Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Elephant Island began as a family haven, a place of summer picnics, orchard adventures and magical holidays on the Naramata Bench. Today the elephant has grown into a 6,000 case winery driven to craft wines of character. Wines that sing with the unconventional voice of vanguard fruit. Wines that are balanced by a reverence for traditional winemaking practices. Wines that are rooted and inspired by family history.

We did a free tasting there and loved it! The pink elephant is very nice. We also bought the crab apple which is delightful! Enjoy!!! 100% grape free winery

“Surprisingly pleasant fruit wines!”

The "Pink Elephant" sparkling wine and the desert wines were very nice! Definitely worth a stop in to give it a try!

“Beautiful place, beautiful wines!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband & I stopped here for some wine tasting and were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it! It was so nice to sit on the shaded patio and taste their wonderful fruit wines. A very relaxing break on a beautiful summer day in Naramata! The staff were so nice and friendly, I didn't want to leave. Can't wait to return!

“Great little winery!”

It was very personal. You sit in this cute little court yard for your tastings and it's free! We left with a lot of wine! Lots of fruit wine! Very tasty!

“Wonderful Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I just returned from a weekend of wine tasting in the Okanagan. Elephant Island was by far my favourite place. The staff were absolutely wonderful and very accommodating of our large group (13 people). The setting is beautiful you are able to sit on a patio with the orchard surrounding you while doing your tasting. While we were there we bought some cheese and meat that we could eat during the tasting. The wine was also wonderful and very different as everything is made of fruit. We went to some other well known wineries in the area however because of our lovely host and the beautiful setting nothing else could compare. Although we weren't with any kids they had a childrens table with lots of toys!
