Balance is a time-honored goal in the making of premium wines and working toward balance is a way of life at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Founder Jim Wyse is committed to balance, well beyond that of the fine, world-class wines being produced. A kind of Hippocratic oath ("to do no harm") underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Cabernet Franc 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This pellucid wine from a well-respected vineyard has cranberry, cedar box and cola on the nose with some nicely balanced flavors on entry. These consist of cranberry and rare beef steak notes coated with residual tannin. This is not the acidic, bright expression of the Loire but rather that of muscular, fertile and youthful British Columbia. ... Read More

  • Not only does this winery offer a variety of world class wines from the Osoyoos region in B.C., but they have a superb, first class hotel, and restaurant at the winery. The site is perched on a hill with an exhilarating view of the valley.

  • Burrowing Owl Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This Cabernet Sauvignon from the very highly regarded Burrowing Owl Estate in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia Canada is well made - if fairly typical of the variety as grown in this locality. After 1 year of additional bottle aging, the nose is opening up to a mixture of scents such as wild blackberry, cassis, warm earth and cedar. The ... Read More

  • Burrowing Owl Vineyards Meritage 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is an excellent fine crafted wine from the Okanagan Valley. Lots of staying power without being jammy. This wine shows poise and competes well with other wines in it's price range. I wouldn't call it a bargain though at $37/bottle. Read More

    Wine review by chickeee


  • Would definitely be interested in hearing what people think are the best wineries, and wines, in the Okanagan. Hopefully with an explanation why. Have a good friend going for an extended stay, based in Kelowna, in a month or so, and it'd be nice to be able to offer some pointers. She and her husband drink a lot of New Zealand sauvignon blanc,... Read More
