Overview
More
The first winery to open in Kamloops Harper's Trail Estate Winery, named for the cattle drive "trail" of pioneer rancher Thaddeus Harper, is the first winery from Kamloops. Tucked into the city outskirts on the bank of the South Thompson River, Thadd Springs Vineyard sits among rolling hills of sage and grass, home to Bighorn sheep, bears, and myriad birds. The backdrop of limestone, Hoodoos, and a natural spring set the biodiversity of this rare place. Harper's Trail wines are Thompson Okanagan grown and made, reflective of the region's terroir that show gorgeous minerality and crisp acidity. Visit today and taste the untamed land..
