Heavens Gate Estate Winery is exactly as described on its website. We had the pleasure of meeting Tyson Felt, owner and winemaker on our 1st visit. We really enjoyed our wine tasting with Tyson and were pleased to see that our tasting fee was waived when we bought a couple bottles of wine. The wine is excellent and good value for the price. We went back this afternoon to purchase another bottle of wine to enjoy on the patio while listening to live music. The view from the patio is beautiful. We’ll be back again. I highly recommend this winery.

We loved meeting the owner at the tasting bar and the live music on the sunny patio with our own picnic was phenomenal.
The wine was impressive and this is a high recommend for experience, wine and supporting passionate business owners and wine makers.

Lovely winery with a friendly staff (and dogs for my kids to pet). Despite the hours listed on this site, we found it open daily until 5:30 and welcome to us just dropping in. A lovey experience!

Wells was a gem! We had a wonderfully socially distanced tasting with this knowledgeable and friendly man. This winery offered a quiet, enjoyable experience as it’s not as we’ll known as its neighbours. But it’s well worth the stop on a tour round Summerland!

We visited this wonderful winery on our self guided ladies weekend tour. The 2017 Gwertzminer wine is my favourite. We had great service at the tasting. We were able to bring our picnic to the lovely patio and pair with a chilled Heaven’s gate bottle. Highly recommend this winery.

We visited Heaven's Gate Winery at early in July and had the most wonderful time. The winery and patio area are absolutely stunning with views of Okanagan Lake and rolling hills. Definitely bring some snacks and grab a bottle of wine to sit and take in the views. Tyson's wines are all fantastic but I'd like to point out that his 2018 Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon is amazing (crisp, clean and refreshing) while the Gamay Nouveau served chilled is like "Heaven" in a bottle. It's light red has notes of strawberries but finishes clean and soft in your mouth. Unlike anything we've ever had. Thank you Tyson for your exceptional hospitality and amazing wines. We look forward to what the coming years bring us from your winery. Cheers from Vancouver!

As I'd heard the winery had a new winemaker, I made it a point to visit and see how it was.
While the wines are still good, what's most impressive is that the new winemaker is essentially self taught, but the wines don't look (taste it) at all!
As a sommelier, I've been told I'm too "picky", but life is too short to have bad wine. Lots of crushable patio wines to pick from, but my favourite is the rose. A bit boozy, but it's well integrated which is the sign of good wine making. Goes down almost TOO easy.
Prices are fair for what's in the bottle too which is always welcome.
While the rose is dry, there is a tiny bit of residual sugar, but a good level of acididy makes this food friendly as well and balances it out. It smells like candied apple and strawberry rhubarb pie, but it's not a sugar bomb wine.
I'm happy to say that this winery is in good hands and I'm sure the quality of the wines will only continue to improve over time.
I would have liked to have been able to talk with the wine maker, but was served by his girlfriend who was very knowledgeable. She mentioned he was originally a carpenter by trade but decided to follow his dreams and become a wine maker.
I look forward to trying out future vintages but don't stop making that rose!

And yes, the view is still incredible! The future looks bright here :)

In spite of being very busy in the tasting room, we had a great experience. New things have been happening at this winery. Their wine tasted very good, and you could tell they took their participation in the ‘light up the vines’ event seriously. The grounds were decorated very nicely. The pictures do not do it justice. If you have never been to this winery, make sure it’s on your list of things to do next time you are in the area.

We visited this winery with friend we just met from Germany, we really enjoyed the wines and the story behind the design change of the label .
Tyson is very passionate about his wines and it shows in his passion for the Winery
