With its 20 estates, Mission Hill Family Estate in West Okanagan is the major private vineyard owner in the valley. The wines include the Bordeaux-inspired blend Oculus and the Select Lot Collection

Architectural Record named Mission Hill as one of the world's four outstanding new wineries in the world -- and the only one in North America.
