Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
Types of Wines
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is a sustainable focused winery located on BC’s First Sub Geographic Indicator, the Golden Mile Bench. Tinhorn features a 50/50 split of red and white wines coming from both sides of the valley (Golden Mile Bench & Black Sage Bench) with a focus on terroir driven Cabernet Franc and fresh, mineral driven whites. Tinhorn Creek offers a variety of interactive experiences, with a stunning panoramic view of the South Okanagan at the heart of it all.
Tinhorn Creek winery has a rich and storied history, and is a huge influence for other, aspiring producers in the Okanagan Valley. The winery sits on the Golden Mile bench with a number of estate acres + more on the Black Sage Bench across the valley. Well established vines get drenched with Okanagan sunshine, producing ripe and expressive wines.
Sandra and Ken Oldfield purchased and planted 80 acres in the South Okanagan back in 1993, and Tinhorn Creek opened its doors in ’96 with 1200 cases of wine to sell. Over the next 20 years, they grew production to over 35,000 cases and a diverse array of award winning wines. Tinhorn Creek was a perfect blueprint for how to run and scale a winery business.
In 2017, Sandra and Ken sold the winery, and a new chapter began. The new team had a solid foundation that allows them to build on the Oldfield’s legacy. We love the creativity and innovation that the current team brings to this legendary Canadian winery.
This winery makes an impressive range of wines, from easygoing and juicy daily drivers to complex and stylish wines, matured in the barrel hall. A visit to the tasting room is always a good time. Whether you’re sipping wine on the deck overlooking the valley, or dining at Miradoro, the top notch restaurant onsite, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re lucky, you can even catch an open air concert in their amphitheatre.
The hard work that Sandra and Ken put in over the years has literally shaped the Canadian Wine Industry, and we are very grateful for their amazing efforts.
