It’s good to be a reporter here…


It’s all smiles at the Peachland Visitor Centre today. Local historian Richard Smith unveiled his work – different scenes of our town that are now on the new bottles from Hainle Winery!

“I did one scene every day for about two weeks,” says Richard. He and Hainle owner Bella Huang met awhile back, when Richard was giving a talk on the history of Peachland at the historic school house.

“At the end of the talk, she said she was very interested in Peachland’s history. I don’t know of any other winery anywhere, that puts their own town on labels.”

Of course, I had to complete this assignment with a wine tasting at Hainle – they’re working with the Peachland Community Arts Council this weekend and proceeds from wine pre-orders today and tomorrow will all go towards the Peachland Historic School Accessible Plaza Society. Nice!
