D’Angelo Estate Winery

Experience a taste of Italy on the Naramata Bench at D’Angelo Estate Winery. The owner, Sal, was the first individual grower-vitner producing wines in both British Columbia and Ontario.

The Naramata Bench isn’t necessarily renowned for red wines (yet!) but if you prefer red wines over white, D’Angelo should be top of your list to visit. They have the largest block of Tempranillo grapes on the Naramata Bench and generally only produce a very small amount of white wine per year (Viognier).

Tastings at D’Angelo are held under a covered area, just outside the wine shop. Tastings are 30 minutes long and usually include 4 different wines. The wine server may also offer the chance to try some dessert wines.

D’Angelo is one of the few Naramata Bench wineries to still give free tastings. In addition, they do not have a reservation system so all tastings are offered on a first come, first serve basis.

Only a few minutes walk from the KVR Trail, D’Angelo Winery is the perfect detour on a walking or biking wine tour. The property is gorgeous too, featuring a large grassy space stretching towards Okanagan Lake.

This spacious picnic area makes D’Angelo a great destination for families, especially since the owners provide some toys for children to enjoy. There is a bocce court as well.
