative, outgoing and dedicated.” In its tasting room, there’s jazzy branded merchandise including such wine-worthy items as tumblers and corkscrews.
Get With the Spirit
Now evolving from a winery to a distillery too, Squeezed is releasing its first spirits, starting with vodka this spring and more spirits this summer. Just like their highly quaffable wines, Squeezed spirits will pop with flavour and add some pizzazz to your bar list.
As for the selection of wines, you can opt for Gewürztraminer; a white blend of Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Riesling; a red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc; Merlot; or Syrah. Or why not pick up one of each? Each wine drinks well on its own or as a buddy to a fine food pairing.
Debuting its own outdoor seating area, Squeezed invites you to linger in the vineyard, take in the views and enjoy the chill of Okanagan lifestyle. Follow the fun @DrinkSqueezed on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to learn about its wines from the grapevine and spirits from the still!
