About the Winery

Sitting lakeside in one of the most picturesque locations in the Okanagan is Frind Estate Winery. Also known as North America’s first beachfront winery, this recently developed hotspot is at the forefront of the wine industry and has gained a lot of popularity in a short amount of time. Markus Frind, who sold his company Plenty of Fish in 2017, wanted to merge his interests in technology and agriculture and bring his family’s 500-year farming history to life. As a result, Frind Estate Winery has become one of the most technologically advanced wineries in the world, producing a wide selection of unique and exceptional wines. Come and enjoy a glass of vino while taking in the stunning lake view and panoramic scenery of the Okanagan!

Wine + Technology

With six individual vineyards located throughout the Okanagan, Frind is able to use a variety of terroirs to create flavourful, award winning wines. The vineyards range from Osoyoos to Vernon and include BC’s largest vineyard at 310 acres in Kelowna. The impressively large amount of vineyard space Frind has access to allows them to produce delicious varieties like Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Regent, and Riesling.

Unlike many other wineries in the region, Frind puts an emphasis on the use of technology to produce the highest quality of wine possible. The fundamental wine producing practices are enhanced by technology such as automated ferment tanks, an optical sorter, STARS tartrate stabilization, a sigma press, and a gas chromatograph. Don’t know what any of these mean? No problem! During your tasting, the friendly staff will break it down and explain how each machine plays an important role in enhancing the taste, texture, and quality of each wine.


Enjoy tasting the delicious wine in the beautifully designed tasting room – a space that combines rustic decor with an opulent ambiance to create an atmosphere like no other. Customers have two tasting options to choose from; Standard Tasting or Elevated Tasting. The Standard Tasting includes 5 wine tastings for $10, which is waived if you purchase a bottle. The Elevated Tasting is the full Frind experience where guests get a private tasting in the Premium Cottage, paired with a charcuterie board. Reservations are recommended for the Standard tasting, and required for the Elevated Tasting. The tasting room is open from 11am – 6pm daily.
