Develop Your Own Canadian Winery or Hemp Cultivation Enterprise


The Basque Vineyard, BC is a stunning 12.23-acre property overlooking the majestic Thompson River Valley located on the beautiful sloping hillsides of the Basque region section of the South Caribou. Its southern exposure, sunny arid climate, and gently sloping hills make it a more fertile environment for grape cultivation than the wine country of Spain or France. The potential of this area is limitless.

The Opportunity

Located just south of Ashcroft, BC, this prime 12.23-acre parcel includes a two-bedroom home ready for your own winery, or hemp cultivation (Industrial Hemp Licence issued). Offering the perfect altitude, slope, climate, soil, and sun exposure, the vineyard overlooks the Thompson River and all the natural beauty to go with it.

The climate provides ideal conditions for wine varieties including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Semillon, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Shiraz/Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Gamey Noir, Marechal Foch, and Chancellor. Architect renderings for the wineries as well as soil and water assessments are available. The well provides 20 gallons per minute when last tested. A neighboring 31.01-acre tract is also available.

This once-thriving vineyard produced grapes facilitated by well-draining sandy loam soil, south-facing windswept slopes, and a newly installed water system for irrigation as well as a distribution center that has a purification system.


The water pump connects to the water distribution center then up to the highest point of the slope which is prepared to supply gravity-fed irrigation to the whole property (all this without disturbing the topsoil).

In addition to the magnificent landscape and Thompson river views, there is a 1200 square foot 2 bedroom one bath rancher, that boasts Italian ceramic tile flooring, open floor plan, laundry room, sunroom, and Jacuzzi bathtub. As well as a cozy fireplace to warm up to on those crisp autumn evenings where you can sit and enjoy the views.
