About the Wineries

  • Arrowleaf Cellars. The incredible view from this winery combined with Arrowleaf Cellars commitment to producing the most local product they can, sourcing 90% of their grapes from Lake Country make for a truly Okanagan wine experience.
  • Ancient Hill.  Old-world charm. We'll travel along  scenic backroads of farmland and horse ranches to arrive at this new and enchanting European-style winery. Once here, you'll be welcomed into a nouveau-rustic tasting room where wood is king and the wine noble - made entirely from grapes grown on the estate's vineyard.
  • Gray Monk Family Estate. Perched above Okanagan Lake with stunning panoramic views of mountains, vineyards and the lake, Gray Monk Estate Winery offers guests a true taste, or sip, of the Okanagan lifestyle.
  • 50th Parallel Estate  Set in the heart of Okanagan Wine Country in British Columbia, Canada, 50th Parallel Estate is a majestic 61 acre site near the shores of Lake Okanagan. The wine tasting room is inside the wine making facility and  is a stunning display of a modern industrial masterpiece in the heart of rural Carr's Landing.
  • Ex-Nihilo Vineyards  In designing the modern Mediterranean style winery, they focused on creating a winery that not only would reflect the meaning of Ex Nihilo and our wines, but also a destination where our guests can enjoy a truly unique Okanagan Valley wine experience. Treat yourselves to a Private Tasting** and really feel the vineyard vibe.
  • Intrigue Wines is fast becoming a favorite on the tour with its intimate boutique feel and fabulous wine shop full of great gift ideas.  Award winning wines and a pretty pink sparkling bubbly called I Do.
