At our Tasting Bar... Sat. Dec 22 - Deep Roots Winery

Deep Roots Winery is located on the high bluffs above the picturesque village of Naramata. It is owned and operated by the Hardman family. Will Hardman, the fourth generation to live on this property, is the winemaker. His father, Bryan, grows and maintains the 21 acres of vineyards. The family has continuously farmed at this location for over 95 years – thus the Deep Roots name. We are very proud of our heritage and the wines we produce. We invite all to visit the winery, enjoy a tasting, bring a picnic and experience the unsurpassed views from our patio and deck.

In just its second year Deep Roots was named by the Wine Align National Wine Awards of Canada as a top 5 small Canadian winery, 9th best winery in B.C. and 12th best winery in the country. As Anthony Gismondi, Vancouver wine critic said, “From nothing to Ninth.” Winning Platinum for Gamay, Gold for Syrah, three Silvers and a bronze in just that one competition. The Deep Roots Gamay was the highest scoring wine out of over 1400 entries. Our Parentage, a Muscat blend, was awarded Gold and named Best Value Wine at the prestigious North-west Wine Summit featuring wines from Oregon, Washington and B.C.
