  • This winery is a must to visit if anyone wants to go for wine tour! It is at the top of the mountains and thus presents complete view of Kelowna! Even though it was covered with snow but snow view was...  more »
  • We would give 5 stars for the view, landscape and architecture. 4 stars for the tasting experience as it felt very formal. We didn't enjoy any of the wines enough to buy. They charge $10 for tasting  more »
  • I always take people here to experience the views, beautiful architecture and feel of the place. Sadly the tasting experience does not measure up, it feels rushed and lacking in information or advice....  more »

  • Mission Hill is the crown jewel of Kelowna in my opinion. When we have out of town guests, we always take them to Mission Hill even if they do not drink wine. The views from this winery are incredible, the buildings are beautifully constructed and have a very authentic mission style. (In California there are real missions, this has a similar style with a modern twist.) The grounds are immaculate. From the second you drive in the gate, there is a serene and peaceful feeling. This is a must see for any age and interest when coming to Kelowna.
  • Beautiful Winery no doubt. Was SUPER disappointed with the treatment to just get a glass of wine and bite to eat on the patio. The Waitress/hostess Liana was super rude when she looked at our appearance with the sudden judgement and didn't want any part of us coming in to enjoy the view. ALSO it was mid day and there was barely anyone on the patio. (we are two 22 year old girls who live in Vancouver who came up for a wine tour weekend and to spoil ourselves) We were wine touring around the area and exploring and wanted to enjoy the view from up top for a late lunch and she looked at us as if we weren't going to pay? It felt as if we weren't worthy of their service. Felt really awkward and stupid for trying? She ignored our request and moved on and just helped the next couple in line who looked wealthy and "willing to pay" and let them right through with the same request. Was defiantly a downer for the day since we work really hard and wanted to splurge that weekend, being one of the places we wanted to enjoy and indulge, and it was a slap in the face. Will only tell people to go to see the sights but don't bother eating or wine tasting service is uptight and rude.
  • First of all, the views from this winery are second to none. Overlooking the Okanagan Valley, the Mission Hill winery was a treat to visit. We did not tour the vineyard, but rather had an enjoyable lunch in the restaurant. The service and the wine (of course) were excellent. I would certainly return again.
  • Pretty views but not the most approaching winery we visited during our time in Okanagan. Seemed a little pretentious for our liking however maybe that's the kind of clientele they're looking to attract! To each their own!
  • On Saturday July 27, 2017, a group of us went to Mission Hill Winery in Kelowna BC for a paid tour. The tour costed over $17 dollars per person and each participant would get to taste two wines in addition to a guided tour. To our dismay, the guide used the same glass for the tasting of one white and one red---both were low-end wine, without even providing any water to clean the glass. With due respect, it seemed that all they wanted to accomplish during the tour was to rush us through and move on to another group. We strongly felt that to the so-called the best winery in Canada, the wine tasting event was disrespectful to their guests and to the wine industry. At the end of the tour, we were given $5 coupon to shop in their store, yet we found out later on that the coupon was applicable to certain items only.
