Desert Hills Estate Winery is located on the Black Sage Bench, in Oliver, British Columbia.
Family-owned and operated since inception in 2003, Desert Hills cultivates 85 acres of premium vineyards at the northern tip of the Sonoran Desert.
The hot, sandy setting is ideal for producing vibrant, complex red wines. The family had transitioned their property to vines in the 1990s, prior to opening the winery.
Desert Hills has received the prestigious Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in Winemaking
(twice!) and Canada’s Best Red Wine, among many others. The three brothers that founded the winery planted some of the first Syrah grapes in the South Okanagan at the ‘Three Boys Vineyard’ which allows them to create some of the most interesting Syrah of the region.
The family’s philosophy remains that wine is grown, not just made, and they extend a great deal of
care and attention to their viticulture practices.
Their continued passion, innovation and dedication is evident in the well-made wines, and I’m excited for you to discover them!
