The view from the upper patio is beautiful. We ate our dinner as the sun set. The food was excellent. Service was, too. Lemon Pudding Cake? One of the best desserts, ever! I hope it's back next season.

Nice view and good food. Next time I go back I will do the tour! The wine was fantastic! There was a bit of wait to order but the food was worth it.

Our family was having a reunion in Penticton during the Thanksgiving weekend and we thought we would treat ourselves to a special night out. Since the Hillside Estate Winery was nearby and having a Winemakers dinner entitled "Graze Among The Grapes", that was our choice. Little did we know that this was their marquee wine event of the season. We... More

This is one unique setting for a winery and bistro. The staff is super friendly, the wines were very good and varied and pared well for the Thanksgiving dinner at the bistro. This meal was fantastic, very well presented, and scrumptious! The views from the alpine style architecture is of the Valley and lake and is like a postcard! Highly... More

We had driven here from Kelowna first thing in the morning and found out that many of the wineries do not open until 11:00 am. Luckily we happened upon Hillside - which opened at 10:00. We were greeted by two very friendly staff members who were more than happy to provide tastings and answer all of our questions. There is... More

My family and I just returned from Naramata and had an excellent lunch on the upper deck at Hillside Winery. I have to admit, i was cautious as I have previously experienced, some years ago a lunch that was mediocre. However, the new chef proved himself and the meal was great. We had mussels, pan seared trout, and a elk... More

The title says it all - well almost. Hillside Estate is open later than a lot of the tasting rooms, which makes it an easy choice for the end of the day stop. It would be easy for the staff to be grumpy by that point, especially with people wandering in after a few (or alot) of tastings. But they... More

Our timing was just a bit off when we finally got to Hillside Estate Winery. We arrived between lunch and dinner so the menu was limited. The food we did order was delicious and we had a glass of the Old Vine Gamay Noir, which was amazing (we bought 3 bottles). Even though the food is a bit over-priced I... More

The set up of the wine tasting room can accommodate several people as there are two areas set up for tasting. Our server was really pleasant and knowledgable for pairing with foods. We bought two bottles. One note is that the tasting fee is 5.00 per person unless you buy a bottle. If you font buy the 5.00 goes to... More

Somalier did not educate us but it would have been difficult in the cramped quarters with the number of guests there. Nice rose.
