WE INHERITED THE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE TO DARE  NEW THINGS

Our wines are bold and full of character like the pioneers who came west! Alberta’s summer storms, chinooks and extreme temperatures help develop the full fruit flavour of our estate wines.

D&A Gardens, or the Year Round Farmer's Market in Red Deer. Join us as we fully develop the fruits of our labor! Let us know which are your favorites!

Eugene Delidais
(1881-1969)
Eugene arrived in Canada in 1913 to homestead, though he had a very useful skill during prohibition, moonshine prducer. Once, at a train station dock in Elnora, Eugene used an auger and siphon to retrieve his product, right under the nose of a constable!

Eugene Delidais (1881-1969)
Eugene was an orphan faced with a choice, the church or the French Foreign Legion. He became a cavalry man for 17 years and was a gifted artist, forger and tailor. He immigrated to Canada to hone new skills as a homesteader, farmer and bootlegger!



Sodbuster

Our rhubarb white wine is crisp, leggy and fun to drink! Enjoy at our next party with family and friends.

Walter and Charlie Young (1911)
Our land was homesteaded by Johnny and Eva Young in 1907. Arriving with a team and wagon, they first lived in a tent and then a sod house. In 1913, the Youngs built a two story home for the family and discovered it was very expensive to heat so they all lived downstairs during the Alberta winters!



Farm Boy

Our saskatoon wine uses beautiful dark purple saskatoon berries to create a delightful blend that tastes like prairie sunshine! This wine pairs well with rich red meats and hearty stews like beef bourguignon.

Dave Delidais (1950)
Can't find Papa? Take a look in the orchard and you will find this humble farmer (without a shirt!) hoeing the saskatoons. When you see him, he is likely working alongside a special family member or a pet.


Fearless


Shop Now

Hearty orchard apple trees produce this bright and delicious apple table wine bursting with flavour! Will pair very well with any poultry or salmon-based cuisine. Also excellent just on its own.

Mrs. Ross (1885-1957)
Every once in a while, you hear of a woman who is fearless. Mrs. Ross homesteaded near D&A Gardens when her husband left to fight in WW1. With three children in tow, she "grabbed the reins" and kept farming. No power, no running water, farming with horses. She was one tough lady.

Sweetheart


Shop Now

Our rose is infused with wild strawberry notes from our farm-grown fruit making this the perfect summer sipper.

Mildred Delidais ( 1933-2013)
Mildred was as sweet as the priairie strawberries but don't let that fool you! A mighty force, Mildred worked caring for family, friends, and the farm. She was a true prairie girl, loving life on the farm, all from the comfort of her wool socks and gumboots.

Sassy Black


Shop Now

This is a balanced blend of our two classic wines: subtle Saskatoon married with the bright boldness of Black Currant. This wine pairis well with flavourful food and marinated meats.

In our historic orchards at Delidaid Estate Winery, crows help themselves to tantalizingly sweet berries - and so starts the timeless dance between these sassy black beasts taunting us from the fruit orchards.

Grand Trunk


Shop Now

With each sip of this black currant spirit, you can enjoy a little bit of the history that makes our prairie story unique.

A steam train crosses the trestle bridge at Trochu. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway built a line through section 24 where D&A Gardens developed. It forever changed the lives of the settlers. Built in 1911 and filled in with dirt in 1932. Why did they fill it in?
