Origin Wines

Unfussy and fun, Origin has a simple philosophy – ‘to help you find a wine you love.’ And there’s plenty to love here, from the quality wines to the spectacular Okanagan Lake panoramas from the expansive lawn patio.

Origin is a locally owned and operated Naramata Bench winery, with the owner’s families having farmed in the Okanagan Valley for generations.

As hinted in the name, Origin’s winemakers concentrate on grape location and quality. Currently, grapes are sourced from their own vineyards on the Naramata Bench and Kaleden, the latter of which is perfect for cooler-climate grapes.

Origin has a small but solid wine portfolio, with exceptionally well-priced Meritage and Pinot Noir vintages. The Rosé is also a favourite and it usually sells out fast.

The true magic of this winery, though, is the expansive child-friendly outdoor space and exceptional lake views. Choose between picnic tables and Adirondack chairs for seating, or even bring a blanket to sit right on the grassy lawn. Games and toys are provided for families.
