Mission Hill is the winery of the region that is nearly daunting in its majesty. Perched atop the hill in West Kelowna, it sits presiding over the gemlike crystal blue brilliance of the Okanagan Lake below it.
The chefs who cook for the winery aren’t half bad either. Here are some upcoming events, worth scheduling a weekend getaway around. Bring your love of food…and, of course, your love of good wine.

A region that has such a long growing season and is home to one of the most revered restaurants in the world is well worth exploring. Many similarities exist between Napa Valley and the Okanagan, thus earning the valley the nickname, Napa of the North.
Terrace Chef Riley Bennett will be seeking out the staples and gems of the region while sharing with you the vast Spanish influence as well as a recipe from one of Napa’s most famous restaurants in Yountville, California. Enjoy Shrimp Tostados, Hearts of Palm Salad, Seared Halibut, Rabbit “Lollipop” and Citrus Bavarian.

Living in the Okanagan Valley, one could not be more fortunate and able to cook from within a ‘100 mile’ area. Chef Bennett is a native of this rich agricultural area and will show you just how readily available local products are and how much better they really do taste coming from our own back yard.
