On the spur of the moment, I decided to go and visit this winery as I’m driving the wine route. It’s such a fun and fabulous winery. I knew some of their wines as I’d had them in Calgary. They have fun t-shirts (I bought one) and fun dish towels (I bought 2). Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They have soda crackers for you to munch on as you’re trying out wines. Definitely worth the visit!

Hi Mishka01,

Thanks for your recent visit to the winery and taking the time to give your feedback. We're glad you decided to stop in to see what we have to offer. Though we are on limited hours at this time, we are open year round for tastings & shopping. It's great that you decided to come right to the source, as though we are widely found in Calgary not all of our wines are available our of province - and our 2 award winning sparkling wines are winery exclusive. The soda crackers are simply meant as a palate cleanse, however, if you are interested in a more in depth tasting that involves cheese pairing, we do now offer an elevated tasting experience that gives you a more intimate & educational experience - we recommend you try it on your next visit! Cheers & thanks again for the feedback.

We enjoyed the flight of beer in the saloon.
During the wine tasting, we felt a little rushed, and some of us got more info than others from our server.
One of our party was pregnant when we visited, and there was a little gelato bar to order from and a good-sized shop to explore instead of wine tasting.
The patio area was comfortable with a stunning view.

Hi Kspeir,

Thanks for your recent visit to the winery and taking the time to provide us your feedback. It's great to hear you & your guests enjoyed your time with us. We are sorry to hear that your wine tasting felt rushed - while this was certainly not the intention of the wine shop staff, for those seeking a more detailed and in depth experience with our wines, we suggest taking part in the elevated tasting experience. This includes a cellar tour & barrel tasting, followed by a curated wine tasting & cheese pairing by one of our WSET certified professionals. This experience goes beyond what you will encounter in the wine shop and is a great way to expand your knowledge of our wines. We invite you to contact us via email and let us know the next time you plan to come through town, as we would love to have you join us for this experience. Thanks again for your visit & we hope you'll give us a chance to redeem ourselves.

This is one place you need to visit even if you do not drink wine. They have started serving craft beer.

The wines are very tasty and they do not need to lay down forever. You can crack one open at 3 pm one after noon and share it with a friend

Hi Lancer524,

Thanks for your recent visit to the winery and taking the time to leave us your feedback. It's fantastic to hear you enjoyed your time with us. While our theme is fun & approachable to people of all levels of wine knowledge, and our wines easy-drinking, one thing we take extremely seriously at DLV is our winemaking. This dedication to excellence speaks for itself in the accolades we've received in this year alone - including multiple Gold medals for several wines at competitions both Regional & International, and most recently our Hush was named Best BC Rose. Our goal is to have you leave with a wine you love, and a big smile on your face. Thanks again for taking the time to stop in and we hope you'll come back again soon.

This vineyard began life as a laundry for the cowboys. When the owner realised that they never changed their clothes for weeks, he opened a bordello upstairs and then trade took off!
It has a wine tasting bar for free and you can purchase wines and naughty underwear. Plus they have a restaurant overlooking the hills where you can have cheese and meat snacks, bought from the shop. We had bread, cheeses, olives and of course, wine!
Reasonable prices

Hi Brian C,

Thanks for stopping by the winery and taking the time to write a review. It's great to hear you enjoyed your visit and had fun with us. We do like to have fun with the naughty theme you mentioned, it's reflected in the winery decor, atmosphere, and the labels on our award winning wines. We believe that you should leave with a wine you love and a smile on your face. We've recently won numerous Gold Medals for our wines at competitions both local & international, as well as our Rose being named Favorite in BC. Thanks again for your visit and we hope you'll join us again next time you are in Summerland.

Went on a self guided Wine Tasting tour and ended up at Dirty Laundry for lunch. Picked out their Merlot as well as a basket picnic (four of us) and ate lunch on the vine covered deck overlooking the vineyards and KVR railway.

We had a great time, the lunch purchases were enough for four of us, the wine was fantastic, the weather was great, got to watch the steam train go by. Service was very good, complementary wine tasting with good local lore included. Worth the trip up Bottleneck Drive to experience. Tried their beer selection (4 - flight) very good as well.

Hi brentc138,

Thanks for your recent visit to the winery and taking the time to leave your feedback. It's wonderful to hear that you & your guests enjoyed yourselves and took in all we have to offer. The vine covered patio will still be open for a few weeks until the weather is too cold - however we do have heaters and a covered area to keep you cozy! Our picnics on the patio concept is very popular - we provide all the goodies you need to build a delicious picnic lunch with cheese, meats, fresh bread & other nibbles. Grab a bottle of our award winning wine and you are all set! Our Laundry Suds craft beer will also continue for another few weeks before shutting down for the season. Stay tuned to our social media for the latest updates on this. Thank you again for stopping by and we hope you'll come to visit again the next time you are in town!
