Wine Tasting in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley

While the Okanagan Valley wine appellation may be relatively unknown as a global wine destination, its Mission Hill Family Estate  overlooking British Columbia’s Okanagan Lake — is one of the world’s most spectacular winery venues.

Located near Kelowna, British Columbia, the scenic Mission Hill winery architecture includes a keystone, bell tower, loggia, wine education center and much more, designed by Seattle architect Tom Kundig.

The winery hosts summer concerts in the outdoor amphitheater, where guests enjoy a commanding view of Lake Okanagan along with the entertainment.

Mission Hill Estate proprietor Anthony von Mandl helped to pioneer the making of fine wines Okanagan Valley.
