    Carisa ROCKS!
    Carisa was absolutely amazing! Her knowledge of the vineyard’s history and the surrounding region, paired with her exceptional wine expertise made it an experience that exceeded our expectations. I have been at Mission Hill for a wine tour in the past, but she shed an entirely new light on the vineyard. We’ll be back and hope to have her as our guide once again! Awesome job!

    A beautiful experience
    Mission Hill is a stunning venue with an equally stunning selection of wines. We did a tour of the ground and the cellar, culminating in a tasting of some of the best wines by varietal I have ever had. Our guide Adrienne was also very knowledge and responsive to questions.
    Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your detailed feedback! We are thrilled to hear that you have nothing but amazing things to say about our team at Mission Hill Family Estate and what we offer.

    Amazing Mission Hill Moment
    Carissa is a phenomenal wine ambassador for Mission Hill. I had an amazing tour experience with her and feel more educated leaving than when I arrived. If you can request a guide I’d highly recommend asking for Carissa to curate your #Missionhillmoment.
    Hello 60shae, it sounds like you had a wonderful visit and that Carissa did an exceptional job. Until we see you again, thank you.

    Beautiful winery knows how to maximize its beauty
    Amy led our couple’s winery tour so kindly and professionally! We totally didn’t expect the sophisticated philosophy of the winery design and such a passion for the wine of the founder. Apéro after the tour with paired wines was extraordinary as well. Highly recommend!
    Hello Wonryong R and thank you for the 5 Star Review. Amy is such a professional. It is great to hear your pleasant surprise on the the level at which Mission Hill Family Estate operates and this is all due to the founder. The whole property operates at that level. Thank you for noticing.

    Behind the Cellar Door tour with Carissa
    Myself and my parents had a really lovely time with Carissa. She mentioned she was relatively new to Mission Hill but she was so knowledgeable and could answer any and all questions we had. Such a friendly and approachable tour guide, highly recommend!
    Hello Malread M, it is so nice to hear you and your parents had such a great time. And Carissa is a find for us this year, thank you for noticing. Hope to see you again, take care.

    Nikki was a pleasure and very personable. Could convey all the details about the family history and estate really well. Was able to really make the heritage resonate with us from outside of the okanagan, and able to see the family vision manifest throughout the tour. I appreciate the insight.
    Thank you for your kind review! We're delighted to hear that Nikki was a pleasure to have as your guide. Her personable nature and in-depth knowledge allowed her to convey the family history and estate details seamlessly, making the heritage resonate with you. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back soon!

    Well worth the visit
    Nikki made this experience one to remember. A wealth of information on wine and Mission Hill. An excellent knowledge on the regions wines and the special history and qualities of the wine and the architecture. Our visit was special and the tasting and good pairing perfect. Completed with a taste of Oculus. Thank you!
    Hi, Nikki is awesome. Thanks for visiting Mission Hill, we're glad you enjoyed it.

    Amazing tour and wine tasting at Mission Hill
    My boyfriend and I had such a great time at Mission Hill. We chose the Behind the Cellar door tour and Amy, our tour guide, was very informative, optimistic and knowledgeable! She took the time to get to know us as well and recommended a couple places to visit in downtown Kelowna during our visit.

Unfortunately Mission Hill “FAMILY” Estate Winery may only be enjoyed by a family with 2 or less children. It does not permit a third or more child to attend a reserved tasting/tour at this time. We’ve enjoyed this winery for many years and shared many wonderful memories there but now that we’ve expanded our family by 3 young ones, we’d have to leave one child at the hotel?? in order to partake. Very disappointing! We’ll enjoy and spend our time and money at all the other wineries in the neighbourhood that gladly truly accept families!!

My husband and I do a wine tour every year. The first time we went to Mission Hill it was mediocre at best.
That was about 7 years ago, about 3 years ago we decided to give it another try. The service at the tasting bar was marginally better, so we decided to try the restaurant. The view is spectacular. Easily the best in the entire Okanogan. However, service felt rushed and our cheese was covered in moldy spots. We vowed to never eat there again.
Which brings me to this year. With Covid wrecking havoc on everybody's travel plans, we decided to look at each vineyard we were going to visit this year and ensure there was no booking in advance required. Some of them did require some sort reservation, but it was easily done online. We had stated booking over 6 weeks before our arrival to ensure we would be able to taste the ones we wanted. Mission Hill had only elevated experiences to book. Not just a taste and purchase. With the cheapest at $35 per person. We were not interested in a tour, picnic or anything like that so we assumed that we could just go in.
The day arrived for our west kelowna wineries and Mission Hill was our first stop. We arrived 10 minutes after opening. Only to be stopped before we could even park and told they are ONLY open for reservations. They are booked for the next 3 days and there is no way they could help us.
To put things into perspective, in 3 days, we visited over 15 wineries. Most of the ones we had reservations for we were early, it was a little difficult to properly time that many stops, but they were still able to accommodate us. The ones that we passed on our travels that did require them but we stopped on a whim and we didn't have any were still able to fit us in with a little wait, but that is to be expected. To be completely turned away was definitely the final straw for this winery for me.

