Welcome to Ovino Winery in Salmon Arm, BC
When travelling through the scenic Salmon Valley, between Salmon Arm and Vernon, you will find Ovino Winery & Vineyards and winery perched on a bench well above the valley bottom. This glacier carved landscape offers mostly sandy and sandy loam soils, marbled with infrequent layers of clay. The vines are located on a sun drenched knoll to maximize photosynthesis and air flow, supported by a drip irrigation system. Get directions here.
Varieties grown in the small Ovino vineyard are Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier and Gewurztraminer as well as cold hardy, disease resistant hybrid grapes with beautiful fruity flavors and aromas, including Traminette,Petit Milo and L’Acadie for white wine plus Foch and Regent for red wine.
Owner, John’s interest in wine was sparked while studying agriculture in the Netherlands. Strong belief that wine is made in the vineyard and guided under a watchful eye in the cellar, Ovino has been producing unique award winning wines helping to put the Shuswap wine region on the map.
OVINO winery is a true family project, with John and Catherine’s daughter Jessica and her husband Don Gawley helping out with many of the day to day operations, and other family members and friends helping at harvest time. All of Ovino’s wines are made from grapes grown at the winery location.
