Awesome Winery and tasting room over looking the Similkameen River & Valley. Their wines are soooo delicious; it was difficult to say which I liked the most. So, I bought 2 over their Ice-wines;) We will definitely come here again next year. And we love it is all Organic, too!

They have delicious wines. I mentioned I leaned towards the sweeter side and I got to taste an amazing variety. One tasted like liquid apple pie and the another like juicy, succulent pear. I bought both!

Do yourself a favor and stop here for a tasting! Award winning fruit wines. The Plum based dessert wine is our fave. They also sell fruit from their orchard.

If you are a fan of peach, apple, pear, plum or cherry wines, then this is a must place to go to. It's been around since the 1970s and they have excellent wines that are lovley to sip and drink in their own. I do wish they were closer to home because I'd buy wine every week from them. Only...

On a short trip to Osoyoos last week, my friend and I hit this winery on our way home, and boy are we glad we did! When we parked out front of this winery, we were instantly over the moon! The cute little winery sits right next to the river with a bit of tree coverage. They even have a... More

Had these at home and it's by far the best wine we had from the Okanagan valley! Since then they came to Vancouver for wine tasting and I picked up a case and a half... Told... More

We stopped by this charming vineyard late one morning when they were harvesting ripe fruit (peaches, I think). The coolness of the shady tasting room was a nice treat in contrast to the warm day outside. The wines were an even bigger treat. It's a family operation and "dad" introduced us to several of their award-winning fruit wines (we took... More

Great fruit wines in addition to reds and whites. The tasting room was very busy but each of us got individual attention. The gallery art was impressive and the whole experience one I would highly recommend. We bought a number of bottles in enjoy in the future (if we manage to get them home!!).

Hidden off the highway in Cawston BC, this was our last organic winery stop on a 10 day wine tour and by far our favorite small winery..A small tasting room but lots of fine fruit wines, as well as the traditional reds and whites. It was cool and rainy and the proprietor, Steve Venebles was more than happy to spend... More

Love stopping at Forbidden Fruit winery, just outside Keremeos and worth the short drive off the highway. The property includes an organic orchard and is beautifully situated near the river. The small wine shop offers samples of their award winning wines as well as wine by the glass to enjoy on the outside patio. Friendly service, great wine and relaxing... More
