Nighthawk Vineyards is a boutique family farm gate winery, overlooking the scenic Green Lake valley above Okanagan Falls. The winery was founded in 2002 by Daniel Bibby and Christy Bibby. Nighthawk Vineyards has been harvesting high quality grapes since 2002 and over the past year has evolved from vineyard to boutique farm gate winery.
The name is a tribute to the Nighthawks that soar over the vineyard, these amazing birds return each spring to make this scenic valley their home and nest during the growing season. The unique micro-climate of Okanagan Falls provides a rare habitat perfectly suited to these majestic birds, and of course some of the valley's finest grape growing conditions.
Dakota Bibby is the winemaker. Their featured wine is Gewürztraminer. They also grow chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and a little Malbec.
Their 2016 Chardonnay won a competition in Norway and will be stocked in 59 stores across the country.
Besides great wines and a magnificent view the winery features Charcuterie plates, outdoor patio and picnic facilities.
