Named for the solitary majestic old growth pine of their Oliver estate, Le Vieux Pin sits perched amidst the famed vineyards of the Black Sage Bench: Canada's sole pocket desert, located in the South of British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. Since releasing their first vintage in 2005, Le Vieux Pin has captured the essence of traditional French winemaking, along with the bold New World character distinct to the region. Considered by the national wine industry to be a leading Syrah producer, the winery uses low input viticulture and non-interventionist winemaking to make exclusive vintages that carry with them a sense of time and place. These fine wines can be savoured nationwide and internationally, at select culinary hot spots, gastronomical institutions, and fine wine merchants. The pine tree stands alone. We invite you to visit us, our Tasting Room is open the following hours: Nov 1 - March 15: By Appointment only. March 16 - May 15: 7 days a week 11am-5pm. May 16 - Jun 30: Sun-Wed 11am-5pm, Thurs-Sat 10:30am-6:30pm. Jul 1 - Sept 30: 7 days a week 10:30am-6:30pm. Oct 1 - Oct 31: 7 days a week 11am- 5pm.

The wines in the tasting were all very nice but we found the tasting to be a bit pricey- $10 for the regular tasting and $18 to include the more expensive wines. We didn't like any of the wines enough to purchase a bottle but would recommend visiting here to others.

This, to me, is what I want to avoid when tasting. I'm on holidays. I have limited time and want to enjoy my brief period away from work. I don't want a wine snob ruining my vacation. And I certainly don't need you to validate my status. As we enter a lady with barely passable English welcomes us with "What... More

Personally, Le Vieux Pin has by far the best wine in Oliver. Each wine is very high quality and memorable. Really good and informative wine-tasting.

We visited Le Vieux Pin on July 25th for a tasting around 12:00pm. The tasting room gives the impression that you've arrived to a vineyard in Provence or Bordeaux and is definitely a smaller boutique winery producing around 4500 cases/year according to the wine tasting host. She was very knowledgable about the wines and created an excellent tasting experience for... More

I like French wine and felt right at home tasting what I believe are some of the greatest wines in the valley. Knowledgable staff. Thanks to Alex. Great job. Took a case home with me.

This s a small winery (lees than 10K cases I believe). Not a large selection of wines but what they do have, they do well. The building itself is very nice and welcoming. Our tasting was provided by a friendly, informative staff member. No hint of pretension. The wines are quite good, particularly the Ava. I'm not a big syrah... More

Great little winery. Easy to get to along the upper bench road along with some other great wineries. Although not usually a white wine drinker the Ava was what we bought. Tried 3 other Syrahs & although good they are not to our liking. Like the old world labels & prices were reasonable.

On the road parallel to Hi97, higher elevation and better views than the highway. Warm welcome by Marie and we had the pleasure to continue in French. We tasted the range and these are wines worth the tasting and the purchase. Don't miss the place.

What a sweet stop for a tasting. We came to the area to experience wine tasting in BC. As with most Canadians we were familiar with some of the big name vineyards but with little knowledge of what else the area provided. Fortunately for us we were directed by one of the largest estate tasting rooms, to the Le Vieux... More
