Tinhorn Creek Winery

Tinhorn Creek Winery ~ Oliver

Tinhorn Creek, just outside of Oliver is an award winning winery. Our winery is the product of friends (the Shaunessys and the Oldfields) deciding to go into business together. We started from humble beginnings – like having barrels of wine in the basement of a house. And we decided to plant a few more vines, for a total of 150 acres. That’s a lot of vines.

After almost 20 years, we’re still laughing. Often at ourselves – and at each other.

We grow grapes and we make wine. There are many steps between the field and the bottle, but at the end of the day it’s about farming the land responsibly, having fun, and making wines to share with family and friends.

Because that’s what we are: friends, family – and friends who become family.

Painted Rock Winery

Painted Rock Winery ~ Penticton

Named # 1 Winery in BC at the 2011 Wine Access Canadian Wine Awards, Painted Rock sits on a spectacular bench overlooking Skaha Lake near Penticton, BC. This 60-acre property has a unique micro-climate particularly suited to the production of premium wines worthy of the most discriminating palates.

Envisioned as a family-run estate winery, Painted Rock draws its inspiration from proprietors John and Trish Skinner. The Skinner’s philosophy is rooted in the simple idea that wine should be made for friends and family to enjoy. With dedication to quality and respect for the terroir, Painted Rock Winery ensures that each grape is of superior quality, proving that the best wines are made in the vineyard.
