20 Destination Wineries in the Okanagan Valley
No list is complete without Mission Hill. It’s not just one of the top wineries in the Okanagan; it’s one of the best in the world. A magnificent architectural achievement, the Mission Hill Winery stands on the shoulder of Mt. Boucherie, its terraces and tower overlooking vineyards and the sparkling blue waters of Okanagan Lake. The Terrace Restaurant was named as one of the Top Five winery restaurants in the world by Travel + Leisure Magazine, and the wines produced here help define Canadian wine. Just recently, their Martin’s Lane Pinot Noir was named as Best Pinot Noir under 15 pounds at the Decanter Wine Awards.
There’s a reason Mission Hill is a repeat winner as Canadian Winery of the Year.
The wine tours offered by Mission Hill are likewise the best in the Okanagan, as knowledgeable guides take you through the vineyards, pair wine with food at The Terrace, and take you deep underground to the volcanic caves where Mission Hill wines are aged. Also, make sure you check out the Mission Hill event calendar. The winery hosts internationally acclaimed musical acts in its outdoor amphitheater overlooking Lake Okanagan; a concert here is a truly magical experience.