On a very positive note, due to being turned away, we had extra time to find a couple new places. We passed Frind estate winery and didn't think it was open yet. A quick Google search showed they were in fact open, required reservations and were booked. They were still happy to see us and were able to let us have a quick taste (while still maintaining social distancing)
If you are in the area, I highly recommend visiting them. Friendly, down to earth and delightful wine. We even stopped by the bakery and picked up some snacks for the road.

My husband and I went for a wine tasting experience at Mission Hill and it was truly, a wonderful experience. Due to Covid, we had the opportunity to taste the different delicious chosen wines in our own private room, probabaly one of the nicest room of the Winery, which certainly made this whole experience even more special. Our sommelier, Alfredo Jop, was very knowlegable and personnable anc we highly recommend him to anyone who not only wants to learn more about the specific wines, but also about the history of the winery and his founder.
Thank you again Alfredo, we will be back!

Extremely disappointed in their customer service. They are now charging $15 for a kid to come along. They get a cider to join the "experience" with you and a souvenir at the gift shop. We called and one employee said if there is an area in the comments online to just enter it and if not gave us the number for the receptionist. We just called and they are forcing you to pay $15 even if your kid won't drink the cider (ours is very picky water only) and we don't care about the souvenir. Only place I have ever heard of doing this. Also, their website tells you nothing about what the kid gets we had to call to find out.

I visited the Mission Hill estate with a group of friends on a stormy day in June, and we were all greatly impressed by the personable service and illuminating conversation provided to us by the mission hill team. Our guide through the wine, Shayne, was engaging and charismatic and provided a high level of service that felt unique and engaging despite the fact that she must be leading the same tour countless times.

I was also impressed by Pheobe, one of the concierge, who made us feel at home at the estate and went out of her way to briefly show us around the beautiful property and assist us in finding a way back to the city before the storm swung back around again!

Today was my birthday and my best friend and I booked 5 wine tours. Our first stop was Mission Hill, Sharon was our wine tour guide. She was amazing!!! Fun, funny, entertaining, knowledgeable, informative, she gave us great recipe ideas to pair with all the wines, even took pictures of us and snuck us a taste of the amazing oculus (which we definitely purchased). Highly recommend Mission Hill for a wine tasting and if you can ask for Sharon, you will not be disappointed!!

Also note on all 5 tours Sharon was the only one, that gave us tips on how to smell, swish and taste the wine to get the most from the tastings.

The experience consists of a guided tour of the winery followed by a superb wine tasting with cleverly chosen food pairings.
Our tour guide Jacob clearly loved his job, and brought us through the history of the winery itself as well as of the Von Mandl family who engaged one of the world's best architects to design the impressive hilltop property which has the lines and form of a medieval monastic settlement, complete with an 8 storey bell tower whose bells ring out the hours punctuated by chimes on every quarter.
An oculis in the courtyard admits a sliver of natural light to the wine cellar far below, which alone is worth the price of the tour.
A magnificent 15 by 15 foot replica painting of Chagall's "Animal Orchestra" adorns the wall of the wine tasting room, where, on long polished wooden tables our wine was already poured and soon to be paired with foods individually chosen for their ability to make our taste buds and palates dance with gastronomic delight. Here, our guide Jacob was in his element. I have met far older sommeliers who impressed me less than this young man did. With his guidance I and my companions were taken on a journey of the senses, tasting fine wines as if for the first time, such was the excitement we felt at the discovery of the subtle flavours triggered by the complementary food pairings.
The whole experience was made complete by the brilliantly placed and sculptures in the grounds.
Days out do not get much better than this.

We were extremely disappointed when we were turned away at the gate because we didn't have a reservation....and we just wanted to walk around the grounds. I had been to the website and while the reservations page indicates the tours, tastings & restaurant, it doesn't say anything about not being able to walk around the grounds without a reservation for a tour etc. I understand new protocols have to be in place with Covid, but they need to communicate and advertise much better. Still don't understand why we couldn't walk around the grounds without entering any indoor space. They weren't sympathetic or helpful at all....poor customer relations!

My wife & I attended a Culinary Class “Pasta Perfection”. The value of this event was incredible! Lots of great food! Lots of great wine! But what made it the most memorable was the incredible service from one individual, Georgia! Georgia was the private events captain for the event. She went out of her way to make everybody feel extremely welcomed and her wine tasting notes and explanations were second to none! We will be signing up for many more of these classes thanks to Georgia’s incredible customer service! The chefs were also incredible and entertaining. Thank you to Mission Hill for putting on these fantastic events.

We booked the private lunch at the estate and it came with vineyard and cellar tours and 4 course meal with 4 wine pairings. The food and wines were both fantastic and so is our tour guide Lily Anna, very friendly and always patiently answering our questions. We will definitely come back again next time!
