The winemaker will give an excellent tour of his processes, his reasons for choosing specific wines, and his barrel room. The tour serves as a prelude to dinner ( Probably need a group for a dinner. It will be catered in.) Wines are excellent and the Riesling has won many awards. This is a young winery and it is moving... More

We had read in the Vancouver paper about this beautiful tasting room. The location and property are lovely, but don't think the wine doesn't match up. Lovely red and a great bubbly! worth the trip in an area full of wineries.

Now this is a really neat winery. Loved the masks in their display cases. Really cool, and they are First Nations masks. The wines are really really good here. Really loved one of the dessert wines, and I was like in heaven. They nicknamed it liquid gold and I can see why.So delicious. A must to go here

Thanks so much Alfred for your review! It sounds like you tasted and enjoyed our Riesling Icewine - a Canadian delicacy for sure. It is a lesser known wine in our portfolio as we make under 100 cases a year so we are so happy to hear you discovered it at the winery. We are very proud of the art... More

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Tantalus Vineyards and was greeted by a courteous and charismatic staff member (Mike). The tasting experience was excellent but what I was most impressed with was the knowledge that Mike shared about each different wine, such as taste and growing specifics. The location and environment is well worth a stop on your wine... More

Went to tantalus for a tasting and was surprised to see ice wine tasting for a very reasonable price so while sampling ice wine staring out the window at there very nice view of the valley I couldn't have been more satisfied. Thank you very much.

The wine here is certainly good, but they don't have anything that stands out or sets them apart from the other wineries in the region. If you're doing a tour certainly worth a quick stop though.
