Big selection of wines to taste with Calona Wines and Sandhill Wines in adjacent rooms, so you should be able to find one or two that you like. The people conducting the tastings in each room were both personable and accommodating.

Calona owns a handful of different types of wine from Sandhill to Wayne Gretzky. The Sandhill Winery tasting room is attached to Calona so you can hit both tasting rooms in one stop. The Calona side of the tasting room is much more authentic and rustic looking giving a great atmosphere, but could definitely benefit from some A/C. It was... More

We went wine tasting here (2 couples) and had a wonderful experience. Our wine tasting guide was so knowledgeable and had a most pleasant personality. He talked about the history of Calona Vineyards from the early days until now. He also talked about the Wayne Gretzky wines. We ended up buying a few of their wines because they were so... More

Combined with Sandhill winery, Calona is the older sister winery downtown Kelowna and produces their original brand of wines along with the Wayne Gretsky wines we Edmontonians are familiar with. Calona wines are affordable and tasty, although once we tasted teh Sandhill varieties, we opted to pay a little extra to take some of those home. On a budget though,... More

I was driving home from Penticton on Sunday and decided to stop for a wine tasting.. 1. Sandhill side- the man behind the counter ignored us 2. When we asked 'Rik' (our tastings server) which wine he recommended to try for our tasting he said 'I dont know, they are all on the wall behind you, go look.' Then he... More

We stopped at this winery for the "SandHill" winery part (as opposed to Calona) as our first stop after landing in Kelowna. The staff was very friendly and we tasted some excellent wines that offered great value for the price. A good place to stop if you're in the Kelowna area.

I can’t name the very best part of this visit because there were so many highlights. This is not your pretentious winery. This place has good people, serving very good wine at very affordable prices.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this winery, but was pleasantly surprised. It was a bright day out thankfully as the power in that area was out when we arrived. There were a couple of tours finishing up and staff were fantastic in making sure we were able to sample some different wines regardless of the power outage. We did... More
