One of the many wonderful things about living in Kelowna is the proximity to wineries. Yes, we have plenty of beaches, an incredible lake, and a great city vibe but where else in the world are you able to get all that and locally grown and produced wine right outside your door? Here are just a few of the wineries you can visit near Kestrel Ridge.
Summerhill Pyramid Winery, just as the name implies, actually ages their wines in a replica of Egypt's Great Pyramid. The international award winning organic winery has done taste comparisons for three years, showing an overwhelming preference for wine aged in the pyramid versus the exact same wine aged elsewhere. To visit Summerhill from Kestrel Ridge, it’s a mere four minute drive or 2.2km away.
Established in 1928 on the Southern slopes of Kelowna on spectacular Okanagan real estate, St. Hubertus & Oak Bay winery is a short seven minute drive from Kestrel Ridge. They offer daily tours to taste their 100% estate grown wines that reflect the amazing terroir of the Okanagan valley. You can find their award-winning winery on Lakeshore Road.
If you love all things sustainable, organic, and eco-friendly, CedarCreek Winery is the place to visit. The winery was recently designated as organic by Ecocert in 2019 and prides itself on sustainable farming practices. Interestingly, they have also added honey bees to help their harvest, cover crops to naturally maintain the soil, and chickens to help with kitchen waste from their highly-rated restaurant, Home Block. You can find CedarCreek in just under an eight minute drive from Kestrel Ridge.
Known not only for their Rieslings but also their delectable Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, Tantalus is one of Okanagan’s best wineries. The winery offers breathtaking lake views and a stunning gallery-style tasting room surrounded by the works of artist Dempsey Bob. From your luxury paired home at Kestrel Ridge, Tantalus is only a short 11 minute drive.
Nagging Doubt prides itself on producing a true, artisanal wine. Owner Rob Westbury who answered his previously unrequited dreams of opening a winery (hence the name Nagging Doubt) uses a combination of modern and centuries-old winemaking techniques, including natural fermentations and foot stomping. This hidden gem of a winery is less than a 15 minute drive away from Kestrel Ridge.
