50th Parallel Estate Winery
Nestled near the shores of Okanagan Lake, this 60-acre state-of-the-art winery is owned by Curtis and Sheri-Lee Krouzel from Alberta. Specializing in Pinot Noir, 50th Parallel winemaker Grant Stanley and his team have racked up numerous awards for their most popular red and aromatic white wines.
Even if you’re not a wine enthusiast, the building’s architecture alone is worth a visit. Playing off the name, all the prominent site lines and material are in parallel with each other. Length and linearity are common themes with only concrete, metal, glass and wood used to complement each other providing the perfect pairing of old world tradition with new world presentation.
