The day we stopped in was a summer Saturday and it was packed. The restaurant (or so we hear) is a great option in the area and requires reservations - so maybe this is a good 'final destination' on a wine tasting route. I wish I could be more positive about the tasting itself: our server was quite nice, gave... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here while biking the KVR. My husband had to return for my cell phone, which I'd left on the trail (!!) and the staff graciously hosted me and our one-year-old for an hour before he returned and we could eat. Everyone was so friendly and the food was fantastic. I also love that it backs... More

After a nice day out on a Monday, we came for dinner here. The new menu is AMAZING! It was quiet with only a few tables that were busy, but it's off season. Really nice wines and a beer option for those non-wine drinkers. Check out the hamburger!

There are several things I come for at Hillside. Obviously the wine. I very much enjoy their Gewürztraminer and their Muscat.(yes, I like Muscat!) Both I find fresh and full of flavour. The staff is friendly and willing to share their passion for their product. Another feature is the building itself. It is a timber frame structure in the form... More

Our group of 15 parked our bikes at the front and made our way into the wine tasting area where, even though it was crowded, Charlotte ensured we were all looked after and were able to sample and enjoy a few of Hillside's beautiful wines. LOVED the Gewurtz!! Thanks for being so accommodating to such a big group - we'll... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. There were 6 of us and all enjoyed the food. Really liked the soup. If your visiting would highly recomend you stop here. We had a slight wait as the place was full. Well worth the wait though. Will be coming back again for sure.

We visit Hillside Winery and Bistro each time we travel to Penticton. The staff in the wine tasting room are very professional and knowledgeable about show casing their wonderful wines as well as the history of their winery. They are proud of their wine and definitely make you feel at home. We never feel rushed and always feel welcomed. So... More
