The Hawthorne Mountain Vineyards site was settled in the early 1900s by the Hawthorne Brothers. Located a scenic 5-kilometre drive southwest of Okanagan Falls on Green Lake Road, the winery is set high above the Okanagan Valley, where the panoramic view of the valley and surrounding lakes is breathtaking.

One of the region’s original plantings, the first vines on the property were established in the early 1960s. Some of those same vines exist today. The vineyard now boasts over 170 acres, and an extensive planting program of top quality vinifera grapes is currently being undertaken. Other improvements, part of a major expansion, include a new crush platform, wine press, custom designed multi-purpose tanks, and an expanded barrel program.

Winemaker Bruce Ewert, a native of British Columbia, focuses production on premium wines, including Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The winery’s offerings also include wonderful Icewines as well as bottle fermented sparkling wines. Bruce has been a winemaker in Canada for eight years. He has also spent several years making wine in Australia and California.

In 1998 Hawthorne Mountain Vineyards was awarded Best Overall Package, a prestigious award for label design, at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London, England. Most recently Hawthorne Mountain Vineyards received 89 points in Wine Spectator magazine for the 1997 Ehrenfelser Icewine, as well as 88 points for the 1997 Gewurztraminer.

Sun-drenched slopes, pure mountain waters, cool evening desert breezes and careful nurturing create grapes of spectacular flavour and quality.

The Old Settlers home, made of hand-split stone, conveys a sense of old world timelessness. Nestled high above the valley floor, it stands overlooking the vineyards and lakes. The wine shop is located in the front of the house. Bring a friend, bring a picnic or snack, take the time to sit and enjoy this truly beautiful and unique site.

Venturing through the wine shop, or around the house, will lead you to the patio, shaded by a grape arbor and commanding a large, panoramic view of the valley and lakes

So how will you know if you like our wines? We make wine from lots of different grape varieties, but only you will know what tastes best to you. So come up to the wine shop and enjoy the flavours grown right here on the farm.

The wine shop is open daily from 9am - 5pm.
