Description: Overlooking rows of Pinot Noir & Chardonnay set against the Okanagan Lake, our outdoor Terrace Restaurant complements our wine's natural affinities with cuisine that is locally, sustainably, and seasonally sourced. By growing much of our own produce in the estate Varietal Garden and working hand-in-hand with local farmers, we are able to provide a spectacular culinary experience highlighting the bountiful ingredients & world-class wines that characterize this region. By partnering with local farmers, our menu continuously evolves to incorporate the freshest ingredients. Similar to our philosophy in the vineyards, we have a firm belief in sustainable and bio-dynamic agricultural practices, including local foraging, organic farming, and the Vancouver Aquarium's OceanWise program. Even our own honeybees help sustain the estate gardens while providing wildflower honey to be used by our culinary team.

That is how Mission Hill host welcomed us even though we had reservations which they couldn't find. They reluctantly set up a table for 7, told us they were fully booked even though after two hours only half was occupied. The food arrived cold, undercooked and not prepared according to the menu; aesthetically pleasing only. It was like sitting in a blizzard, cold and windy. If they want their guests to be happy and comfortable they should have better dining accommodations when the weather changes. Only after we didn't order dessert because we were so cold, they offered us blankets. It was a most disappointing experience and we have no intentions of going back. The winery and views are lovely.

The sampler menu with wine accompaniment was outstanding as was the service. The patio is outside in a breezeway but is warm with heaters if the evening is on the cool side. The view from up top is spectacular.

Lovely grounds, interesting tour and wonderful gift shop.

Meal was awesome. Wine even better. First time trying a Late Harvest wine. Will most certainly be purchasing this in the near future!

The host was rude when we arrived. The food was cold and undercooked. The restaurant has an outside venue only and it was dark and cold in spite of the heaters. The wait staff offered us blankets at the end of our meal. The wine was not to my taste.
To balance this, the winery & view were lovely.

One of the most beautiful outdoor settings. Though a cool evening, we were kept warm by the overhead heaters.

We each had the six course meal with wine pairings. Tremendous food. Perfectly prepared and presented.

Service was five star. One of the best.
