Nice place, good wine but I always give 2 chances to a place, It was my first time and I would says the service was ok. It could be better services, I didn't feel my visit was appreciated. I was with my friends and the comments was reciprocal.

Not the friendliest people working there and their tasting fees are the highest we encountered and the pours were not large

It's bad enough that Black Hills' wine tasting fees are among the highest we paid in the Okanagan region. But we were rather shocked that the fee was not credited toward the cost of the bottle we purchased to take home. We have paid many, many tasting fees over the years, and without exception the fees were credited toward the... More

While I didn't enjoy the wines I understand it's personal taste. My low rating is because it was over priced. $20 for a tasting of 6 wines. It wasn't explained very well before I said I'd do it. I thought it came with food and unfortunately had to pay for an expensive although delicious tiny pizza. I wasn't interested in... More

As I have mentioned in other reviews, there are so many excellent wineries in the Oliver Region that is difficult to rate them differently. With that in mind reading the review rather than simply scanning the ratings is a must to get a real appreciation of what each does differently. Every year we visit we discover a few new excellent...

We drove 15 hours from our home to attend this celebration, and it was well worth the trip! A shuttle picked us up at The Watermark in Osoyoos, B.C. We were delivered to the winery where we were offered wine and served some very interesting appetizers. Sparkling wine was sabred and served. We then went to their "shed" where great... More

Was excited to visit this winery, however, their policy is $20 to try three whites and three reds. Only wanted to try the reds since that's my preference. No flexibility so the wife and I walked out. The wine may be good; honestly do not know.

Great wines. All organically grown/farmed wines. They had a different way of doing wine tasting. When you walk in the door they gave you a one oz sample of their wine and if you wanted to taste more it was $10 for two whites and a red or $20 for 3 whites and 3 reds. The sampling could be shared... More

Loved the personal, sit down, service. After 11 other winery tastings over 3 days we felt that this is the best way to taste wines - relaxed, unhurried and very informative.

We had a lovely tasting on the outside deck. The winery assistant was very informative and we learned a lot about how the winery operates and its history. Try the Cellar Hand brand. The cheapest wines on the menu but very under appreciated.
