Apricus Cellars was born out of our love for the climate, land, soil, and sun of the South Okanagan and the fruit grown in those elements. Apricus (äˈpriːkʊs̠) is a medieval Latin word that means both ’basking in sunshine’ and ‘delectable’. No word better describes our wine and the environment in which we produce it.
Sam Baptiste is the grower. Aaron Crey is the winemaker. Willy Sabo is the entrepreneur. Together, they are the dynamic owners of Apricus Cellars. Each and every bottle of Apricus wine is produced and bottled right here on site in the District Wine Village.
Stop by for a tasting or a glass of wine! From our light and refreshing Pinot Gris to our bold Meritage blend, you’re sure to taste the quality of our grapes in each and every bottle. Cheers!
