“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Terrafina was recommended by a local as superior to the restaurant at Burrowing Owl. We enjoyed an excellent pizza and salad lunch on a rainy, cool Saturday in late October. Both of us are light eaters and there was no hesitation by the server in accepting orders to share a salad and pizza. The pizza was still large enough that we took a third of it home with us. The ingredients used were fresh and the service personable and friendly. Would recommend heartily. The little restaurant is also extremely pretty. I imagine that it would be great in warmer weather when the patio was open.

“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had a leisurely lunch with a friend recently. It was cool, so al fresco dining was out of the question. We had beautiful sweet potato soup with garlic and pear, followed by shrimp and scallop puttenesca on angel hair pasta. Divine. Service was just right - there when we needed it - not there in middle of conversation. Terrafina is my fave in the Okanagan. Note: Brunch served Nov/Dec only.

“Great Winery to Visit and share a meal over a glass of wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Beautiful winery with the feel of a small producer but the wines that are fun and tasty to drink. We have been here several times and enjoy the tastings, the store and items they sell, and we have picnic'd on their beautiful patio several times. Well worth a visit or three!!!

“Unfriendly and uh...maybe pretentious?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went here after having lunch at Terrafina's (wonderful experience) on a day of wine touring. Met with a "taste test" at the door which was kind of nice. There was no one in the tasting room and the tasting room staff seems a bit offstandish. After we had a tasting and bought a bottle then she was much more friendly. Wine wasn't close to the quality of some of the other wineries we attended, and the attitude didn't help.
