Our winery is evidence of what one man with vision, determination, and a little luck can accomplish. Proprietor and winemaker, Ted Kane, developed a passion for winemaking at a young age. Many Alberta winters were spent learning and planning how to accomplish his ultimate goal; owning and operating a winery in Canada's premiere wine producing area, Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country. 10 years after acquiring it, this perfect piece of raw land has been transformed into a 7 acre vineyard producing several varieties of high quality fruit, a fully functioning winery with a boutique tasting room and, most importantly, our family home. Though the vineyard often demands his time, there is a good chance that Ted will be the one welcoming you to the tasting bar. He loves to share his knowledge, experience and high quality wines. We specialize in the Bordeaux varietals, but also have a selection of white wines and a unique, full bodied Malbec Rose. Purchase a bottle of wine, compliment it with a cheese plate and relax beside the vines in our picnic area. Cheers!

River Stone is the best winery in the whole Okanagan! My favorite place of all the wineries to taste delicious wines, relax on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view of the vineyard. This is a small family run winery and the owners are lovely people. Servers, Bob and Julie are equally amazing and take your wine tasting experience to... More

We have just completed another winery tour of the south Okanagan vineyards. RIVER STONE ESTATE WINERY was recommended to us by a very established, pricey winery that we have been visiting for years. This is a smaller winery set near the river with a super friendly proprietor and amazing wines! We purchased the Splash (rose), 2014 Stones Throw and a... More

The tasting room is located in the basement of the house, which is located along a long drive through the vines. Once parked, we were met by the friendly resident dog. Follow the driveway down and around the house to the tasting room, which has a nice patio for warmer days. The lady in the tasting room was very pleasant... More

Family owned and run vineyard which can be strongly recommended - unlike the larger establishments here tasting is civilised with a well informed server who knows all the wines well. No pressure to buy just willingness to give a taste of their products and explain how they are made and how best served. Ted, the owner, has made wine since... More

They took time to speak about their wines, their best choices. They added to the tasting two unusual wines they found would fit our... More

We were fortunate enough to stay at the River Stone's Cottage for a week. Love the fact that the cottage's history was outlined in a very informative booklet, so you could really appreciate the place. A charming cottage, with a quality fully stocked kitchen, making our stay very comfortable. Anything which needed attending to, was dealt with promptly. The air... More

My husband and I stopped this evening! What a great experience. Bob was our server and he was just lovely! Informative, insightful, knowledgeable and helpful. What a great experience. He made sure we tried every single wine and we loved them all! They were less sweet than some places. This place is worth finding!
