Wine Tasting Fees

At Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, we charge $3 per person which our company donates directly to the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of British Columbia (BOCS of BC). Tasting fees are paid by visitors before wine tasting commences and because all funds are donated for conservation purposes, we do not waive fees for individuals or groups. 

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 fee program now constitutes most of the Society’s annual funding. Rest assured that each penny of these fees goes directly to the Society. Help us help this endangered species.

Food Services

The Sonora Room Restaurant at Burrowing Owl offers superb cuisine at lunch and dinner and is one of the finest dining experiences in the Okanagan. The view from the patio is spectacular, or a seat looking through the French doors, overlooking the vineyard, is memorable at any time. Taking reservations now for the 2016 season.
