A few friends and I visited this winery this passed weekend. We were instantly welcomed and given 3d glasses to enjoy the art. The wine was quite lovely ( on the sweeter side, but that is what I enjoy). Between the four of us we bought 3 bottles, one of which we brought out to the backyard, opened and enjoyed while sitting in the sun enjoying live music performed by a local student. We ended up loosing track of time and probably spent an hour just enjoying ourselves in the sunshine. We then decided we would walk ourselves through the vineyard. Upon doing this we came across a man (turned out to be the owner) who had informed us we shouldn't be walking around on our own. Instead of sending us on our way he dropped what he was doing and gave us a personal tour of the whole winery. It was spectacular, the view they have of the city is stunning. He also took the time to explain all the little details to us, and even snapped a photo of us girls so we could save it for memories. All in all I will be back next time I'm in Kelowna, enjoy another bottle outside in the sun. Side note, check out all the flowers on the property, the wife of the owner plants and maintains on her own, and they are lovely!!

I know this review is a few months late, but I just opened a bottle of Vibrant Vine wine and felt compeled to share my experience. I went to visit a friend in Kelowna for a few days, and she kept raving about this winery called "The Vibrant Vine." Being the wine lover that I am, I had to check it out. We pulled up to see a bright yellow building flanked by rows of vineyards and apple trees. The tasting room is bright and welcoming, and the artwork on the walls is the perfect compliment to the overall vibe of the place. The knowledgeable and friendly staff took the time to explain how each wine was made, etc. The wine was great! Especially the white wines. There's nothing like tasting a cold Gewurztraminer from a psychedelic 3D wine bottle, haha. We were then given the opportunity to check out the Okanaganvilla Estate Winery, also located on the property. We took a quick tour, and learned about some of the wine making process. Plus, we got to sample some of their exclusive wines. After picking out a bottle of Muscat, we went out back and soaked in the amazing view. All in all a great experience, with some really great wine. I'll definitely be back.

They weren't open for the season yet - but when we pulled up, came over and invited us in. Very funky place, with 3D glasses to view the art & bottles. This was a visit we will remember.

Friendly gReeting complete with 3d glasses to check out all the art work hanging on the ceilings and walls. Neat idea but wear them too long and you get a head ache. Very knowledgeable host, the wine tasting was educational and we loved the dog.
