Perched high overlooking the valley, Mission Hill Family Estate Winery is the most beautiful winery in Canada. From its bell tower, the noon chimes echo over Lake Okanagan. Every valley visitor should make a determined effort to have at least one glass of wine at Mission Hill, take a tour of the absolutely opulent cellars and have lunch or tapas at The Terrace, officially named as one of the top five winery restaurants on earth.
A Canadian milestone occurred in 1994 when Mission Hill Grand Reserve Chardonnay 1992 won the Avery Trophy for Best Chardonnay Worldwide at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London. This first major award ushered in the new era of B .C. wine-making.
The Terrace Restaurant is a large part of Chef Matthew Batey’s domain. His dedication to regional ingredients has always been the foundation of the entire culinary programme at the Winery. Whether it’s the perfect Shipspoint oysters with Vidal ‘pearls’ dotted with lemon thyme flowers or a simple dish of poached egg with fresh asparagus spears and fingerling potato in a pool of preserved lemon butter, his team of chefs respond to the freedom he gives them with spectacular dishes. Dining on The Terrace, where every table has a view and where every dish has the blessing of Chef Batey’s team, is an experience to cherish for a lifetime.
