Gray Monk Estate Winery


Respected pioneers in the BC wine industry, Gray Monk came onto the scene back in 1972. Their slogan Generations of Commitment is fitting, as it’s the province’s oldest family owned and operated winery. Founders George and Trudy Heiss recently celebrated three monumental milestones: 35 years of winemaking, 45 years of grape growing and 55 years of marriage. Their VQA title is well deserved!

Nestled in the windswept hills high above Okanagan Lake, this 5-star winery is truly a 5-sense experience. From the 180-degree lake view, to its wide selection of award winning wines and fine dining of Okanagan fresh seasonal dishes, Gray Monk does not disappoint.

Valley Vagabonds Inside Tip

Their white wines are some of the most coveted in the Okanagan with their reds well-priced and in keeping with lighter varietals best served lightly chilled on a hot-summer day.
