Overview

Situated on the banks of the North Thompson River in Kamloops, Debbie and John Woodward invite you to their "Private Heaven". The result of their years of patience, care and quiet passion: PRIVATO. Crafted in small quantities, PRIVATO creates premium-quality, single-vineyard Burgundy wines. From their quaint and intimate tasting room to the picnic area and vineyards, the experience truly exudes a sense of charm. And as Debbie puts it, "there is not a day that goes by that we don't truly appreciate and marvel at the loveliness of the vineyard right outside our back door. I'm convinced that the experience our visitors have here along with the quality of the wine is what brings them back again and again." TASTING ROOM HOURS May through October Thursday through Sunday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm December 1-20 10:00 am to 4:00 pm For private tastings on any other day or time please call to reserve. VINE TO WINE TOURS $10.00 per person Groups of 4 or more people Reservations required Pets and Children Welcome Wheel Chair Accessible
