Owner description: The BC Wine Museum & VQA Wine Shop was opened 15 years ago with the intention to bring the history of the Okanagan Wine Region to the public, as well as to help teach the public about the vast wine industry in BC. Our shop sells BC Vintners Quality Alliance wines; which is a guarantee that you’re purchasing 100% BC Wine. We sell at winery prices and carry over 600 listings of wine from over 90 wineries. When you purchase wine from the BCVQA Wine Shop, not only are you supporting the Kelowna Museums Society, but you are also supporting local VQA Wineries.

“A must stop to get your BC wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We stop here whenever we are in Kelowna because it is the best place to get the local wines without having to run out to our favorite wineries. The staff is always very helpful, and willing to make great recommendations.

“Best place to buy wine in Kelowna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We always drop by here on any visit to Kelowna and are always treated well by friendly and knowledgeable staff. They always have a few wines for tasting and then a great selection of Okanagan wines arranged by vineyard. They also have a few nice gift items. The shop is housed in a gorgeous renovated historic building and there are some interesting wine related relics to see inside. It might not be a 'museum' but they don't charge any admission either so what you see, you see for free and with a wine tasting to boot - doesn't get much better as far as I'm concerned! The apple 'museum' next door has a great real bee hive display.

“Not really a museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Not really a museum at all more like a wine shop. Very few artifacts or history. Nice wines to buy though and friendly assistants.

“Where I go to buy my wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is my go-to place to buy wine in Kelowna. It's not much of a museum, but it has an amazing selection of wines for all price ranges. Try the "Okanagan Blend" chardonay. It's only $8.49 a bottle!
