Elephant Island Orchard Wines

Whenever we’re in Naramata, Elephant Island Orchard is a must stop. See my first post from a trip a few years ago.



We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (with 4:15pm reservations) and it was busy. Service is the absolute best here; our server was friendly, welcoming and offered us a couple additional samples to try.

Tasting fee is $10.00/flight and includes four pours.


Fee is waived with the purchase of two bottles.


We went with the orchard rockstar flight option.

2020 Pear wine
DSC04594This year’s pear was very wine-like, leaning towards the dry side.

2020 Black currant
DSC04598Herbaceous and delightfully tart. We bought two bottles ($21.10).

2020 Crab apple wine
DSC04597One of their dessert wines. Not as sweet as we expected and a splash of tartness at the end. Apparently, mixing this with gin is a winner.

2019 Framboise
DSC04599Always a winner in our books. Easily one of our favourites.

2020 Apricot dessert wine
DSC04596Surprisingly we’ve never had this before but it was delicious. Notes of floral and tasted like a tangy, sweet apricot. We bought a bottle ($24.10) for home.

2020 Blackberry wine
DSC04605One of the extra pours they gave us to try. Solid, very jammy.

Elephant Island is the best place to stock up on fruit wines.
