A trip worth the ride up the hill. The view of the valley is fantastic. The owner, she calls herself " Crazy Hazel " is a delight. She will keep you laughing and is a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area. The Wine is excellent and their prices will shock you, they definitely could charge more, but they don't. Wine tasting is free of charge and they have a big selection of wines to taste. I bet you can't leave without buying a bottle or two or maybe even a case !!!!!

Stopped by the winery for some wine tasting. Excellent atmosphere, location and most of all...excellent hosts. Tasted a few different excellent wines, ordered a case and had it shipped to our home as we travelled via motorcycle. Shipping price was very reasonable and wine was packed extremely well. Price of wine was mid range, but we feel the value was excellent. Cheers

My wife I and found our way to the Larch Hills Winery south of Salmon Arm, BC. The highest altitude winery in North America, Larch Hills is owned by Jack and Hazel Manser who, on the day we visited, were greeting customers and providing samples in the facility's quaint tasting room.

The winery has a few branded clothing items and wine accessories for sale, but let's face it - you're there to try some product. On the day we visited there were around a dozen different wines to sample, or you could buy a bottle and some snacks and enjoy the time on the patio, looking out over the expanse of the winery and the nearby cliffs. But don't drink too much - the winding road downhill back to the highway (which reminds us of some we saw in St. Lucia) has a speed limit of 30 km/h (18 mph) for good reason.

This is a very nice place to visit on a warm summer day.

We were intrigued by a magazine ad which claimed the winery to be the highest altitude winery in the continent. The drive was indeed up a steep road, but it was worth it. Hazel Manzer, one of the two proprietors greeted us warmly and led us through a tasting of their pleasant wines, some with very unique names and pedigrees. It's possible to buy wine by the glass, which is what we did and enjoyed our picnic lunch on their pretty shaded patio, overlooking the winery and across the valley to hills in the distance. Definitely a place to stop and enjoy the landscape. Read others' reviews for more about the wine.

The winery boasts numerous awards for many of its very good wines. It is situated high on the side of a steep hillside with expiring views of the Enderby Cliffs and lowland farm country in the far distance. The owners are very friendly and knowledgable about their craft. Certainly worth the short drive from Salmon Arm at anytime of the year.
