As one of the first five wineries to pioneer British Columbia’s wine industry, Gray Monk has built an international reputation growing and supporting BC’s distinctive VQA wines. Gray Monk introduced the revered Pinot Gris grape to Canada from Alsace, France over 45 years ago. Since then, this award-winning wine has become the Okanagan Valley’s signature varietal and a favourite of serious collectors and wine aficionados all over the world.
Gray Monk Estate Winery is surrounded by 25 acres of vineyard overlooking the sparkling waters of Okanagan Lake. The Tasting Room is open year-round, facility tours are offered June through September, and unique tasting experiences will be a weekend highlight during the Summer.
At the restaurant, enjoy seasonal farm-to-table creations perfectly paired with Gray Monk’s cool climate red and aromatic white wines. Spectacular lake views from a patio perched above the vineyard completes the experience. The restaurant will open in May, with plans to offer culinary experiences year-round.
"Had a personal tour and it was wonderful. I highly recommend if. We felt like royalty. It was the very first wine tasting for my friend and she loved it."
