Cypress Hills Vineyard and Winery is truly an oasis in the prairies. They are nurturing their vineyards and also growing rhubarb suitable for winemaking. They buy local berries and honey for wine and mead.
The tasting is a social experience laced with humour and fact. 20,000 visitors arrived last summer. That is phenomenol considering the off the beaten path location. The vineyards are in a sheltered location in a semi-arid prairie.
This is the view from the restaurant terrace. Peaceful.
While driving through Saskatchewan on the Trans Canada Highway, pull off at Maple Creek and visit this gem.
Driving home we found this pasture with a very large flock of goats. It is unusual in this part of the country. There were a few sheep in the crowd.
