West Kelowna Wineries often get looped in with Kelowna Wineries on wine tour stops because they are located just over the bridge from Kelowna. Yet, West Kelowna is its own municipality that offers stunning lake views from a different direction.

The Westside Wine Trail is home to some of the most time-honored and finest wineries in the Okanagan. Don’t forget to read all about the Kelowna Wine Region where you will find tasting tips, wine tours, and more.

As well as tasting one-of-a-kind terroirs that come from a fusion of traditional techniques and technology from the near-future, you can lose yourself in time here. Mission Hill’s ancient Greek and Roman-inspired architecture encompasses intertwined courtyards, theatres, halls, passages, and loggia that wind through the grounds and immerse you in soul-soothing escape.

Mission Hill is no ordinary wine tour stop, but an expansive experience you should take the whole day to enjoy. We love it so much we wrote a full stand-alone story on Mission Hill Winery.

Black Swift Vineyards

Black Swift is operated by JPC, the same group of taste aficionados who run local favourites Truck 59, Crown & Thieves, and The Hatch, so you know you’re in for a treat. They’re all about getting the most quality out of a single vineyard with small batches of meticulously crafted perfection.
Part of the Westside Wine Trail, this eccentric space was inspired by the high-flying aspiration and synergy of the rare Black Swift bird. They’ve fulfilled this strangely specific vision well, with vintages that command attention and demand reflection… as well as a whole gaggle of bird puns.

Tasting Fees:

$15 per guest, waived with the purchase of a single bottle.

Amenities:

  • Ludicrously fun brand-spanning multi-stop wine tours with The JPC Trail.
  • Live music with Swift & Slow Serenades, coming soon.

Dog Friendly:

Yes, but only on the patio and picnicking areas.

Crown & Thieves

Ever the lovers of a themed affair, JPC have suspended reality and now invite you into their wretched lair of scum and villainy… where for some reason they serve top-notch wine. We’re all for it, the costumes, tongue-in-cheek roleplaying staff, whacky props, and host building that appears to have been lain to siege all create a totally unique atmosphere that is riotously good fun.

Not content to settle for just showmanship, the wines (and cocktails) you’ll find here truly encapsulate their slogan ‘made by scoundrels, sipped by royalty.’

Tasting Fees:

Enquire through their website.

Amenities:

  • Weekly events like Cocktails and Charcuterie at their Broken Hearts Club Speakeasy.
  • On-site dining in the London-themed patio of the Salt & Thieves.

Indigenous World Winery

Taste a fruit that has supported the Syilx First Nation people for over 10,000 years at British Columbia’s only 100% indigenous-run winery. We think it’s a huge shame that this is a unique setup, but what we all can do is pay them a visit and give our support by purchasing a bottle (or three) of their carefully tended muscat wine – which just so happens to be absolutely delicious.

So delicious, in fact, that Indigenous World have been winning best varietal awards since 2013. You’ll kick yourself if you don’t find out how millennia-long traditions of harmony with nature are carried into the modern industry, and you’ll kick yourself even more if you don’t taste the fantastic results.

Tasting Fees:

Enquire by calling (250) 769-2824.

Amenities:

  • Sample First Nations-inspired cuisine at their restaurant.
  • Keep an eye out for future expansions, which are rumoured to include entertainment facilities and on-site accommodation.

Dog Friendly:

West Kelowna Winery Mt Boucherie

Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery

This staple of Kelowna’s viticulture community gets its name from Mount Boucherie, the extinct stratovolcano partly responsible for depositing nutrients into the soils here over 60 million years ago. These minerals can still be tasted in the terroir of every Okanagan-grown glass. The volcano’s namesake winery does a good job of upholding this reputation, with some of the best views, facilities, and award-winning flavours to be found in the valley.

Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery have recently upgraded their previously understated facilities into a 15,000 square foot luxury wine experience centre. Let that number sink in for a second. With a restaurant, markets, tasting rooms, guest accommodation, and heaps of event facilities, word on the grapevine is that Kelowna has a new one-stop wine wonderland on its hands.

Tasting Fees:

$10 per guest.

Amenities:

  • The Modest Butcher meat-centric restaurant.
  • Four different luxurious spaces hireable space for private events, corporate bookings, and small exclusive dining gatherings.

Off The Grid Organic Winery

This earth-kind destination is one for the hippies amongst you. However, if you’ve never considered dreadlocks or hugging a tree, their totally sustainable permaculture vineyard and its products are still an inspiring sight. As are the views of the forested alpine hills from their beautiful grounds. Oh, and they’ve somehow persuaded their goats to live on the roof, if you’re into that sort of thing. (Sounds somewhat similar to these Goats on the Roof!)

All joking aside, this organic winery is smart about everything they do, and their commitment can be felt in every bottle. The sun nourishes both their vines and their power grid – and the ethical treatment of their farmyard animals sure has raised a friendly bunch!

Tasting Fees:

Find out when you make your reservation here.

Amenities:

  • Pizzeria Food Truck serving up fresh slices lavished with local sustainably-sourced toppings.
  • Super friendly farm animal menagerie.
  • Live music every Thursday, plus season yoga and other events.

Dog Friendly:

Yes, as long as you keep them on leashes.

The Hatch West Kelowna Winery

The Hatch

The Hatch is yet another zany brainchild of JPC, who bought you Black Swift and Crown & Thieves further up the list. The same commitment to light-hearted artistic triumph and giddy fun-times is present here, but this time around it takes the form of a modest neon-decked cabin high up in the Okanagan.
The Hatch is a place of equality, so don’t even bother trying to book ahead. Simply turn up and let the good vibes envelop you. Their delicious wines come in bottles graced with cartoons so charming and creative that we were tempted to peel a few off and scrapbook them.

Tasting Fees:

Only $10, which is waived whenever you buy a bottle.

Amenities:

  • Regular student nights, as well as live music and other entertainers.
  • One exciting stop on the JPC Trail.

Dog Friendly:

Yes, you can even bring them into the tasting room if they stay on-leash.
