8 Must-Visit Kelowna Wineries for Wine Enthusiasts

Some things go together: Drake songs and breakups, bread and butter, and Kelowna and wine. 

With over 40 wineries in Kelowna, it’s no secret that a wine tour should be at the top of your list. But with so many Kelowna wineries, how do you make your “all-star list” of must-try spots?

That’s where we come in. As official Kelowna wine experts, we’ve been around the block – or, shall we say – the winery. Using a holistic point system scale (that accounts for wine specialties, tasting room vibes, events, lake views, bathroom amenities, Instagrammable-ness and proximity to cute winery animals, to name a few), we’ve compiled our big eight wineries in Kelowna.

We’ve got you covered as a designated driver, so all you need are your winery hats and perhaps some electrolyte packets to survive the next day. So, let’s sip our way through the best wineries in Kelowna! 

Mission Hill Family Estate arch as can be seen on our Taste of Terroir Private Wine Tour

Mission Hill Family Estate Winery

Location: West Kelowna

Specialty: Reds, whites, blends

Vibe: Formal, historical, architectural

Mission Hill Winery is a museum visit and a winery rolled into one. The unique architecture, expansive lawn and giant amphitheatre make it a stop you can spend multiple hours exploring. There are endless stunning backdrops and panoramic views of the Okanagan Valley to enjoy as you walk around the greens.

Once inside the estate, you’ll transport back a few hundred years with a modern twist. Classic leather plush furniture and portrait-style paintings create a contrast against the contemporary window design and concrete architecture to fuse the old and the new for something unique seamlessly. 

The wine you can find here is some of the best in the country, thanks to the over 40 years they’ve dedicated to sustainable wine growth. You can find a diverse range of wines, from rich red blends to juicy whites – enjoy varietals like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and more. If you don’t believe us, check out the long list of official awards they’ve won.

Mission Hill Winery Kelowna is the perfect place to bust out that ‘fit deemed “too fancy for a normal day” without feeling too exclusive – nice jeans and pretty dresses feel at home here. 

There are several ways to enjoy the Mission Hills grounds. You can explore the property with a beautiful glass of wine, pose for pics in front of the exciting architecture, sit down for an incredible gourmet dining experience, or even enjoy an outdoor concert in their amphitheatre. 

The Hatch Winery found on the Wicked Wine Express West Kelowna Wine Tour

The Hatch

Location: West Kelowna

Specialty: Reds, whites, rosés, sparkling

Vibe: Quirky, welcoming, comfortable

Hatch Winery is our go-to recommendation for anyone who wants to enjoy a quality glass of wine and superb ambiance without dealing with any of the stuffiness some wineries have. This winery is equal parts trendy-cool and rustic-warm, with hand-painted signs, wood finishes and several antique tools hanging about. And with sweeping views of the Okanagan Valley, you have gorgeous things to look at indoors and out.

The Hatch staff (‘Hatchlings’) are super friendly and always happy to help you select the perfect tasting list. You can see personality in the pun-heavy wine names and stunning labels, but don’t let the lightheartedness fool you – these are high-quality wines. You can find award-winning reds, whites, and sparkling wines that put Hatch Winery on the map as one of the top 10 wineries in Canada.

The Hatch Winery greatly ensures a fantastic time the second you step onto its grounds. Stop by at the right time, and you’ll be able to catch some exciting events. If you’re picturing live acoustic, think bigger. You can find magicians, Reggae, comedy, rock and more to keep you entertained. 

CedarCreek Estate on a green hillside as seen on a Taste of Terroir Private Wine Tour

CedarCreek Estate Winery

Location: Kelowna

Specialty: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris

Vibe: Upscale, serene

CedarCreek Estate Winery exudes simple elegance and tranquillity to make the quality of the wine and food pairings the main characters. Picture upscale design, giant windows, bubbling fountains, smooth gray rock details, bright green trees and stunning lake views as your sommelier guides you through a thoughtfully curated list of exceptional wines.  

You can enjoy tasting from their stone farmhouse tasting room or outside with a lake view. Enjoy complex pinots, rieslings, and much more, with or without food pairings. The team offers different tasting experiences built around regions, wine types and preferences. 

CedarCreek Winery is a popular spot for upscale private events and weddings and houses one of the best restaurants in Kelowna. Whether you plan an event or visit for a memorable dinner, the Home Block Restaurant is an unbeatable spot for meals made with ingredients sourced from their gardens, local farmers, foragers, and ranchers.

Crown + Thieves Winery at sunset as can be seen on a West Kelowna Wine Tour

Crown and Thieves

Location: West Kelowna

Specialty: Small-production cult wine that pushes the limits of winemaking

Vibe: Unique, historical, playful

Potentially one of the most popular and well-known wineries in Kelowna, Crown and Thieves should not be missed. You can see the personality bursting from this winery the second you see the building – a faux-crumble-down facade is your first view as you step into this winery with bottles “made by scoundrels, and sipped by royalty.” These award-winning wines have names like “Pinky Blinders” and “Winemaker’s Wench” to lean into the theme. 

The award-winning Jason Parkes Customs winery isn’t the only thing within these walls. The Angel Share restaurant takes share plates to the next level with buffet-style sizes and big platters of food for family-style meals. Take a trip downstairs, and you’ll find a prohibition-style speakeasy that will transport you right into the game Clue. 

Entrance to the Summerhill Pyramid Winery with a green hillside

Summerhill Pyramid Winery

Location: Kelowna

Specialty: Organic and biodynamic wines, sparkling, Icewine

Vibe: Zen, Creative

When you see the giant sculpture of wine pouring into a glass, you’ve made it to Summerhill Pyramid Winery. This Kelowna winery is a great place to connect with people and spend a weekend enjoying the views with estate house lodging.

Summerhill Winery is an excellent option for people who prioritize sustainability, with vegan, organic and biodynamic options. True to its name, all of their wines are aged in their pyramid found on the grounds – this is what they believe to be their secret weapon in producing stunning wines. 

You can walk to the pyramid and conduct a self-guided tour of the mysteries and history. They even host equinox and solstice celebrations with group meditation, potlucks and dancing. 

Mt Boucherie Estate Winery with green field as can be seen on the West Kelowna Winery Tour

Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery

Location: West Kelowna

Specialty: Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, creative blends

Vibe: Modern, welcoming

The stunning and airy Mt. Boucherie has 360 views of the Okanagan Valley with giant wall-to-wall windows and a love for natural light. The modern design of the facilities creates a stylish and sleek ambiance that will make you want to stay for hours. 

Their tasting flight includes a selection of wine styles from Mt Boucherie, featuring multiple styles of white and red. You can also add a delicious charcuterie board to pair with your flight of five stunning wines. 

One of the main draws to this estate winery is the dining experience you can find here. The Modest Butcher can seamlessly pull off casual fare with shared plates and apps or fine dining with choice cuts of meat and fresh seafood. 

Arrowleaf Cellars at night as can be seen on a Vineyard Vixens Bachelorette Wine Tour

Arrowleaf Cellars

Location: Lake Country

Specialty: Riesling, Pinot Noir

Vibe: Elegant, timeless

Arrowleaf Cellars is the definition of style with modern-yet-classic designs and simple elegance. This Kelowna winery prioritizes sourcing hyper-local supplies of quality grapes, with over 90% grown in Lake Country and 10% in the Kelowna area. 

This Kelowna winery caters to all types of guests with a welcoming tasting room, an area for private and intimate group tastings, and a family-friendly picnic area.
