Painted Rock Estate Winery
Once home to the largest apricot orchard in the British Commonwealth, the land upon which Painted Rock lies is now some of the finest grape growing terrior in the Okanagan. But that's not all Painted Rock Winery is home to. The bluffs of this Estate also protect 500-year old Native pictographs that pay homage to the land and it's abundant history.
Planted in 2005, the vineyard produces amazing single varietals as well as delicious bordeaux blends that are earning international acclaim as "epic Canadian wines". This comes as no surprise to local wine enthusiasts and critics who have long coveted the SIPS from this family-run vineyard.
Soaring high above the Skaha Lake shoreline, Painted Rock has earned numerous awards including winning 2014/2015 InterVin International “ Winery of the Year” honours. A trip to the estate is a full-sensory experience punctuated by a larger than life bronze titled "Dead Reckoning" which befits the elegant simplicity of this legacy winery.

Valley Vagabonds Inside TipThis winery produces some of the best reds in the Valley. We highly recommend their Syrah for it's spicey and petulant attitude and if you can, bring home a bottle of their Red Icon to cellar. We also recommend traveling a little further up the road where a short hike will take you to the always spectacular Skaha Bluffs.
