Granite Creek Estate Wines is a family owned vineyard and winery located in one of the Canada’s most northern growing areas, Tappen, British Columbia. It is slightly north of the famed German wine region of the Rheingau. Our mission is to produce the highest quality wines from our northern varieties. Longer season varieties have been chosen from the best locations throughout the Okanagan from our contract vineyards to complement our portfolio. All of our wines are made at our winery here in Tappen. Heather and Gary Kennedy are long time residents of the estate.
