Situated on the banks of the North Thompson River in Kamloops, Debbie and John Woodward invite you to their "Private Heaven". The result of their years of patience, care and quiet passion: PRIVATO.

Crafted in small quantities, PRIVATO creates premium-quality, single-vineyard Burgundy wines. From their quaint and intimate tasting room to the picnic area and vineyards, the experience truly exudes a sense of charm. And as Debbie puts it, "there is not a day that goes by that we don't truly appreciate and marvel at the loveliness of the vineyard right outside our back door. I'm convinced that the experience our visitors have here along with the quality of the wine is what brings them back again and again."

Beautiful setting for this small winery. Nice scenic drive and friendly staff. We did a tasting and thought the wines were very good. We bought a bottle of the chardonnay to bring home.

We went to Privado on a Divine tour. We were pleasantly surprised as we didn't know that it was on the Woodwards tree farm! They were super friendly and had some nice wines for a fairly new winery! We will definitely go back!

Privato Vineyard is located past Kamloop's Westsyde area along the North Thompson River. The property is gorgeous and the tasting room spectacular. We came back for the Pinot Noir this year and happily was still very good. Have to say, though, I preferred the whites from the other Kamloops wineries. But they have the best red.

Privato was so beautiful to drive up to. About 30 mins out of the way from the other wineries with no traffic. The interior was amazing though, worth seeing for sure. It looked like a remade cellar for barrels and wine and it was gorgeous. I myself didn't like any of the wines but my boyfriend bought a bottle of... More

This is a very scenic spot and the entire experience was great. The service was good with a good description of wines and tasty wine as well. Other local vineyards do not offer the quaint atmosphere.

This beautiful, scenic area of Kamloops is such a great spot for a winery. You are about 15 to 20 minutes from the downtown or the uptown areas, yet once you arrive you enjoy a very non-urban setting. Lovely wines with the uniqueness of this arid region in a country garden setting. Continue down the road further to take a... More
