For Wine Tasting, the cost per person is a minimum $3 donation which goes directly to the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of British Columbia (BOCS of BC). Donation boxes can be found on our tasting bar in the Wine Shop.
Burrowing Owl Estate Winery is closely affiliated with this charitable organization and we do all we can to support fundraising efforts to enable the society to continue their excellent work. In recent years, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society’s funding from government sources has been greatly reduced to the point where our $3 donation program now constitutes most of the Society’s annual funding. Rest assured that each penny of the donation program goes directly to the Society. Help us help this endangered species.
Our bell tower houses an interesting and informative self-guided tour that can be enjoyed during The Sonora Room Restaurant hours. The entrance to the Self Guided Tour is through the Sonora Room Restaurant.
