MOCOJO is a small vineyard and winery, family owned and operated by Kon and Dianne Oh. The winery’s delightful name is a combination of the initials of their children, Megan, Connor and Jacob, and the images inside the “O’s” depict the family’s experiences with growing Napa cabbage, roses, and finally, grapes.
Naramata wineries have a flair all their own, and the Oh Family is dedicated to keeping that tradition alive. From its beautiful, quaint tasting room, which overlooks Okanagan Lake, to the private outdoor tasting bar, a family atmosphere prevails at MOCOJO. The winery opened its doors in 2014, and seven short years after its humble beginnings, amazing progress was made. Now offering a wonderful portfolio of wines, MOCOJO has captured the best of both worlds: it remains a quaint, family-focused winery, but produces blends to rival those of much larger vineyards. Everything about this establishment is a labour of love for the Oh Family, and when visiting, it’s easy to see they take genuine pride in each phase of the process, from harvesting the grapes, to tending the vineyard and meticulously crafting great tasting wines.
Not surprisingly, MOCOJO was nominated for the Best of Penticton 2022 in the Best Winery category. Kon primarily works in the vineyard, while Dianne devotes her expertise to conducting wine tasting tours two days during the week, and all weekend! Kon also lays claim to the title of Deputy Chief of the Naramata Fire Department. In addition to their three children, the Ohs have a chocolate lab named Moose who turned 6 years old this year. Look for him on your wine tasting tour, because he’s sure to pop up somewhere!

- There are not any amenities, per se, at this winery, but interacting with Moose, if you’re a dog lover, is certainly an added attraction! And their view is one of the best in the valley!
