After 15 years in their modest looking and sized tasting room, Wild Goose completed construction of its new tasting room and wine shop in the summer of 2012. The new building has a spacious tasting room with a panoramic north facing patio overlooking the Stoney Slope Riesling Vineyard with Peach Cliff Mountain in the backdrop They also opened the Smoke and Oak Bistro. The Wild Goose Bistro team believes in using local products and flavours in new ways to bring the world of cuisine to Okanagan Falls.
Noted author and blogger John Schreiner wrote "the family-owned Wild Goose Vineyards has always been in the top 10 of my favourites. The wines are reliable and affordingly priced. Even more important, the Kruger family which owns the winery, is among the most pleasant families in the B.C. wine industry"
