We arrived here towards the end of the day.The owner was pouring wine and looked like he had been all day. Clearly tired he mustered up the strength to smile and entertain while we sipped his wine, ate his wife's bread, and listened to his story. We had a great time with him.

This relative newcomer to the south Okanagan wine scene was recommended by the owners of the B&B we stayed at, and it lived up to their billing. The owners run the place all by themselves; she bakes the bread, and he runs the tasting room, and together they put together a very memorable tasting experience, with savoury breads designed to...

I visited this winery, which happens to be situated approximately 5 km from my vineyard on Black Sage Road. There were Four of us and we were quite interested in the Bakery which had been recommended by friends. Upon entering the tasting area, it was obvious that the person (who I assume was the OWNER) was completely unsuited for the... More

I checked out the vineyard as I was curious about this new winery. I was not disappointed. I was greeted by the friendliest dog named Wally who led me into the tasting room. The Host/owners were both very informative and engaging. Their wine is excellent and the fact that they have a variety of homemade breads to pair with the... More

Based on all the reviews we thought we would stop at this winery on our most recent visit to Oliver and also thought we would pick up some bread and cheese to have as it was lunch time. We were hoping they might have a spot on the property where we could eat the bread and cheese and drink the... More

Wonderful couple who are so happy to have you visit. They run this place and vineyard all by themselves! No charge at all. You can sample the delicious artisan bread and wine as well as enjoy the scenery on their lovely patio sets they have set up for visitors. Worth a stop for sure!

You walk in and are greeted by the smell of the most mouth watering bread perfectly paired with the wine. Lots of personality and well worth the stop, don't leave this one out. We bought three bread and 3 bottles...so good.

The wine here is very nice, but the bread is the best. The owners are so friendly. The husband does the wine tasting and he is very entertaining. The wife brakes the bread and she is a genius. Try the Gorgonzola with spiced fig!
