  • Arrived around 5 for wine tasting and food. Great food that paired well with the wine. Views from the patio are amazing  more »
  • Shocking discovery. $10 per person to SAMPLE 3 wines or $20 for 6. No cheap wine here. Some are $60 a bottle. Sorry I am not that into wine.  more »
  • Our last visit was in October 2011 and we had their food pairing tasting. It was a great discovery and our best tasting of the week end . The winery was not part of Andrew Peller group in that time. T...  more »

  • Have enjoyed their wines before, but this was our first visit to the winery. Came early in the day, but decided to return in the afternoon for a late lunch. Busier time when we came back, but they were more than accommodating, found us a great table. Enjoyed a Charcuterie with our wine tasting - perfection. Really. Have paid much more in Vancouver for a lot less on the board. And the wines were everything and more. Decided to join their wine club, as the value was undeniable. There are many great wineries in the Okanagan, and we have our favourites. Black Hills is beyond a doubt now at the top of our list.
  • Awesome experience! The tasting fee initially caught us off guard as its just not what we are used to, but once seated and working our way through the tasting we were so glad we stopped! My husband and I shared the full flight tasting for $20 which was perfect. We got more than just a sip each as its a 2 oz pour this also allowed us to pace our tasting experience which gave us time to truly get a good sense of the wines. Each wine was served in its approoriate stemware which adds to the experience. Our server Wayne was Awesome! Very knowledgeable and helpful. He provided additional recommendations of other area wineries that carry wines that suit our palate. Will definitely be back!
  • We would never go back to this winery. The wines were nice but the service awful! We arrived immediately after a small tour bus and there was a marked difference on how they were treated and how we were. We were given the choice for a $10 tasting of 3 wines 2 oz each or $20 for 6 tastings of 2 oz each. As is customary with most of the other wineries in the region, the tasting fee was not waived upon a purchase of their product. As my husband was driving, he didn't want to consume too much alcohol so we opted to share the $10 tasting. We were then lead to a table in the sun on their patio, it was 35 celcius out, we asked if we could sit at a table in the shade. We told the available table was reserve in 1/2 hour so they were unable to move us. About 5 minutes later the 2 people at the next table asked if they could be moved to the same table we have been denied. They were immediately moved to that table. I can only surmise that as they had ordered some food, they were deemed more worthy than us. We were then served the 2 white wine tastings, when my husband commented on how exceptionally warm the white wine was, he was told in a very snotty manner that is intentional so we could smell the aroma better. As we were now uncomfortably warm, we quickly tried our red wine tasting and left. This was by far the worst experience at any of the wineries we have visited. There are so many wineries in this region with wonderful wines and friendly staff that I would recommend skipping this one and trying one of the others that are going to appreciate your patronage.
  • We attended Black Hills Estate Winery as we always do whenever out in the area, it never, ever fails to completely blow us out of the water!! This trip we took 2 young adult newbies to the whole concept of wine-tasting experience & started our trip with Black Hills, knowing it would be an amazing experience, yet again, Black Hills, you are truly fantastic! Our wine guru this time was Gord - who absolutely ROCKS!!!! You made our experience with our young guests a truly memorable one & we thank-you from the bottom of our hearts! See you next year!
  • Beautiful location. Incredible wines. Five stars all the way.
