Located right on Naramata Road, Moraine is one of the most convenient Naramata Bench wineries to visit.
This winery is also one of the most impressive, with the grand, newly renovated wine shop and tasting room offering unrestricted panoramas of the surrounding vineyards and Okanagan Lake.
Moraine is owned and operated by husband-wife team Oleg and Svetlana. The vineyards are lovingly named after their daughters.
The winery gets its name from the Naramata Bench’s signature clay bluffs, which were created by glacial activity thousands of years ago.
With such a large and wide-ranging portfolio of fruit-forward wines, Moraine is an ideal stop for wine-touring groups with varied tastes.
Moraine Winery specialises in seated tastings, held on a second-floor patio adjacent to the wine shop. This covered space offers stunning panoramas of the vineyard below, as well as Okanagan Lake and surrounding mountains.
The tasting style is relaxed, with the wine server pouring wine, sharing knowledge and tasting notes and then leaving to allow the guest to enjoy the wine at leisure.
