Join us on the Lake Country Scenic Sip Wine Trail and indulge in the stunning beauty of Okanagan Lake Country. Picture rolling hills, epic views, and vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. It's the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable wine adventure. We'll introduce you to the tastiest wines that British Columbia has to offer, showcasing the region's unique terroir.

Our carefully curated Lake Country Wine Tour takes you to four award-winning wineries, where you'll be treated to delightful wine tastings. Whether you're a fan of reds or whites, our mixed portfolio of wines will satisfy all palates. Along the way, you'll have the chance to stroll through picturesque vineyards and experience the ambiance of the barrel rooms, immersing yourself in the art of winemaking.


We'll begin our journey at Arrowleaf Cellars, a winery with a spectacular setting and a reputation for producing exceptional wines. Arrowleaf is a family-owned and operated winery founded in 2001 by the Zuppiger family. In 1986, Joe and Margrit Zuppiger and their five children immigrated to Canada from Switzerland, where they had been operating an organic orchard and dairy farm. After ten years in the dairy business in Alberta, they moved to the Okanagan. They purchased Suncrest Vineyard and, two years later, the Carter Farm, the current location of the winery. They grew grapes for Gray Monk Estate Winery for the first five years.

Their eldest son Manuel returned to Switzerland to complete an apprenticeship program in winemaking. After his studies, Manuel gained additional industry experience by working as a cellar hand for three seasons. In the meantime, construction of the winery building began, and Arrowleaf Cellars officially opened its doors in 2003. Arrowleaf became the second winery in Lake Country. They started out modestly, producing six wines: Auxerrois, Barrique, Pinot Gris, Bacchus, Merlot, and Zweigelt, for 3,500 cases.

Arrowleaf now has 16 acres on their estate and oversees another 30 acres. The Arrowleaf wine portfolio produces over a dozen wines yearly, with an annual production of approximately 16,000 cases. The tasting room, designed by award-winning architect Robert Mackenzie, opened in 2014.

Next, we'll take you to Intrigue Wines, a charming family-owned winery known for its award-winning wines crafted from hand-picked grapes. Enjoy a tasting of their premium wines while learning about their winemaking philosophy.

Intrigue Wines was established in 2008 when two families joined to explore their wine passion. A winemaker, an accountant, an internet entrepreneur and a healthcare advisor - all pursuing their fascination and curiosity for wine.

Finally, we'll visit the first winery established in Lake Country, Gray Monk Estate Winery, where you'll soak up the stunning lake views from their patio and taste their delicious award-winning wines, including their namesake, Pinot Gris.

Gray Monk Estate Winery was established in 1972 by George and Trudy Heiss. Working with the Heiss family, Gray Monk is now proudly owned and operated by Andrew Peller Limited.

The Gray Monk Estate comprises 75 acres of lush vineyards overlooking Okanagan Lake and premium grapes sourced throughout the Okanagan Valley to produce some of the world's finest wines.

To finish, we'll visit Ancient Hills Estate Winery, a boutique winery in the beautiful Ellison area of North Kelowna near the Kelowna International Airport. Ancient Hill specializes in small-lot, tasty wines. Their wines are made entirely from grapes grown in their vineyard and processed on-site in their European-style winery.
