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.

We stopped here as an afterthought in a group that included 6 adults and 6 kids under age 7. Kids were hungry so we checked out the kids menu. The thoughtful staff suggested we order the kids meals right away then go do our wine tasting. They came down to get us in the tasting room when the food for... More

We had a very nice couple of visits at Hillside, which offers beautiful views of Okanagan Lake. We actually stopped by a second time to pick up more rosé, which impressed us on a a second tasting!
