Celebrated Valentines with a lovely three hour, three course dinner while enjoying the sounds of a very talented Harpist. Beautiful Slow food, savoury wine, soft sounds, in an inspiring environment. Scored Five for a Romantic event.

My wife and I are local and visit this fine dining establishment a few times each year and have NEVER been disappointed. Great wines at relatively reasonable prices combined with an energetic and creative menu focussed on locally sourced produce, all served with impeccable skill.

Description
The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.
