Lake Country is the space connecting Vernon and Kelowna. It’s a popular area for wine tasting because of it’s Boho-beachy vibe with award winning wineries scattered through vineyards and orchards, fruit stands, beaches and small art galleries. This is a fun place to spend a hot summer’s day.

Fun little winery on the bench of Lake Country. The entire back yard is a picnic area where you can nibble your own lunch and sip the wine purchased from inside. We have always loved our experience here! The service is great; we've had the private tasting room opened up on a whim, stemwear brought out to the picnic area, and overall a really fun and accomodating staff to hang out with.

  • There is a private tasting room you can book for your group.
  • Several wines are around the $15 mark, and they're awesome!
  • One of Saffron's Faves!
