We have spent the last 2 weeks of July 2014 in the Okanagan and we have been to about 20 different wineries - from the very popular like Mission Hill to the more obscure like Heaven's Gate. What I liked at Dirty Laudry: The patio overlooking the Kettle Valley was beautiful. They had a wonderful lobster dinner (a special today)... More

Very nice patio, you can buy a cold glass/bottle of wine, as well as an assortment of cheeses, crackers, deli items, etc. In our case we had Roch's lobster lunch (only offered on certain days), which was outstanding. As for the wine tasting, I much prefer to hear about the wines rather than the marketing concept, (e.g. dirty laundry); however,... More

My partner and I visited Dirty Laundry on a Tuesday afternoon to take park in the tour that was advertised on their website. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour which was led by the winery president, Bob Campbell. After the tour we decided to join the Bordello Wine Club and were given a sample of wine from a barrel in the...

Went there a few years ago, enjoyed the visit and the wine, especially the Bordello red. Maybe I am older, but this time we found the whole Bordello schtick kind of pretentious. Maybe if I was 25... But the Bordello red was wonderful.

Recommended by friends in Kelowna, we made Dirty Laundry our first vineyard stop and weren't disappointed. We particularly enjoyed the picnic lunch option - light and inexpensive. Although I can't vouch for the wine, I enjoyed the stories that went along with the tastings! The rest of my party enjoyed both!

We recently rented the Bordello house for a family trip to Summerland so visited the Dirty Laundry patio a few times. We especially enjoyed the "Roch's Lobster" lunch and live band. Everyone there was so friendly to us and our kids which I was pleasantly surprised about (I wasn't sure how happy everyone would be with having little ones there).... More

We literally stumbled upon this vineyard driving around on our self guided tour looking for awesome wines in this great part of the world. The views are captivating and the place and experience was well worth the stop...not to mention that each and every wine that we tried was excellent and ended up buying an entire case of random bottles....

This place has so much character and such a great vibe. The patio had a great view and was so beautiful with all the flowers. The wine was awesome! They have picnic baskets available as well as cheeses, meats and baguettes that you can "make a picnic lunch" to eat on the patio! Wish we had time to do that-... More

Dirty Laundry is an interesting winery to visit, more for the branding than for the wine. They've done an amazing job at the marketing of the wine and giving every bottle an intriguing design. The winery is actually quite a lot of fun to visit, but the wines were less impressive on their own merits.
