After seeing the facility, head up to the tasting room to try a few wines and enjoy the view overlooking the valley. The winery has a big reputation, and may seem a tad busier and less intimate than some of the smaller, family-owned operations in the vicinity; try to avoid weekends if you don't like crowds.

  • I actually was not quite as much a fan of the wine tasting area as I have with some other wineries, but I think that's just subjective - there were too many "non-wine" sales in the tasting room. I rea...  read more »
  • We visited here while on a bicycle winery tour for a quick tasting.The winery is in a spectacular location. The views are absolutely stunning. The staff was very friendly and polite. The winery has a bit of a "resort" feeling to it with a big pool area, complete with loungers, tables/umbrellas and a hot tub. That may be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for.
  • This review is for the restaurant alone as we did not do a wine tasting. It is only memorable in that it is forgettable. The chef is trying very hard to create something unique, but he is doing just that: trying. What really upset me, and cost this review one star, was the fact that I was charged 2$ for a bread refill, which I was not aware of until we paid the bill. 2$ is not a big deal, but just enough to upset us on principle. At this price point the food is good but not outstanding. For a truly exceptional meal, drive 30 minutes and head over to the Vanilla Pod @ Poplar Grove.
  • I can't believe the audacity of this business....they plowed over the last breeding site for burrowing owl in BC so they could plant grapes for your dining pleasure. This is the 21st century-we should know better. I encourage everyone I can to boycott all BC wines as they're grown on the last of our precious Great Basin Desert ecosystem and Burrowing Owl Vineyards is the most graphic example of our selfish arrogance. They should be charged under the Species at Risk Act. So sad... (yes, they donate some paltry funds to it's recovery but does that excuse the deplorable activities of the recent past?)
  • not a wine drinker so can't comment on their wines, but the service and food in the restaurant was fantastic. for the non wine drinkers try their lemonade to drink.
  • Ordered a vegan dish Ask only to put some vegetables with some of there lentils in olive oil. They forgot our olives appy dish.They brought the smallish entre vegan dish. Tiny amount of asparagus plus 1 cup of lentils l.The manager asked if we had reservation for a vegan meal? Really the first question to ask a customer. What a terrible experience and there pretentious attitude is inexcusable.
