Black Widow Winery

Wine tourers have a good chance to be served by the founding couple or their children at Black Widow, a small yet underrated family owned and operated winery on Naramata Road.

The tasting room is built into a steep hillside and features Meditterean style architecture, resulting in the interior being cool on hot days. Surrounded by vineyards, the compact patio outside the tasting room looks out across the road to Okanagan Lake and the mountains beyond.

Black Widow is a terroir driven winery, with all of the grapes used grown on the Naramata Bench. The winemakers have a low intervention philosophy and often use gravity to move wine around the five story winery.

The winery’s name is accredited to the black widow spiders common in the vineyard and throughout the Okanagan Valley.
