We've enjoyed Road 13 Wines in the past and were keen to try something new from their vineyard. Perhaps it's due to the off season but our server appeared to tolerate us as we'd interrupted her day. She was either not knowledgeable or couldn't be bothered to answer any questions we had regarding the blends and types of grapes used.... More

Stopped in for a tasting of Reds. Really enjoyed the Honest John's as well as the 75k. We came hear as we recently enjoyed a bottle of the 75k at a local restaurant. The lady hosting us provided great service and you could tell she was very proud of the wines she was serving. We had our lunch with us... More

This winery is at the end of Road 13. They Attempted to build a small castle look a like, but failed. Out of place in Oliver. But there wines are better than the building, after you get past the front door.

This was the final winery I want to during my solo wine trip through the Okanagan before hitting Osoyoos. When I pulled into the parking lot, I thought I was at some type of weird hotel, because a medieval castle in the Okanagan looks a bit out of place. I do agree about the front door comment people make, it... More

Our group of 6 booked the chocolate and wine tasting and absolutely loved it. Booking the tasting experience is so worth it as you get to sit in a beautiful room overlooking the vineyard and relax as Kate explains all the wines to us and paired certain wines with very yummy chocolate. The owner Mick introduced himself and it was... More

A lot of hype, but does not live up too reviews. Wines are palatable but lacking in flavour. Palate is demeane...no formidable aromas, structure or complexity. Disappointing to say the lest.

Hi Farnorte, Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the wines. Our wines have gotten us placed in the Top Ten Wineries of Canada for the last 8 years, with a ranking of number three in the country overall. That is the most consistent performance of any winery in Canada. More

I have been to the winery many times, including meal functions and attended their wine festival tastings in multiple cities. While they make very good wines, are located in a beautiful winery and location, I have never written a review before. Now I must write one based on my latest visit due to our outstanding experience. It all starts with... More
