Making great wines and providing a special place where people can enjoy them has been my dream and my life's work. Now, it's a reality, one that my family and I want to share with everyone who visits us high atop Mission Hill. We hope you'll think of our winery as a refuge from the hurried pace of daily life. We invite you to experience the nature and art of winemaking by walking our lush on-site vineyards and visiting our underground cellars. Sample fine wines by the glass, marvel at the vista and reflect on a process that's almost as old as time itself. We look forward to welcoming you at Mission Hill Family Estate.

This winery is of course grandiose and certainly a local’s pride and favorite. My husband and I visited the winery with our close friends. We certainly prefer the smaller boutique wineries. We are from California and frequent the Napa region regularly. We were disappointed by the touristy feel of this winery. The introduction movie room is a bit overdone and... More

Came across this location by sheer luck from having spotted it in some local tourist literate. It is like an Italian, posh vineyard. The buildings are stunning and the view across the lake makes you feel you could be in Italy. Their wine has won several awards but wine is a personal choice when it comes to taste. It is... More

We went to the winery and were amazed by the whole place. We decided to come back for supper and the whole experience could not have been better. The service, the view, and the meal all exceeded our expectations. When it was done the price was well within reason for what we had received. Now I have to go back... More

This is the second time I've been to Mission Hill and it really is a great place to get the "winery experience". After visiting many small wineries, it was a neat change to see the work and money that has gone into making this place a visual pleasure. We did the Discovery Tour and they do a great job, great...

I totally agree with a previous review by CanadianChick43! These people need a refresher course on service and competency. Service was hit and miss and so slow despite very few patrons there for supper. Never got bread until after main meal was served. No offer of second cup of coffee... And the list goes on! Very spectacular scenery but service... More

Went on my very first wine tour, which I found very informative and learn a few things about this beautiful area I call home. The view from Mission Hill winery is absolutely stunning!

We were actually staying in the W. Kelowna neighborhood where the winery sits at the top of the hill. An amazing entry informs you that this is a special place. A new art display had just been installed throughout the grounds by an Icelandic sculpture. The winery design is well done and appeals to subtle senses. We didn't feel as... More

We enjoyed the one hour Discovery Tour for a reasonable cost of $22.00 per person which included a tour of the grounds, basement where the barrels are kept & wine tasting. Jody our tour guide was very informative & fun. We then grabbed a glass of wine & enjoyed the beautiful scenery outside.

We stopped at Mission Hill for a quick look and dinner. The views were amazing! The grape vines looked very healthy and the grounds were immaculate. We did not take a tour this time, but plan to do that on our next visit. You can have a complimentary taste of a red and white wine in the tasting room, or... More
