  • Small winery but very very good Malbec if you’re lucky get it but it is most likely sold out! Very close tasting to the Argentine ones. My fave Malbec from Canada!
  • You know you're at a family winery when you get here. I was greeted by a lovely dog and went through my tasting with Deb and Brian. They really care about you and your tastes and have great insight into the wine world. PLUS the wine is lovely...something for everyone.
  • Like both expensive and cheap wines, I’ll try to squeeze all the goodness I can out of this review. The difficulty comes not from the location being inferior in any way, only that it’s so unfortunately average. Deep Roots is the equivalent of Proxima Centauri. Yes, I’m talking about the red dwarf 4.24 light years away that recently came under focus after the discovery of potentially habitable planets and I forgot this is a wine review, and none of you care. The point is that Proxima is a small member of a star system (like that drummer with no beard in ZZ Top ironically actually named Frank Beard) that also containing two brighter stars like our own (the Alphas, or if you prefer, Billy and Dusty). Given their luminosity, it is impossible to perceive Proxima unless you have a good telescope and squint really, really hard. Brighter neighbors similarly overwhelm Deep Roots, and brighter not because of size, but more from originality and overall appeal. On its own, Deep Roots has a great name with a matching impressive logo. It’s easy to reach with ample parking, and has a deceivingly simple exterior leading into a cozy if not (more appropriately) intimate tasting room. Read between the lines, it’s small. My girlfriend and I were on vacation through Okanagan wine country. Over six days, we visited sixty wineries. That’s sixty wineries, not an exaggeration. We ended the trip with 120 bottles acquired. Alas, none were from Deep Roots. We tried, taking in their offered samples, but despite the amazing view of the lake (which you can find at nearly all the wineries), we found little noteworthy with Deep Roots. I mean seriously, I took video and photos, and had to reference them to pull whatever I could into this review. It’s shocking considering the winery’s history—supposedly, Deep Roots is called that because it’s one of the oldest in the region, tracking back several generations of the same family. And there are claims they sell a great Syrah, and everyone should please give them a chance because no two palettes are the same. I adore Silver Sage so don’t take my taste buds as gospel. We only tried them because my girlfriend and I practically had to avoid them while finding the entrance to the more interesting Elephant Island around the corner. And yes, I just said the fruit winery that resembles a hippie commune is more interesting than the classic winery with a corkscrew symbol. But did we regret our visit? Absolutely not…the whole point of visiting regions like Naramata is to be spontaneous, to go where you weren’t expecting. I can find Hillside and Therapy wines anywhere in the province. Deep Roots was not on the agenda—we rolled down the hill, forgot to brake and stumbled into a winery. Only in Naramata can that happen, and Deep Roots is worth a try for no other reason. However, if you are one of those insisting on planning every moment of a journey (Mom), than Deep Roots may not be high on your list.
  • Small cozy place. Friendly people, good wines.
  • The tasting with Will was amazing! Such a great time. Amazing views and amazing wine!!
