Owner description: Hester Creek Estate Winery has its roots deep in this province. Our oldest vines were planted in the rich soil of the Golden Mile Bench in 1968. Today, our estate vineyard produces wines that are a lively, intensely flavoured expression of this place we call home. Tucked against rugged desert bluffs on the Golden Mile Bench, The Villa Suites at Hester Creek overlook a spectacular panorama of lush vineyards and orchards. A luxurious home base from which to explore and experience the Okanagan Valley, our Mediterranean-inspired suites come with comfortable amenities, a homemade, locally sourced breakfast and the best sunrise in BC. Relax on our patios among the vines, browse in the wine shop or dine at Tuscan inspired, Terrafina Restaurant. Come see why Hester Creek is a "True Wine Experience". Open 10am - 7pm everyday!

What a lovely spot to visit. Great views, excellent wine tasting venue, tasting/pairing kitchen, and fabulous restaurant. Or, one can picnic on the patio with a baguette, cheese, a glass of wine and a sparkling view. We will certainly return for another visit.

treat yourself to a glass or two and a baguette with some camembert on the patio overlooking the valley and Lake Okanagan to the right. Sooooo relaxing.

They have a beautiful location. This was our 5th winery of the day so we decided to stop in and have lunch. I ordered the focaccia bread and assorted speads and my hubby ordered a mushroom and bacon pizza. We did not order wine (because we went for a tasting after) and the food was spectacular!!! I would highly recommend the restaurant and the wine. The tasting room was beautiful and for $10 per person you can do a tasting and food pairing. (I wish we had of know this before we went for lunch). They also have a wonderul patio that you can take a picnic lunch to and enjoy your wine.

We were also served by a Laurie, and she was nothing but rude and snotty! She informed us that the Cabernet Franc was running low in supplies so they were not giving out tastings (fair enough). When asked how many bottles were left to purchase she rolled her eyes and said "seriously, do you seriously want to know how many bottles we have left?) it got worse from there and we ended up talking to the manager about her attitude. He apologized for her actions and said she is regularly one of their better staff members (apparently not)

We were all insulted and left without purchasing a single bottle. We will go anywhere else before we go back to Hester Creek!

The winery is beautiful and the staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They served pear juice to my teens, let us try all the wines we liked...all complimentary. I would love to go back and do the food and wine pairing tutorial when the kids aren't along. We bought the Pinot Gris and the Reserve Merlot.
