Find Your Inner Sommelier While Staying at a Kelowna Hotel

Get a first hand introduction to some of the best winery restaurants in the valley while staying at a Kelowna hotel.

Now that you’ve got your Kelowna hotel room booked, it’s time to start looking for restaurants to visit during your stay. Because it’s springtime in the Okanagan, the wineries are beginning to open their doors to the onslaught of self-titled sommeliers ready to kick off wine season. Besides booking a couple Okanagan wine tours, experience the local wine and fare first hand at some of these fabulous winery restaurants.  


Gray Monk Winery – Grapevine Restaurant

With stunning views of Okanagan Lake from the patio, the Grapevine Restaurant doesn’t disappoint on scenery or taste. Offering lunch, happy hour, and dinner menus, this restaurant has been described as a hidden gem for all things delicious. The menu is complete with seasonal items created using local ingredients and includes a wine recommendation listing with each item as well. If you’re looking to master the art of wine pairings, swing into the Grapevine Restaurant and order a couple of items off the menu. You won’t be disappointed. 


Summerhill Pyramid Winery – Sunset Organic Bistro

If you pride yourself on an organic diet, the Sunset Organic Bistro should be added to your Kelowna must-see list. This world-class gourmet restaurant features items grown in their very own gardens as well as items brought in from local organic farmers. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this restaurant caters to a wide variety of food-loving taste buds. From breakfast to go to a five-course dinner, this little bistro will have you coming back for more than one meal. 


Quail’s Gate Winery – Old Vines Restaurant

This holiday hot spot has been celebrated as one of the top restaurants in Canada. Besides hosting a weekly brunch every Sunday, the Old Vines Restaurant is also open daily with a lunch and dinner menu available. By choosing fresh, locally produced items for their menu, the chef at Old Vines works hard to ensure each dish not only reflects the region but also Quail’s Gate’s award-winning vintages. If fine wine is something you look forward to every time you book a Kelowna hotel, be sure to book a reservation here too.
