See Ya Later Ranch
The wines of See Ya Later Ranch celebrate the lively legacy of Major Hugh Fraser, a colourful character who purchased the property high above the Okanagan Valley in 1920.
In a nod to the Major’s lifetime of canine companionship, the winery welcomes four-legged family members, with a Barking Lot for them to play in. Dog lovers will also get a kick out of the Major’s pet cemetery, where each of his favourite pets was given a grand burial and headstone to celebrate its life. The oldest headstone marks “Jimmy My Pal”, who lived from 1917 to 1921. There are 12 headstones in total, noting the passing of Ping, Rex, Nelly, Spud, Haggis and Eulita to name a few. His favourite pets, including Ping, Jimmy and Rex, were given engraved headstones. The last headstone is marked Rover, who was buried in 1962.
The small golden dog with wings on the See Ya Later Ranch labels pays homage to Major Fraser’s beloved pets.
