Very generous on the wine tasting. We enjoyed all the wines immensely, they had a great deal on. Buy 1 get 1 free. So we bought a case. Great deal. Very knowledgeable owner. Friendly also. Will be back to buy more next time in the area.

I highly recommend this winery. The service was friendly. We tried all their wines - around 15 at no charge. Both the reds and the whites were lovely. We bought one case and got one free. Best deal in the Okanagan. Do not miss!

Nice wine, complimentary tasting, and a great patio. If you are coming to this part of Summerland to taste wine, our three recommendations would be: Heaven's Gate, Dirty Laundry, and Thornhaven.

We spent a week exploring Okanogan wineries, one day of which was Summerland. We had brought our own picnic, and stopped at Heaven's Gate as they welcome "BYO food" picnics. Absolutely beautiful spot with panoramic view, lovely patio, and fabulous 2012 rose. Owner was helpful, knowledgable, and wines were excellent. Very friendly new winery. We bought several bottles of rose;... More

We stopped here on a whim, driving by. Very nice and knowledgeable service. We ended up purchasing the Rose 2011, a blend. Wish we had bought more when we were there; it is not available at the BC liquor stores...only select private.

we liked the friendly atmosphere of this newer winery. The tasting was very nice and we ended up buying a box of our favorite. If you are into e-books check 'High Tea With Castro' on Kobobooks.com out.

Heaven's Gate Estate Winery is sure to amaze. The wines carried by Diane & Andy are fabulous, and they are paired well with their surroundings. A beautiful patio out front looking over the lake is a great spot to relax on a warm fall afternoon with a glass of BC wine.

We really liked the wine dog I believe Maggie? was super sweet. This is a newer winery and we might go back. It looked to be a beautiful location, just hasn't maximized its potential yet.
