Elephant Island Winery

Elephant Island Winery is a long standing member of the Naramata Bench wine scene and also one of the most distinctive. With their passion for fruit wine, you can expect a diversity of taste and flavours.

After being acquired by Catherine (grand mother) as an investment, the winery was named after what was believed to be a “white elephant” venture by the family’s grand father (Poppy).

As it turns out, Elephant Island is no white elephant after all, and is now creating unique, interesting wines for all to enjoy.
