“Award Winning Wines”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

A great multiple awards winning, family owned winery. This winery was recommended by another local winery as a must visit, and it did not disappoint. Extensive offerings of wine to taste free of charge. They had an award winning Cabernet Sauvignon on offer which was one of the best that I tasted through out the Okanagan on this visit. I highly recommend that you visit here.

“Customer satisfaction”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Some great wines to try. This little winery has won many awards and the choices are plenty. The owner treated us very well and talked to us about his winery and the area. The wines are reasonable in cost and great value.

Great product and service. A convenient location makes it nice addition to any wine tour. Not to mention there is no cost and plenty of wines to taste.

“must try”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This winery is rather unassuming, but the quality of their wines is second to none. The huge Bullmastiff "wine dog" is an added bonus!
My recommendations are ; the Syrah, Mirage, Gamay and the Port. Did not try any whites this trip. Tastings are free but they take donations for a revolving cast of charities.
Do not miss this winery.

“Good wine”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We visited Desert Hills on a tour of the Oliver/Osoyoos area vineyards. We enjoyed their wines, especially the reds. The tasting room itself is simple but nice. When we visited they had a huge friendly dog hanging out in the tasting room. The tasting has no fee but you can donate some change to charity instead.
