Bella is a sparkling wine house capturing the beauty of British Columbia fruit in every bubble. Focusing on vineyard expressions throughout the Okanagan, Bella sparkling wine is an elegant, genuine expression of the vineyards we source from. Our wines are made in the traditional method with minimal winemaking. We enjoy discovering the personalities that each vineyard has to offer. Sparkling wine, by nature, invokes emotions associated with special occasions. At Bella every day brings little wins, moments of joy, and a life worth rewarding. Why wait?
Located in the heart of the beautiful Naramata Bench, our philosophy is to capture the unique expression of the grapes, grown in the natural climate and soils of the Okanagan Valley. We strive for balanced wines with elegant notes that pair beautifully with food, yet have the power to age gracefully. We invite you to experience our multi level patio, with a 180 view of the Okanagan lake, “the best patio in the world”, as described by Anthony Gismondi.
Deep Roots Winery is located on the high bluffs above the picturesque village of Naramata. It is owned and operated by the Hardman family. Will Hardman, the fourth generation to live on this property, is the winemaker. His father, Bryan, grows and maintains the 21 acres of vineyards. The family has continuously farmed at this location for over 95 years – thus the Deep Roots name. We are very proud of our heritage and the wines we produce. We invite all to visit the winery, enjoy a tasting, bring a picnic and experience the unsurpassed views from our patio and deck. In just its second year Deep Roots was named by the Wine Align National Wine Awards of Canada as top 5 small Canadian winery, 9th best winery in B.C. and 12th best winery in the country. Winning Platinum for Gamay, Gold for Syrah, three Silvers and a bronze in just that one competition. The Deep Roots Gamay was the highest scoring wine out of over 1400 entries.
Genius or madness? Given the trajectory of their post university careers, Miranda + Del Halladay would argue their pursuit of original thinking requires a strong dose of both. Launching Elephant Island Orchard Wines cracked the seal on unconventional winemaking style in BC. Fans and critics alike have their opinion on which camp Elephant Island should be categorized. Eleven vintages later enter stage left: Elephant Island Too - a new brand launched by Del + Miranda. Crafted exclusively from grapes they planted on their home property in 2006 and an old Naramata Bench vineyard acquired in 2013, Elephant Island Too morphed from a desire after 10 years in the BC wine industry to keep inspired and challenged . . . and maybe just a bit from the competitive nature of the two to silence the audience that says they don’t make ‘real’ wine.
Grow the best quality fruit possible, pick at optimum physiological ripeness, ferment cool, and intervene with nature only when necessary; simple, elegant. Simple, elegant, yes, but easy? Definitely not. It is our belief that great wines start in the vineyard, and to this end, we use only the best quality fruit available from our twenty acres of grapes densely planted on hillside terraces surrounding the winery.
