New to us winery - good reds - bought some to bring home to enjoy again and again. Good to know that the family tradition keeps going - the owner is the 8th generation making wine - this shows they know what they are doing.

One of our Okanagan favorites - they make really good wines. We've been here several times and most recently enjoyed a lovely wine tasting followed by several purchases. The tasting room / shop is just the right size - small. No-one I know wants to wine taste with a bus tour...

Located off of highway 97, 8th Generation winery is a cute little stop with a friendly staff and fantastic wines. Stefanie (the owner) was extremely helpful and eager to share information about their various wines and their processes. They have everything from sparkling wines to dry Rieslings, full-bodied reds to a sweet late harvest. A chart at the tasting counter provides guests with a guide of their fantastic wines and the staff is also more than willing to help find a wine that suits your palate. We ended up purchasing quite a few bottles of wines and 8th generation was able to ship them home for us. The only complaint is that they don't have all of their wines available for tasting (understandably) so we did end up taking a risk on a few bottles, but I know we won't be disappointed! Thank you for the fabulous experience! We can't wait to visit again.

This was a great wine tasting experience! While 8th lacks the fabulous views and fancy store of others, what we learned on this tasting and the wines we came away with more than made up for the lack of window dressing!

Don't miss this winery. They are passionate about their product and it shows.

I really enjoyed the wine tasting here, particularly the Rieslings and the ice wine. The location was simple, just a metal building, which I liked. Overall, my favourite wine tasting while in the area. The wine tasting is free if you buy any wine.
