Gray Monk Estate Winery

“We invite you to visit the Home of Pinot Gris”. The winery’s name, Gray Monk, is the English translation of the Austrian name for Pinot Gris, a varietal sourced from the Alsace, first planted in Canada by the Heiss family in the Gray Monk home vineyard in 1976. Perched above Okanagan Lake with stunning panoramic views of mountains, vineyards and the lake, Gray Monk Estate Winery offers guests a true taste, or sip, of the Okanagan lifestyle. With a bustling wine boutique, a full service banquet facility and a world-class restaurant, the winery is equipped to host guests for all occasions. The Heiss family is proud to remain as British Columbia’s oldest family owned and operated winery. From their cherished vineyard near Latitude 50 – a trail blazing family winery has led the way, helping to shape the “BC Wine World” enjoyed today.
