    Such a cute winery! I personally love their Bling canned sparkling wine, and enjoyed every wine I sampled. Very friendly staff and super approachable!

    So Amazing! Love the Pinotage reserve, but they are all fantastic. Super relaxed atmosphere and authentic Okanagan vibe

    A shoe symbol, haven’t seen that before. Okay, I have, though with The View, it actually makes sense—a pleasing romantic tale permitting The View to claim that icon and outplay the others. And it is romantic, almost saccharine—the type of scene that if in a movie, you’d want to punch the leads in the face and walk out of the theater. But in real life, you tilt your head like a curious puppy and cry “Awwwwww” until just before running out of breath. So, they get a pass on the shoe, but not on the name. I mean, The View, is it owned by four women who spend their time away from the winery discussing social, political, and pop culture topics with a tendency to ignore observable evidence? The location doesn’t benefit from a particularly great view. The View is a member of the Fab Five, shared with SpierHead, Vibrant Vine, Camelot, and House of Rose, and they all sport superior vistas. But The View is not inferior in any way as a contrast. It’s just unfortunate that both Vibrant Vine and Camelot all enjoy better themes in better-looking locations, and thus are more desirable to visit. The View I would argue may be the better winery. The tasting flight is cheaper. The hosts are knowledgeable. There’s a lot of variety to choose from including dessert wines. And to saddle that selection with ciders is positively inspired. The location is roomy with the shoe theme carrying across the entire location. It’s a little peculiar the building is effectively split in half, with one side divided by a sliding door, leading to a rustic, more sanitary area featuring another tasting area and raw, unfiltered production equipment. I walked into that area twice, worrying it was off limits, but no one stopped me. On both visits, this colossal space was empty. The main store is also narrow, with not a lot of room around the tasting area for larger groups. As for the wine, as I said, it’s vast, over twenty offerings with many unique to this winery. On our first trip, we picked up a 2012 Distraction Frizzante, their sparkling wine, a surprise given my opinion of those (it’s low). It was on that trip where my girlfriend and I had hit up 60 wineries over a week, bringing back 120 bottles. But we loved the location so much, that when we lead our friends on a similar journey only a few weeks back, we visited The View again, this time snagging a truly distinctive fortified white wine. I never even knew there was such a thing a white wine port/fortified. I like what The View offers. It’s adorable in its theme, admirable in its selection. I can’t speak for the cider, as I’m not generally a fan, but it’s a cool alternate reason to visit. The View is the reason you hit up all members of the Fab Five. There’s no one location that missteps. I may find two others better, but The View is the one where I may respect their history and their owners more. I haven’t met them, don’t know them, but after visiting and drinking, I kind of think I do, which only this winery has been able to do.

    Not very well organized. The place was not busy yet our party of 4 had to wait almost 10 minutes to do a tasting. Staff was friendly enough but they need a better process to deal with groups. Also annoying that it's cheaper to buy their product at the liquor store than where it's made.

Where to stay in Kelowna
