Hillside Winery

Housed in one of the most striking buildings around, Hillside Winery is also one of the oldest wineries on the Naramata Bench.

The owners of Hillside (along with Wild Goose and Lang Vineyards) successfully lobbied the BC government in 1989 to allow small vineyards to produce and sell wine at their own properties. This was a significant change that allowed the BC wine industry to become what it is today.

Proudly producing wines from only 100% Naramata grapes, Hillside believes in harnessing nature rather than interfering it. The results are a reputation for high quality wines and plenty of awards.
