    Always a pleasurable visit
    I have been a regular visitor to the winery and have been an advocate encouraging friends and family who have never been to visit the property. We booked the "Behind The Cellar Door" tour and tasting and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and genuine and we did not feel rushed at any point during the experience.
    Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We appreciate you being an advocate for us and we hope to see you again soon!

    Paradise in the Okanagan
    Our unforgettable experience at Mission Hill Winery's estate room wine tasting deserves high praise! The breathtaking view added a touch of magic to the day, and the quality of wine and snacks surpassed expectations. But what truly made it outstanding was our host, Max. His engaging and knowledgeable approach elevated the entire tasting, leaving us with lasting impressions. An absolute 5-star experience that I highly recommend to all wine enthusiasts! 🍷🌄🌟
    This is great to hear, Tracey! Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for the great praise for Max!

    Sensory overload at Mission Hill
    Had an incredible experience at Mission Hill with our family last week. We were fortunate to have several tasting experiences with 6-9 Reserve, Terrior and Legacy wines which left a lasting impression . Our Wine Ambassador Max was very knowledgable on the wines and also the winery's history which made it a very enjoyable and educational experience. We'll certainly be recommending the wines and the winery to our friends and have them request Max for a special tour:)
    That is so amazing to hear, Kevin! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback and kind words about Max, he will appreciate!

    Lovely visit !
    As many others have said Maxwell was an excellent guides for our cellar tour. Turned out to be just the four of us so he spent time explaining the history of the estate and talking about the extensive vineyards etc. We finished with a tasting with some chef’s paired nibbles - it was a lovely experience and I got many great shots from it - good job Maxwell. We don’t really love the wines but you simply can’t fault how stunning the surroundings are ! Rob
    Thank you, Rob, for sharing your experience and for talking so highly of Maxwell! He was the superstar of this season and he will appreciate your kind words!

After visiting and bringing visitors to this winery for 30 years we will be moving on and not coming back. This past weekend we tried to visit the property with family to purchase and enjoy a bottle of wine in the beautiful surroundings. We didn’t have a tasting reservation and we were fine to just purchase wine and enjoy the property but were turned away mid afternoon despite ample parking available. After enjoying this winery and several experiences and events over the years it seems that it has turned into an elitist club that is no longer welcoming. With many other amazing choices in the region I would recommend visiting wineries who value and embrace their patrons in a way this big business is no longer able to do.

Imposing, with good views and a relaxing atmosphere for tasting. The sommelier was interesting and entertaining. The wines reasonable.

An amazing experience from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. The views are breathtaking and the setting is sublime. I would recommend this for a romantic visit, and if I wasn’t already married I would have proposed there and then with that view in the background.

Located in the Okanagan Valley, this was my second visit with the first back in 2004. An absolutely fabulous location overlooking Kelowna. The vision and implementation is second to none.

I had high expectations given my previous visit and was not disappointed in the least. Every aspect has been carefully created leaving nothing to chance. A visual smorgasbord treating the senses.

Of course the wines are first class and most enjoyable.

I rank this as the number one location to visit in the Okanagan Valley. You will not be disappointed.

We visited this winery in May, 2023. Jason who was our guide, very knowledgeable about wine and this winery. I learned a lot from him. We had a fabulous wine pairing at the cozy patio. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were great taste and we loved them so much. After the tasting, we enjoyed the spectacular view from the winery. I highly recommend to visit this place.

While in Kelowna we visited here at a friend's suggestion. It was fabulous, the tour very interesting ( we did the cellar one), the wine and food pairings delicious, the boutique lovely. Our guide Sarah, from St. Catherine's Ontario was so lovely and very knowledgeable about the winery. The setting is stunning. I'd highly recommend a visit.

Mission Hill was the worst experience we have had in the 7 years we have been visiting Okanogan wineries. The individual conducting our tasting was arrogant and condescending. It was the most negative experience one could imagine. I will never subject my family to that kind of rude behaviour again. Mission Hill is off our list. We went from there to a completely wonderful experience at Mount Boucherie Winery where we were treated as people. Do yourself a favour and avoid Mission Hill.

We visited here once again and can't tell you enough how much we enjoy our experience over and over. It is the best tour experience in the Okanagan, in our opinion. We are wine club members and one of the main reasons we joined is so we can take guests up to not only see this beautiful property but to taste their award winning wines. This is a must see place when visiting the area, and is great property to see even for those who don't want to drink wine. For art lovers, there is the beautiful architecture, the hand crafted tower bells, the Henry Moore sculpture, the Marc Chagall tapestry and the grand piano which used to belong to David Foster and has been autographed by hundreds of stars. Take a wine tour and listen to the fascinating history of how the winery got its start (one of the first in this area!) Get to understand the passion that the owner has for this fabulous valley. Taking a tour will allow you to see the magnificent wine cellar carved out of volcanic rock and view the priceless private wine tasting room where there is even a bottle that was given to the winery from Kate and William on their visit. The views of the valley and the lake from the property are stunning. Their gift shop has some amazing finds and is well worth a look. The dining room is first class and offers some delicious food. We did another tour yesterday and want to thank Anna for a fabulous tour and tasting. She is fantastic and has a great knowledge and passion for the product they offer and to this special place. Thank you Anna for a truly great experience!

A short walk from our hotel in West Kelowna, it was a very worthwhile lunch overlooking the hills outside, under cover, sampling the local wine. Its a set menu with a wine flight, so don't take the car. Our server was a lovely Japanese lady who was very knowledgeable about the wine and the food we were presented with. Its a lovely walk through the fields from downtown and buses seem to regularly pass close by. We're glad we took this recommendation from the hotel.
