About Quails’ Gate

Made for sharing and pairing since 1989, our passion for making great wines is matched only by our dedication to creating memorable experiences for our guests.

The Stewart family has been part of the community for more than a century. Three generations have helped to build Quails’ Gate into the award-winning winery that exists today. The pursuit of viticultural and winemaking excellence has remained the driving force behind everything we do.

From our selection of premium quality wines to the spectacular, breathtaking views of the Okanagan Valley, there are so many reasons why we are known as one of the ‘must see’ wineries in the region.

At Quails’ Gate Winery, we believe great wines begin in the vineyard. Through decades of research, careful crafting and an unwavering dedication to producing only the best, we’ve cultivated a reputation for delivering world-class wines that provide a true taste of the Okanagan.

Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate is an all-season culinary destination, open year-round. Culinary Director, Roger Sleiman and his team create dynamic menus of wine-led, contemporary cuisine inspired by seasonal local farms and suppliers throughout British Columbia, providing guests with a true taste of the Okanagan.

The Market at Quails’ Gate is a seasonal wine country escape offering our full portfolio of wines to enjoy with locally sourced artisanal cheeses and charcuterie offerings, wood-fired pizza from our outdoor pizza oven and freshly baked breads and classic desserts all perfect for enjoying al fresco in our outdoor picnic area.

Quails’ Gate Winery lakefront accommodations embody the essence of wine-country living. Enjoy a romantic getaway, family vacation or corporate retreat by staying onsite at one of our two elegant lakeside accommodations at the base of our estate.
