Winery # 7 on our tour and sadly worst experience. Wes was very snobby and rather rude to my friends daughter. Criticized me for drinking water out of my wine glass, however I did not comment on the fact that we did not get a new glass for each wine. Terrible experience after a great day at other wineries, too... More

OK TinHorn Creek may be one of the Okanogan's best kept secrets. Nestled on the western hills of Oliver BC, it used to be a gold-mine for prospectors and ruffians. You can walk the trails and see the remains of the mines! So now it's been converted to a majestic and very well-run winery adorning the slopes. Besides a very... More

The wine was okay but the VIEW omg the view was perfect!! We were told to go here for the view not the wine and so happy we did because while we were there looking over the vineyard we saw a big deer sitting in the middle at the end of the vineyard it was a breathtaking scene and really... More

I would give it 5 stars save for one staff member that made us feel a little bit less than welcome. We aren't very wine-snobby so that may be the reason. That aside.....AMAZING. We won a stay at their guesthouse, which unfortunately is not available to the public, so if you see a draw for a stay there, be sure... More

Tinhorn had been recommended by colleagues. We decided on the bench red and white and the Chardonnay. The Boudreaux style bench red was classic. The white 2 bench was quite the blend and the Chardonnay was unoaked. Phenomenal setting. Knowledgeable wine docent.

This was part of our vineyard tours - as part of my Bachelorette party - the winery was very welcoming and the tasting was delicious and informative. I would definitely recommend a taste of the Gewürztraminer 2013. It is delicious and incredibly priced. I definitely enjoyed my experience and would recommend future visits. The restaurant is also top notch, the... More

We spent some very entertaining time with Fred and Chris from Tinhorn Creek. We started off our day with a wine tasting...although toothpaste was barely out of our mouths...ha. Fred was very keen to have us taste their product and was clearly very knowledgeable about their products. The white wines were most tasty...and quite enjoyed...especially the Gewurztraminer! His enthusiasm was... More

Great setup for visitors. Impressive drive in, from the gardens to the roses at the ends of each row of vines. Nice tasting bar experience with friendly staff, and a terrific gift shop with local gourmet foods and wine-themed items. No charge to taste up to four wines.

Went here for lunch on way back from bike race. 1.5 hours later still waiting for lunch to arrive. All we were getting were apologies and excuses. Will never go back.
