In 1981, the Okanagan was largely undiscovered as a wine region, instead it was renowned for the quality of its stonefruit orchards. Grape growers were just beginning to take risks, planting vines in unproven terrain.
Despite these risks, the glacier-formed valley offered varying soil profiles, long, hot growing days, and diverse microclimates. These distinct subregions posed an opportunity to cultivate wine with unmistakable terroir. This potential inspired Mission Hill Family Estate’s vision for the future of Okanagan wine.
Now, after being recognized as Canada’s only five-time winner of Winery of the Year and receiving multiple best varietal awards on the international stage, we continue to draw inspiration from the valley and the vineyards we tend to. For us, the journey is just beginning.

The Terrace Restaurant features regionally-inspired dishes paired with wine cultivated from our estate vineyards. Working closely with local, sustainable farmers, the culinary team sources foods grown naturally near the vineyards — “if it grows together, it goes together”.
With open-air seating, rolling vineyards unfold before you, providing a serene view while you dine. On the terrace, immerse yourself in the Okanagan Valley with beautiful scenery, local food, and thoughtful wine.
Our boutique features a curated compilation of goods sourced from estate sales, auctions, and our Proprietor’s private collection, along with new finds, such as books, glassware, and of course wine. Always changing and unlike any other store in the Okanagan Valley, this is a place to get lost and explore before or after our wine experiences.
