While everyone enjoys the wine and the view when they come to visit, the most asked question would have to be about our name...On a cool spring morning in 1929, a small crew from Okanagan Falls set off to a deserted mining camp some 16 miles away from home. Their mission: to dismantle an old wooden church and bring it back to Okanagan Falls.The plan called for a controlled blast of four dynamite sticks inside the church in order to "loosen the nails". Odd as it may seem, the explosion spared the wood from damage during dismantling.Save for losing the steeple, the plan succeeded. Now the 103 year old wooden church stands proudly in its second home of Okanagan Falls and is still an operating United Church. In keeping with its rather remarkable history, the church has since withstood the threat of two major floods, including the disastrous burst of the Okanagan Falls Dam in the early 1950's.In naming our VQA wines "Blasted Church" we celebrate the ingenuity of the initiative to move the church and honor those pioneers for their vision.

Blasted Church is so unique compared to other vineyards in the area because of the 'true' story of their birth. It's especially fun to listen to it when spun around each bottle of wine. Loved that we could buy several kinds of wine that weren't...More

It all starts with Rosie who is a wonderful host and great storyteller. The wines are impressive and the labels out of this world. It truly feels like an old church.

This is a small family winery with great service and wines. The winery has a 30 foot food truck which sells wood fired pizza. There are tables to sit outside. This is worth a visit. Great views too.
