OUR WINERY

Experience the Okanagan’s most historic winery. Our wines are traditionally handcrafted by winemaking recipes originating in the mid 1800’s, without the use of harsh chemicals or additives. We use only the finest estate grown grapes from our organic vineyard located in Peachland, B.C. Visitors are welcome year round. We offer award-winning wines and exclusive vintage wines, which can only be tasted by appointment and purchased at the winery or by private invitation.

OUR PROCESS

Sustainable, organic and traditional grape growing practices have been crucial to our success. Our grape growing and cellar practices are in accordance with organic and sustainable practices first and foremost. When crafting white wine, grapes are required to have a minimum of 20 brix, 22 brix for red wine and 32 brix for icewine. We pride ourselves on preserving the high standards associated with proper wine growing and winemaking practices. As a result, we aim to  produce the highest quality of handcrafted, small lot wines.

Hainle Timeline updated 2020

In 1972, Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery became BC’s 8th estate winery and began building the Hainle legacy on renowned winemaking expertise.

Walter Hainle produced the first 40 litres of Icewine and Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery became the birthplace of North American Icewine.

Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery became Canada’s first certified organic winery and the 1st Canadian Winery using Gravity Flow for winemaking.

Now under revitalized management and new ownership, there is a renewed dedication and passion towards environmental sustainability and quality are cornerstones once again here.

Colleen Ingram whips the vineyard back into shape ushering in a new era of better grapes for better wines. Her husband Scott, along with consultant Anthony Buchanan, will be making an eagerly anticipated vintage.
