“They liked the group in front of us better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

We went to Rustico on 25 Aug 12 while touring 8 other wineries in the area that day. I was a very cute building and I had read all the reviews and they sounded great. When we got there the group ahead of us was laughing and having a great time with the server. They asked us to wait for 10 minutes to start a new tasting. We happily waited while another couple came in and waited with us. About 20 minutes later we started our tasting but the server was not as enthusiastic with us. My husband and I tasted and bought a bottle of wine. The other couple (which were two ladies) looked around while we were paying. When they went to pay for their bottle of wine they were told that they also had to pay a $5 tasting fee for the person that didn't buy the wine. My husband and I only bought one bottle of wine and two of us tasted and we didn't have to pay a tasting fee for the other person.???? All in all the experience was not as good as I expected based on the trip advisor reviews. Maybe just a bad day?

“Enjoy the entertainment in rustic surroundings.”

The tasting room was entertaining, wine sampled in tumblers was good. The host was a total character. A fun vineyard to visit.

“Good wines and witty wine tastings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

The wines were good as were the tastings themselves. The man doing the tastings was dressed in coveralls and had a cowboy hat on. He poured the 4 shot style glasses all in one sweep across them like out of a Western movie and had a witty line and answer for everything. A very entertaining and different experience!

“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Bruce and Kenny are a must see at Rustico Farms & Cellars out in Oliver BC Canada. Not only are they very entertaining, they also have some fabulous wines for you to try and take home with you! There is something there for everyone. Make sure you make it one of your stops while you are in the Okanagan!
