Mission Hill Family Estate Winery
At Mission Hill Family Estate Winery, a single philosophy has guided us since 1981 — the relentless pursuit of quality at every turn. Over four decades, we have discovered small and unique geological pockets to plant vines from Lake Country in the north to Osoyoos in the south Okanagan.
In 1981, the Okanagan was largely undiscovered as a wine region, instead it was renowned for the quality of its stonefruit orchards. Grape growers were just beginning to take risks, planting vines in unproven terrain.
Despite these risks, the glacier-formed valley offered varying soil profiles, long, hot growing days, and diverse microclimates. These distinct subregions posed an opportunity to cultivate wine with unmistakable terroir. This potential inspired Mission Hill Family Estate Winery vision for the future of Okanagan wine.
Now, after being recognized as Canada’s only five-time winner of Winery of the Year and receiving multiple best varietal awards on the international stage, we continue to draw inspiration from the valley and the vineyards we tend to. For us, the journey is just beginning.
