Does anybody happen to know what is going up there? Looks as if the access takes off of Okanagan Hills Blvd after the first switch.

What else could it be? Winery? They're shaving the top of the hill quite aggressively.

looked it up last summer super rich dude out of the coast has a huge winery system in the ok valley and is building a 600 acre winery and I believe there will house ;lots for sale also eventually
the amount of time spent there so far and high dollar equipment they have had there its huge $$$ operation for sure

the guy who owns it is Frind he started the internet dating site called kettle of fish and sold it for almost $600 million


Actually called. "Plenty of Fish" I think you are referring to the fish store in downtown Vernon. :)

There are no permits for houses...and actually none for Vineyards yet.

ALL the properties including beside the Rise and ALL below Bella Vista belong to Frind...no Gretzty or any other.

That's what my sources have told me (at least the properties on Bella Vista that are currently being worked on).
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

the property left of the rise about 500 acres is Frind the small 4 property's on bella vista belong to a group of east Indians that used them as orchards and growing vegetables and some of it was just vacant for last few years
nothing to do with Frind that i can establish but who knows? with the HUGE amount of money being spent on the 4 propertys on bella vista maybe Frind is behind it

One needs to talk to the people that live on Bella Vista.

ALL have been purchased by Frind. It's his people prepping the plots. Correct HUGE money. He is going at this believing scale is the answer. Some estimate he will own 10% of total BC Vineyards when complete.

That's what some of the previous owners that were bought out are saying - at least that's my understanding.
