MISSION HILL WINERY
What a stunning Winery Mission Hill was!
Even if you are not a wine drinker, I would say to come here, just to see the Winery, and to enjoy the incredible views from where it is located.
They do have Wine tours, check the website, I can't comment as I didn't do it.
We had a look at the shop, thought it was pretty expensive, and enjoyed the surroundings. The architecture is worth seeing, and there is an old Bell on display with a history to it.
Father Pandosy Mission
"Restoration Plaque at Entrance"
"Living Quarters for the Brothers"
"Father Pandosy's Chapel"
This Chapel seems very small!
This building uses round logs and an alternate notching cornering method - different than the other buildings which were constructed of sawn logs and dove tail cornering.
This building was moved to this site from what is now the Guisachan Ranch. McDougall was born in 1827 at Fort Garry, came West and married a native woman, hauled freight for Hudson's Bay Company for 20 years and then settled in this valley and operated a trading post.
"Dove Tail Notching"
This is a close up of the notching method used on most of the buildings on the grounds
