It all began at Back Door Winery during the Great Depression when our property was just a small apple orchard that stubbornly endured the hardships of that miserable decade. The foundations along with the very framework of that modest, turn of the century orcharding homestead are still visible today in its new role as our cozy little Wineshop.

Back Door Winery has slowly grown from roots of dissolved partnerships and apple orchards. Before Pieter Smits purchased our Summerland property, it had actually sat abandoned for 7 years. Tragically, there had been no water, no pruning… nothing except neglected grape vines and a lot of potential.
