Meyer Family Vineyards has been crafting premium wines in the Okanagan Valley since 2006, specializing in single vineyard expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
With almost 20 acres of estate-grown grapes including our Old Main Road Vineyard on the Naramata Bench and our McLean Creek Road vineyard in Okanagan Falls, the unique micro-climates of these sites have proven to be outstanding locations for grape cultivation. In addition, we work with passionate, quality-minded growers in the East Kelowna area and Naramata Bench to round out our portfolio of terroir-driven wines.
We invite you to visit our winery and tasting room in Okanagan Falls to learn more about the Meyer philosophy. We hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoy making them!
The Meyer Family
JAK (John Arthur Kenneth) and his wife Janice Stevens, wanted a place to put down roots and raise their two young daughters. They had lived in Alberta, Vancouver, the Turks and Caicos but after almost a year in Vernon they found themselves attracted to the lifestyle, the beauty, and the opportunities of the Okanagan. After years of sampling the best wines in the world, both appreciating and collecting wine, a vineyard seemed like a good fit. Three years of searching for the perfect site, led them finally to a small acreage in Naramata. With the help of a team of leading experts in Canada, they began to craft their single vineyard wines of excellence; Micro Cuvée Chardonnay and Tribute Chardonnay.
Then in 2008 they added the Okanagan Falls property which included a modest 2400 sq ft winery and another 16 acres of vines. Everything was in place for producing premium single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as well as a second tier label which includes Gewurztraminer, Rose and mid tier Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The new tasting room was completed in October of 2010 and plans are in place for a special events area which will be used for hosting concerts, catered dinners or just as perfect place for guests to relax, kick back and enjoy the surroundings.
“the best dry white wines I have ever tasted from Canada”.

“A beauty that takes Okanagan Chardonnay to a new level of elegance and complexity”
4 and a half stars, Vines Magazine
“On the palate, the fruit is lush – citrus, ripe apple, a touch of butterscotch – without any of the heaviness one sometimes finds on oaked Chardonnay. This wine is bright and fresh and also shows a laser-like purity. 92/100”
John Schreiner on Meyer 2010 Old Main Vineyard Chardonnay – Tribute Series
