These unique circumstances, paired with passionate and talented growers, vintners and boosters result in award-winning wines that have become an unmistakable calling card for Naramata.
Both visually stunning and emotionally stirring, Naramata has soul. The magical locale offers a sense of peace, beauty and perspective not easily replicated elsewhere. Naramata extends an invitation for both visitors and locals to slow down and open up to life’s simple pleasures.
