The winery site is one of the most attractive in the South Okanagan with outstanding views in a setting of natural beauty. Situated on a bench overlooking the shores of Osoyoos Lake, the site is adjacent to a tract of natural desert land while the newly planted vineyards and orchards provide a stunning contrast. The Band shares its history and traditions with those who visit the winery. Tour experiences at the winery are enhanced through the architecture, designed and constructed to display native art and artifacts, and enhance the beauty and unique nature of the wild sage desert surroundings. From the early years of ranching, trading and small farms, the people of the Osoyoos Indian Band have continued to change with the times. The Band has a long history of growing grapes and owns 230 acres at the Inkameep Vineyard that were first planted in 1968. Under the expertise of trained viticulturalist Sam Baptise, new varieties are being planted each year to meet current market demands. Currently, Inkameep Read more »

    A fantastic chardonnay. Creamy and sweet with some acidity. I had it with smoked salmon and red skin potatoes; It was wonderful. Read More

  • Nk'Mip Cellars Chardonnay Okanagan Valley Vqa Qwam Qwmt 2006


    A refreshingly well balanced chardonnay from 2009. Oak and cream on the nose along with vanilla, sweet peaches and pear. On the palate it brings more fruit and some acidity. Great length. (Side note: made my sweetie think of sour cream or dill potato chips). Read More

I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle.  Has anyone else tried it? Read More

  • Nk'Mip Cellars Pinot Noir Okanagan Valley Vqa Qwam Qwmt 2007


    The Nk'Mip Cellars Qwam Qwmt has a muted nose of half-ripe red fruit, celery salt and mild barnyard. The attack is quite tart, with sour strawberry dominating the flavor upon entry. There is some structure and elegance but insufficiently satisfying at this price point. Better balance would make it more competitive with a Cote Chalonnaise offer... Read More
