Gold Hill Winery
We opened Gold Hill in 2009, but our story begins 8,000 years ago when agriculture first blossomed in the Indus Valley, a fertile strip in the Punjab of Northwest India. Growing conditions in the Indus Valley, particularly for fruit, were much like our Southern Okanagan region: a magical combination of temperature, elevation, soil and airflow.
Our founders, brothers Sant and Gurbachan Gill, are farmers from the Indus Valley region. Our ancestors have always been farmers, as far back as our knowledge reaches. Growing fruit is in our bones.
Gold Hill Winery is a result of a lifetime experience for brothers Sant & Gurbachan. Established in 2009, Gold Hill’s focus has been to produce wines that reflect the charm of the South Okanagan. The wines are created with the spotlight on our estate vineyards. With over three decades of farming in the Okanagan, the Gill Brothers believe great wines start with understanding the unique terrior each of the vineyard sites and the Okanagan offers.
