Volcanic Hills Estate Winery
Since the 1960s it was Sarwan Gidda’s dream to grow grapes that would produce world-class wines. This all began when his father, Mehtab Gidda, came to Canada from a small town in East Punjab, India. Having just $5 in his pocket and not a single word of English in his vocabulary, the dream of a better life began in 1958, when he settled in the Land of Wonder –the Okanagan Valley.
The family purchased their first property in 1963 and soon after were the largest apple farmers in West Kelowna. In 1978, Sarwan and wife Sudarshana pursued a new venture of growing grapes. Today, their 80 acres of grapes, apples and cherries are managed by Sarwan. In May 2010, the children fulfilled their father’s dream of establishing Volcanic Hills Estate Winery. You will find Sarwan’s children, Christina, Bobby, and Amit, working towards making your next visit one to remember.
The winery is on the southeastern slope of a 60-million-year-old dormant volcano, Boucherie Mountain, which inspired the name Volcanic Hills. Guests will find a large assortment of unique gift items and spacious bar in the wine shop, alongside a yummy patio restaurant.
