As their slogan goes…everyone needs a little therapy. Wine therapy that is! And what better place to get it then this stunning property overlooking Okanagan Lake.
Therapy’s bright and airy tasting room sits on top of a vineyard slope, with plenty of floor to ceiling windows to take it all in.
With a little tongue in cheek attitude, Therapy has the simple aim to produce tasty and approachable wines to be enjoyed. Much as the wine is easy to like, the pricing is varied to suit different budgets.
Visited Therapy Vineyards pre-2017? Put it down as a priority to re-visit. The concept is the same but the new owners have elevated the guest experience.
The brand new tasting room is simply stunning and is accompanied by five gorgeous, modern suites. And the views are still as gorgeous as ever!

Wine Tastings and Wine Shop
The tasting room and wine shop is the centerpiece of Therapy Vineyards. The modern tasting room features floor to ceiling windows on two sides, offering spectacular views of Okanagan Lake and the mountains beyond.
The oval shaped tasting bar has plenty of space for multiple groups. Tastings can also be conducted outside, on the ground floor patio or on the roof top patio as well.
Tastings are $15 per person, with this fee waived with the purchase of wine.
Therapy Vineyards works on a first come, first serve system, with reservations only required for larger groups (six or more guests).

The Board and Hungry food truck currently has residency on Therapy’s ground floor patio and is open every weekend. Roman style pizzas and grazing boards (featuring BC made meats, cheeses and preserves) are Board and Hungry’s specialty, but you’ll also find a selection of tasty snacks and one-off specials.
Food can be enjoyed on either patio (head to the roof top for the best views!) with a glass of wine. Many dishes can also be boxed or wrapped ‘to go’ for guests can’t stay.
The Inn at Therapy Vineyards features five luxurious suites featuring high end features such as spa-lake bathrooms, wine fridges, king sized beds and granite countertops.
The suites are modern and spacious, with plenty of windows to take in the beautiful views outside. Each guest room has direct access to a deck or patio area.
Breakfast is included with every stay, served in the communal dining area. Outside, there is a huge hot tub and cosy fire pit area.
