Wines of Canada
By Robert A Bell
Mission Hill Family Estate Winery
On the hills of West Kelowna sits one of Canada's proudest and most successful wineries Mission Hills Family Estate Winery. Canada’s only five-time winner of Winery of the Year and receiving multiple best varietal awards on the international stage Mission Hill has helped establish Canada's wines around the world.
Designed by Tom Kundig, with monastic-influence, Mission Hill Family Estate offers an escape from daily life.
Guests enter the main winery grounds through contemporary stone arches hand-chiseled by Master Stone Masons, Tony Rojac and Andrew Swinley. Carved from one five-ton block of Indiana Limestone, the archway is held together by a single keystone bearing the von Mandl family crest.
In 1994 Mission Hill Family Estate put the Okanagan Valley on the map by winning the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London for 'Best Chardonnay in the World' and at the time the Master of Wine Judges were in such disbelief they re-tasted all of the wines and Mission Hill won a second time.
