This is a small winery but offers something unique. The artisan bread is amazing! We were offered a taste of each kind paired with the appropriate wine. A warm loaf, a piece of local cheese and a bottle of their wine would make for a heavenly picnic. The woman was not that friendly at first but treated us very nicely... More

My girlfriend and I were on vacation through Okanagan wine country. Over six days, we visited sixty wineries. You can follow our various locations with this disclaimer. That’s sixty wineries, not an exaggeration. What’s the biggest lesson to take back from it? For one, don’t feel pressured to buy wine from every winery, because you end up trying to squeeze... More

The winery is small but pretty. There is fresh artisan bread made daily but you did have to get there early. The man who I think is the owner was so incredibly rude! From the moment we opened the door he was yelling to shut the door. They had a dog that could wander through the front door when it... More

Great winery. The owner treated us to great wine, paired with in house sourdough bread and lots of laughter. It was our last stop on the wine tour and one of the best.

More than an hour before the sign said it was closing we were driving down the lane to taste. Someone looked out the door, walked away and came back with a Closed sign to stick on the door without even looking us in the eye. Their loss. We spent a few hundred dollars at each place we stopped at. I... More

We were on a wine tour with a group of 20 people, we asked our driver to stop for their world famous bread that they make onsite, this was my 4th time at the winery and we have always done a tasting, on this trip we only wanted the bread. We all went in and bought them out of bread,... More

This was a destination for a third visit. We drove from Kelowna and the Naramata Bench all the way south to end our trip is Osoyoos so that we could go back to this winery. The owners have made the wine tasting experience unique with pairings of the on site breads that are created in their bakery. Be quick, put... More

First time at this vineyard/tasting room. It was busy when we arrived but the hostesses were friendly and welcoming. The wines were pair with 4 different types of sour dough bread. The bread was delicious - that nice sour dough chewiness with a nice crust. Each type of sour dough had its uniqueness - Asiago, Brie and pear, and 2... More

We have visited this winery twice(last year and 2016). Great experience with the owner Murray and the staff. Very attentive and knowledgable about the wines that they produce. Love the bread that they also pair with the tasting. Great reds that remind me of Napa!

Love that they pair their wine samples with their bread. Their bread is amazing just make sure you go early because they do sell out every day. Their tasting is $5 for 5 wines but it is waived with the purchase of a bottle of wine.
