About
On May 10, 2010 the Sarwan Gidda family of West Kelowna opened the doors of Volcanic Hills Estate Winery. The 15,000 square foot winery situated on the south-eastern slope of Boucherie Mountain (a dormant stratovolcano created nearly 60 million years ago) inspired the name Volcanic Hills. Inside their spacious, family friendly winery, you’ll find many unique gift ideas, comfy sofa chairs and a large expansive wine bar with plenty of elbow room for tasting “nectar of the vines”. Open year round, tours are offered in July and August. Volcanic Hills Estate Winery also rents out its facility – for artistic classes, craft fairs, concerts, corporate and private gatherings. Come taste Bubbly Gewurztraminer, rose, red and white blends, varietals, late harvest and Icewines as well as volcanic themed blends such as Eruption, Magma and Lava. Stop by and experience wines "erupting with flavour!"

Lee was a personable and informative guide for our tasting. We enjoyed all the wines we tried but I especially enjoyed the 2015 Eruption.

Worth a stop
Aug 2021
One of the few wineries in the area that does not take reservations, and does all the tastings by walk-in only, which was helpful as we had time between two other booked tastings and were able to drop in here. There are two tastings choices, $10 or $15, but fees waived when you purchase wine. Our server was knowledgeable about the history of the winery, the family who owns it, and the wines she was pouring. Overall a good experience, and we left with a couple of bottles. Would recommend a visit here.

Unfriendly atmosphere
Jul 2021 • Friends
The manager and waitress could have been more friendly and accommodating to patrons. Manager and waitress had very bad attitudes, with him throwing around orders and very unpleasant feel there. Food and wine were delicious

Great selection of ice wines
Jul 2021
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the wines. Their wines are very good but not great. However, they have a great selection of ice wines is you prefer something sweeter. Their facilities are well laid out and were spotless. Lots of parking but the spots are not marked so be careful of other cars doing silly things. Will definitely go back again.

A good experience

We had a good experience at Volcanic Hills. The service was friendly and efficient. Our questions were all answered and the wine was good and not overpriced.

We would return

Fabulous dinner out with hubby. Chef made a great Salmon dish for me. Loved it. Mr had the short ribs. Yummy. The desert was over the top. Going back again sooner than later. Cheers!

A downhearted experience in a miserable time…
Nov 2020
My sister and I visited on a quiet Sunday evening. It was 4:45 and it appeared from their signage that they close at 5:30. I went in anyways to ask whether they were still open because it looked there wasn’t anyone in the building or parking lot and wanted to make sure before storming inside.
Honestly, the customer service wasn’t egregiously rude, but the atmosphere was uninviting and pushy. It appeared that despite being told that we had time to enjoy a tasting, the attendant wanted us out of her sight as soon as possible. I can commiserate that you want your day to end, but you could have told us that before we came in, instead of making us feel like we were intruding.

Never heard about this winery
Oct 2020 • Couples
This place was new to me. Newer seen their wines in any BC liquor store which after tasting it is a shame. Purchased some Gewuerztraminer (from their vineyard) which is balanced and excellent. In my opinion it can compete with any gewuerztraminer from Europe without any problem. The reason why I only give an average has one big reasons.
the lady who served me the wine had not much knowledge about the wine or when ask for details ( where from (the wine) and so on. She seemed to think that if you taste wine you have to drink it. When I ask for a spittoon she was perplexed and had to ask the manager for help.

Finally found Gamay!
Jul 2020
We stoppped in here because I was on the hunt for Gamay (not easy to find!). Success! While we were here we were able to join the wine tasting. Very friendly staff and quite an array of tasting availble. I was suprised that they even had tasting of their icewine.

Their store had quite a diverse array of items for sale.

Nice little stop along our day!

Mixed feelings
Jun 2020 • Friends
Four of us went there because we heard good things. We enjoyed Gamay Noir and Gewurztraminer. Others, especially the sweet wines, were average. Staff behind the bar were friendly and informative. When we went to pay the guy was dressed in a button down shirt and ratty gym shorts. The woman beside him just reeked. They should put more effort in appearance and hygiene. Pretty good wine. Not a great impression.
