Painted Rock Estate Winery used to be the home of the largest apricot orchard in the British Commonwealth. Known as Braeside Farms, apricots were harvested here from the early 1900s until the orchard fell victim to a gypsy moth infestation and cut down in the late 1980s.
Painted Rock purchased the property in 2004 and began planting in 2005.
