Deep Roots Winery

The ‘Deep Roots’ in question are the Hardman family’s 100+ years of experience farming the Naramata Bench. As many as four generations of family members have toiled land locally!

The Hardman family sold grapes to other wineries for years before deciding to create their own winery. All vineyard work is still done by hand at the winery’s two properties on the Bench, enabling complete control from soil to bottle.

And clearly, the work has paid off, with Deep Roots winning numerous industry awards year after year. But the team remain humble; don’t be surprised if you are served by one of the family during your tasting!

The smart but welcoming tasting room features a wonderful covered patio, bordered with colourful flowers and trailing vines. The patio looks out to a large lawn area and sloping vineyard, with sparkling Okanagan Lake as the backdrop. Take a sip and enjoy the vistas!

The tasting fee at Deep Roots is not inexpensive ($10) but it is not refundable with purchase. We find, however, that the tasting experience is comprehensive for the price and the team is quite keen to share a good range of wines (especially outside of busy times).

While visiting, be sure to say hello to Smokey and Kenya, the resident winery dogs.
