Sandhill is the top tier offerings of the Calona Wines and Andrew Peller. Each bottle of Sandhill wine is make from grapes that come from one of six unique BC Vinyeards. Each vineyard possesses a unique combination of soil composition, slope, xun exposure and drainage.

Sandhill also offers some unique varietals that you will not see in many other wineries here in the vallry like Sangiovese.
The St Hubertus and Oak Bay Vineyards where originally planted in 1928 by J.W. Hughes during a time when good agricultural land was plentiful. Today, only a few of the original vines exist but the same choice growing conditions continue to produce the high quality grapes for which our vineyards are known. Using organic techniques, the Gebert Family have carefully nurtured the vineyard into top condition. The founding of the Winery in 1992 has allowed the Family to translate their love of vines into the pleasure of their award -winning natural dry wines. The original Winery was destroyed in the Okanagan Mountain Park fire Aug 03.
Summerhill was purchased by the Cipes family in 1986, they have been producing organic wines every since. the Cipes family is one of the Okanagans very first organic wineries.Over the years they have also really made a name for themselves in the production of Sparkling Wines - following the traditional method of champagnoise - their Sparkling win top international awards yearly. The Summerhill Pyramid is second only to the Great Pyramid of Egypt for alignment and precision. it is within this structure that all of thier wines are aged.
Tantalus Vineyards is situated on the eastern slopes of the Okanagan Valley overlooking the shores of Lake Okanagan and the city of Kelowna. Tantalus is dedicated to growing and vinifying limited quantities of exceptional Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
