The View Winery

The View Winery is on a piece of property that has been in the Turton/Ward family for 5 generations. Historically, apples were grown on the property. In the mid 1990’s a transition began and orchard rows were replaced with vines. Spartans and McIntosh gave way to Gewurtzraminer, Reisling, Ehrenfelser, Optima and Pinotage.

Our newly renovated wineshop opened in the spring of 2012, and we are looking forward to your visit. Original plans were to build a new retail store and tasting room at the top of the property hence the name “The View”. However, we have grown to love and embrace the unique historical qualities of our family property, and so instead chose the original apple packinghouse for our wineshop and winery. Built by George Ward in 1922, the packinghouse is the last from it's era in the Kelowna area. The original farmhouse for the property still stands beside the winery along with a huge walnut tree planted by Nana Turton in the 1930s.With an eye on the future but a keen sense of celebrating our past we now look forward to sharing this important part of Okanagan history with everyone. We think Great Granddad would be proud.
