The View Winery
The View Winery is a family owned estate winery overlooking the city of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake. We have a strong commitment to quality and are proud of our award winning aromatic cool-climate whites and our fruit forward, spicy reds. In honour of our apple growing history we also craft Wards Cider. Tucked into a charming 1920`s era vintage building, our wine shop is an eclectic and inviting stop for any wine tour. This building served as a neighbourhood apple packing house for generations. Visitors are offered the unique opportunity to taste our estate grown wines and ciders right in our cellar for a truly authentic experience.
The View Winery is situated on a parcel of land that has been in the Turton/Ward family for 5 generations. Historically, fresh market apples were grown on the property. In the mid 1990’s a transition began and vineyards and cider apples were planted. Spartans and McIntosh gave way to Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Ehrenfelser and Pinotage vines as well as cider apple varieties such as Belle de Boskoop, Chisel Jersey and Bulmers Norman.
In 2006, the family’s beloved old packinghouse built by Great Granddad Ward in 1922 was transformed into a winery and cidery under the direction of his grandson Chris Turton and great-granddaughter Jennifer Turton-Molgat.
The View Winery now produces over ten thousand cases each year. Our diverse portfolio of award winning wines includes Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Ehrenfelser, and our signature reds: Pinotage and Pinot Noir. Our rosé has emerged as a favourite as have our Silver Lining Estate blends. In 2013 we added Canada’s first wine in can with our wildly popular BLING Sparkling Wine.
