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.

The Chase Wines is Lake Country’s newest vineyard having just opened July 1 2017.  Its rustic styles combines with modern industrial to create one of the most beautiful tasting rooms on the Scenic sip wine trail. Chef Travis Ashley prepares amazing gourmet entrees and fabulous food pairings.

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.
