As soon as I heard the name, See Ya Later, I knew I had to go there. The ranch, vineyard and store is located well off the beaten path in Okanagan Falls, BC, but the minute I arrived I realized it was well worth the lovely mountain drive to get there.
Contrary to an urban myth, the ranch wasn't named for a man telling his wayward wife goodbye. It was called "See Ya Later" because that's how the colorful original owner Major Hugh Fraser signed off his many letters written over the years.
While the airy wine shop, gorgeous patio, rolling vineyard and friendly staff are all very enchanting, it is the pet friendly atmosphere that makes it so dog gone captivating. It seems the Major loved his dogs so much, he wanted the sumptuous grounds to be inviting to both two legged and four legged visitors. So you'll see the memorial dedicated to his beloved pets adjacent to the Barking Lot and plenty of clever signs promoting real puppy love.
So if you love terrific drives, novel places, delicious varietals, exquisite landscaping, smiling faces and quirky creativity, you should make a trip here one of your pet projects. I guarantee you that after the first visit, you will make a promise to return when you say...
See Ya Later.
