  • I mean if Brooke Shields likes it, it must be good…because that’s my barometer. I don’t go to a winery unless I think to myself, “what does the actress who played “customer” in The Muppets Take Manhattan think about this one?” Though seriously, if Tommy Wiseau from “The Room” supported something of mine, I’d put that on every advertisement. And I’m not reaching with that above statement—there’s a poster hanging in the tasting room claiming Shields is an advocate for the Winery. We visited House of Rose (a great name for the winery, by the way) based on the challenge handed to us from Camelot (the winery Camelot, I’m not suffering from dementia) to visit the other members of the Fab Five, also including Spierhead, The Vibrant Wine, and The View. From above, utilizing Google Maps, you’d be confused at the odd zig-zagging roads taking you from one location to another, and you would also be safe to assume the distances between said wineries would be easy to cross. What is not immediately apparent are the relative altitudes of these locations, with House of Rose at the base of the hill all other wineries rest on. Thus, a one-kilometer journey becomes four, and you can forget about walking. House of Rose is the easternmost winery, but one you really shouldn’t miss. Right up front, I loved the intimate nature of the location. It’s small with a modest tasting room. The architecture is rudimentary; you’d pass it by, dismissing it as a special needs school if it wasn’t for the dark metal rose towering over the entire premises (I initially typed “gunmetal,” but kept throwing up devil horns each time I read over it). The colors are effervescent and the personalities of the hosts are bubbling. The bottles are…wacky. They are wacky…I got no other words that work. One has a moose on the cover and is called “Rose-Eh.” Other names include Grapes With Benefits, Cool Splash, Hot Flash, Sweet Mystery, and A Senior Moment. The designs are cartoonish, reminding me of those found at Blasted Church. We still have a bottle of Cool Splash from our last visit, where we visited 60 wineries over the course of a week (bringing back 120 bottles). The wines at House of Rose also reasonably priced. And has no one mentioned that the location is technically named after the winemaker, who is ACTUALLY named Aura Rose. Is that not the best name ever? House of Rose is another great winery in a great wine region. It might not have the theme of Camelot or the psychedelic presentation of The Vibrant Wine, but it probably has the better wine.
  • Always friendly service, and great wines! I always really enjoy the personal touch, and I enjoy supporting a local family-run winery.
  • Great wines and service!
  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff. This is a small family business, so very different vibe from the large wineries in the area. Great wines! Tasting is (mostly) free. Pack a picnic and enjoy the grounds with a chilled bottle of wine. Great wines, including late harvest. Fun wine titles that make great gifts, "Hot Flash" "Grapes with Benefits" "Senior Moment" Be sure to take time to visit the Fab 5 wineries in the proximity.

Where to stay in Kelowna

Downtown is considered the most desirable area to stay, with several hotels backing onto Kelowna City Park and offering views over the lake. The southern lakeside suburb of South Pandosy and the inland neighborhood of North Central also offer a range of accommodations, which cater to those looking for a genuine taste of Kelowna. If you have a car, you can stay at one of the roadside accommodations in Dilworth-Enterprise or Leathead.
