Tantalus Vineyard is situated on the eastern slopes of the Okanagan Valley, overlooking the shores of Lake Okanagan and the township of Kelowna. Originally known as Pioneer Vineyards, the site was first planted to table grapes in 1927 and today is known as the oldest continuously producing vineyard in British Columbia. Enjoy premium, single vineyard wines in a stunning, gallery-style tasting room, surrounded by works of art from some of Canada’s most highly-acclaimed artists.
Meadow Vista Honey Wines
Meadow Vista was born out of the idea that when you combine a passion for farm fresh ingredients, wine & protecting the honey bees, you can create a line- up of honey wine and bee-inspired food products for wine lovers and foodies to savour. Founded in 2009 by wellness and wine expert Judie Barta, Meadow Vista uses fresh local fruits, spices and BC honey to produce their authentic wines.
Double Cross Cidery
Part of an orchard and farm that offers a wide variety of fruit and organic vegetables during the growing season, tree ripened fruit and vegetables are picked daily. The orchard also produces their own Function Junction 100% apple juice. In 2012 , Double Cross Cidery was launched.
There are now four fruit iced ciders and a hard apple cider available.
