  • One of the more upscale wineries, Mission Hills offers stunning architecture and amazing views of the lake. It is one of the most developed Winery locations for the region with lots of land to simply explore separate from your wine tasting. Is the most expensive out of the areas I have explored in West Kelowna but they give generous pours if you're splitting with another person. There is a nearby restaurant / Bistro if you are hungry however they tend to be booked up for dinner so make a reservation in advance if you are interested. They have seats right next to the view overlooking the lake.
  • Had to fight for lakeview seat despite making a reservation...on a Monday. They accommodated us eventually though. Great view. Food was good too. Probably the only restaurant around that could do duck well. Pricey, but with decent portions. Really hot when they decided to open the blinders... The misters didn’t do much unless you were walking down the restaurant because of the hot air moving through. Servers were hit and miss. Some seemed quite cold (our actual server) while others were nice (water refill guy and the person who brought us food). A place to go if you’re trying to impress
  • Beautiful views and stunning architecture!! The landscaping and premises are very well maintained. As soon as you drive through the gates, you feel like you are in some sort of movie. The wine tasting experience is a must! We spent $15 to taste four different types of wines and got our money rebated for buying 2 bottles of wine. This is also a great place to pick up some gifts. They have very nice wine accessories and an assortment of aged cheeses, jams and spreads. The staff was knowledgeable and walked us through the different flavours of wine as well as providing personalized recommendations based on our taste. Highly recommended, especially if you have limited time to explore Kelowna.
  • Pros: + Unbeatable view; arguably the best in the Kelowna + Beautiful architecture Cons: - Way too commercialized. Prices are steep (for both tasting and actual bottle sales). - Servers are either too busy or rude. Unlike other wineries, Mission Hill does a rather poor job explaining the nuances of the wines you try. TL;DR: Mission Hill got too famous, and has become sort of a tourist trap. Great visuals, but substance is lacking.
  • What a great winery. Views are spectacular. After going here Its hard to go to another winery as this place sets the bar so high and makes every other winery pale in comparison. Highly recommend the tour with lunch. Food was amazing and large quantities and they were not cheap with the wine on the tasting. You get your moneys worth
