Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, Oliver

3.9
Treat yourself to first-class food and wine at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Guided tours lead you through the whole winemaking process, from grapes to oak barrels. 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. With our custom trip planner, Oliver attractions like Burrowing Owl Estate Winery can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The views are stunning from just about anywhere on the property. We ate lunch here and it was amazing. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the beet risotto was to-die-for. It's a little pricey but...  more »

  • Magnificent views of the vineyard and the golden mile. Knowledgeable staff in the tasting room await you to sample the many wines available. Sonora room restaurant open for lunch and dinner. Eleven guest rooms each offering the best view around. Pool heated by solar heat a very good environmental addition as well
  • Beautiful winery with great views. Lovely wines, and great wine tastings. Really cute shop - the balsamic vinegar was surprising and excellent! Great stop while in the region.
  • What a magnificent winery. It almost feels like you are in a far away land. From the Spanish style villa to the road that leads up to the main building. These features all add up to for unique experience. I would highly recommend this stop for any wine aficionados, the big reds offered at this place rival the best of the Okanagan.
  • We arrived at the restaurant roughly a quarter to 1 in the afternoon on a holiday Sunday, asked if we had reservations which we did not. They would not be able to seat our party of 4 until 2pm. We waited by wandering around. Stopped back at 1:45 pm to see if a table was available, were told again 2pm sharp. Seated at 2:05. Were waited on fairly promptly. We ordered our food, 3 mains and 1 appetizer. Small portions, good flavor but the appetizer was little more than a plate of garnish and they charged $17 for something that looked like a "sneeze in a plate". They also charged absurd amounts for their own wine which they don't have to even ship or market it. I think they think this is downtown Vancouver and they are a five star restaurant which they are not.
  • Amazing food met with outstanding service. If I could given it a 6th star, I would have.
