About
Our winery is evidence of what one man with vision, determination, and a little luck can accomplish. Proprietor and winemaker, Ted Kane, developed a passion for winemaking at a young age. Many Alberta winters were spent learning and planning how to accomplish his ultimate goal; owning and operating a winery in Canada's premiere wine producing area, Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country. 10 years after acquiring it, this perfect piece of raw land has been transformed into a 7 acre vineyard producing several varieties of high quality fruit, a fully functioning winery with a boutique tasting room and, most importantly, our family home. We specialize in the Bordeaux varietals, but also have a selection of white wines and a unique, full bodied Malbec Rose.

There are so many wineries to visit in the Okanagan and it is hard to choose how to spend your time. This winery is a true hidden gem, an incredible tasting experience backed up by wine that really stands above most others. We loved their wine so much we joined their wine club, this is well worth a visit.

We did the seated tasting and it was a wonderful experience. The setting under the newly installed sun sails was comfortable in spite of the warm weather. Colleen our host was informative and knowledgeable of the wine.
The River Stone wine glasses were a nice take home souvenir of our visit.

First impression’s matter, what a magnificent setting with the vines running up the hill to the house and tasting room. You are met by a member of the R/S crew who books, you have to book, you in and introduces you to your tasting host who is very knowledgable of both the grapes used in the excellent wines you can savour. It’s so nice not to be put under pressure of either buying or time. After which we decided to sit on the terrace with a box of charcuterie and wine, extra to the tasting, enjoying the view over the vines. We would recommend both a visit and the wine it is excellent.

It's pretty here... friends told us this was a charming and great winery to visit. Unfortunately it appears they have grown a lot in size and are now are having growing pains. We had a totally different experience here than our friends described. We will not be back.

Extremely Covid safe presentation in the garden. The presentation of the history and details of each wine was super. While other wineries have been very good and enjoyable, this one seemed to go beyond the norm. This one visit would've made the whole trip worthwhile in itself !! And of course the wines are delectable also.

Fantastic tasting experience in the open air hosted by Dave who made us feel very welcome. Beautiful surroundings and the wines .. well they are simply delicious . We like red wines so did not taste the whites and our host was very helpful in tuning our tasting experience in this regard . Dave did encourage us however to taste the Malbec rose and ... yes we loved it ! Thank you Dave! We have never been to a wine tasting where we have really enjoyed ALL the wines tasted .. truly wonderful wines .. we loved the Cornerstone and Stones throw in particular .. but really it was hard to choose our favourites as all the red wines we tasted we thought were delicious, all with their own character. A must visit winery in the Oliver region .. fantastic outdoor hosting experience on a beautiful summers evening , in a beautiful location with really delicious wines . We will be enjoying these wines for many years I am certain and we will be back to visit next time we are in the area .

Always have a great visit to River Stone. In addition to the beautiful setting and outstanding wine, the RSE Team are a pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable, professional and fun. They make the experience outstanding. Starting with Leslie and her "What ever you need" attitude to Wes the taster dude, everyone was amazing.

As member of their club I look forward to each year bringing another great wine to experience.

Keep up the amazing work!

It is always a top notch experience at Riverstone Winery. The atmosphere is so picturesque and very inviting. The staff are so warm in nature and are happy to share information about the wine and the history of the winery. The outdoor tasting space in the garden among the vines just makes it an ideal place to taste beautiful wines. This winery is always at the top of my list for places to bring visitors in the South Okanagan. They have a great selection of wines and they are so well balanced with tons of character and complexity. They also have an excellent wine club that gives you access to library wine, new releases and you get discounts on all purchases. I can't say enough good things about these wines and the winery.

What a hidden little gem! I have to give it to Lesley, Leah, Wes, Dave and Taylor - you guys are doing a fantastic job and your tasting experiences are just amazing.

If you are looking for that small estate winery with a family feeling to it, that is the spot to go - but don't tell everyone please. We wanna keep it 'our' secret...

We found a hidden treasure. Had a great experience at River Stone and Wes made the wine tasting "winederful"! He was personable and knowledgeable. The wine was delicious and we became wine club members.That says it all.
