Painted Rock Estate Winery

Painted Rock embraces the traditions of the old world and the imagination of the new world. Set in the Okanagan Wine Country of British Columbia, Canada, Painted Rock has arrived at an opportune moment in time. The Skinner's knew that the Okanagan was starting to gain international interest, and they recognized it's potential to produce serious wines. The Okanagan's combination of hot, dry summers, cool mountain air, and unique microclimates makes this a spectacular place to produce wine.

Painted Rock sits on a spectacular bench overlooking the eastern shore of Skaha Lake in Penticton, B.C. This 60-acre property has a unique microclimate that is particularly suited to the production of premium wines. Since the early 1900's, this orchard harvested apricots until the orchard was felled due to a gypsy moth infestation in the late 1980's. The property, known locally as “The Blackhawk”, laid fallow while under the ownership of another winery until John Skinner and his family acquired and contoured it in 2004, and then began planting in 2005. This family-owned estate winery aspires toward a single vision of excellence that maintains the integrity of the wine and never homogenizes the brand.
