Lake Breeze Vineyards

Perched high on a hill overlooking Okanagan Lake, visiting the sprawling Mediterranean-inspired complex of Lake Breeze is like stepping into a little piece of Italy.

The experience starts right in the parking lot, with the views stretching as far as Peachland to the north. A mosaic of vineyard workers hints at the architectural details to come. A walk down the driveway soon reveals the hidden gem that awaits below.

Wine tastings are offered in the sunny courtyard, just beyond the entrance to the winery’s Patio Restaurant. A collection of wine barrels are used as tables, perfect for individual group tastings. There are umbrellas for shade.

Named after the winds that blow along the Naramata bluffs all year round, Lake Breeze Vineyards has a large wine portfolio. It may be clich√©, but there’s a little something for everyone here, and that includes different budgets too.

The first wines on this property were planted in 1985, making them some of the oldest on the Naramata Bench. The winemakers here practice minimal intervention on their wide variety of varietals, preferring to highlight the natural expression of each grape.
