HESTER CREEK, A UNIQUE DESTINATION WINERY IN THE HEART OF BC’S WINE COUNTRY.
The original winery built on this site in the early 1980s by BC wine pioneer, Joe Busnardo was named Divino Estate. The property was subsequently sold in 1996 and renamed Hester Creek after the creek that borders the south side of the land.
Charmed by the scenic location and convinced of its potential, Prince George entrepreneur Curt Garland bought Hester Creek in 2004 — the dry grasslands, natural vegetation, orchards and vineyards of the Golden Mile Bench reminded him of the Mediterranean. New to the industry, he assembled an accomplished team, which included veteran Niagara winemaker Rob Summers.
