Birds & Bees Organic Winery and Meadery

Phone: 1-780-657-2275

Contact: Victor & Elizabeth Chrapko
Email: info@BirdsAndBeesWinery.com

Being practitioners of sustainable, environmentally-friendly farming, the Chrapkos’ crops thrived using age-old, proven methods of crop rotation and judicious inter-seeding of crops whose root systems fix nitrogen into the soil. Thanks to having an uncontaminated soil base, the Chrapkos’ farm was easily certified organic in 1999. The rest, as they say, is history.

The Chrapkos started a multi-year experiment to discover the perfect mix of ingredients and a proprietary process that results in their signature smooth, high-quality wines. In 2005, Birds & Bees Winery and Meadery (formerly called en Santé Winery) became Alberta’s very first (and still ‘only’) Organic-Fruit Cottage Winery!

To our knowledge, Birds & Bees is the northernmost Organic Fruit orchard and Winery / Meadery in the world.

2015 - Formerly known as en Santé Winery.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
