Latvia's first grape selector, Pauls Sukatnieks (1914-1989) lived at Apsītes.  The house has been restored and contains household and farm equipment, as well as Sukatnieks' library and office.  The garden that surrounds the house has local and introduced colourful plants and trees, including rare ones.  Visitors can look at the types of grapes that Sukatnieks developed, as well as his vineyard.  Alongside the homestead is an information stand about birdwatching in the Dviete wetlands.  You can tour the garden and house in the company of a guide.  There is space for relaxation and picnics, and the homestead organises work sessions and educational events.
