Winery
The name BLOCK ONE
represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be
ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again.
That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE also
represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the
estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. Guests
will be amazed by the seating area for the outdoor portion of the
restaurant. You are covered by an engineering wonder above in a oneof-
a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the worlds
architectural community. The year-round restaurant moves to an
equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the
winter months.

After a wonderful wine tour with Travis, we celebrated my friend’s 50th birthday with lunch. Shared the Glamour Farming Salad with shrimp and Albacore Tuna Tataki, followed by the Mac and Cheese. All were exemplary, and the scenery was lovely! The addition of the misters was a nice touch on a hot day. Dessert was a delicious lemon tart with lemon sorbet. Would highly recommend!

Okanagan hidden gem nestled in the hills above the lake! Our server made us feel welcome, relaxed & waited patiently for us to pick out our wine. It was a tough choice! We finally picked the winner, an Estate Reisling, based on on our server's recommendation. Order the salmon, its light, fresh & perfectly prepared. Hoping to visit again to try the Lemongrass Cheesecake, new feature dessert on the menu. And pick up a bottle of their award winning Rose before we head back home to AB. #luvbchospitality❤

We followed up a premium wine tour and tasting with an early dinner at the restaurant. Fantastic! We had the Heirloom Tomato Salad (the whipped Carmelis’ chèvre was SO GOOD!), the Local Charcuterie Board (all good, but maybe a little sparse for the price, and we're all convinced that there were no figs on that tray), and then The Forager’s Pizza (that alone would have me ready to come back - it was amazing).

Food was great! Our server was pleasant and fairly attentive. Music was a tad loud, with that annoying Cactus Club kind of vibe. But overall a pretty cool place.

This is the best restaurant that I've visited so far in Kelowna.
The servers treat their customers in a professional way.
Meals are delicious.
A place I definitely will come back and recommend to my friends.

Only one complaint. We had a very loud group six across from our table. A lot of fbombs dropped by that table. Not acceptable.
The icing on the cake was when the gal sitting closest to our table pulled a can of dry shampoo out and started spraying her hair which carried over to our table. Not a great smell when you are enjoying a lovely meal.
Thank heavens one of the guests at the table told her to stop.
They did off er to pay for our meal we said no not necessary. They did take it upon themselves to do so. Four of the guests paid and left behind the two drunken women.
I think maybe the staff could have intervened, we weren’t real interested in talking to the gentlemen who was from Edmonton. Great food, ambiance, I know it’s hard for servers.

The food is spectacular!! Because it was very busy the service was a bit slow. The ambiance & chef made this experience amazing. The only issue we had was with the cleanliness of the washrooms. Especially in covid.

We loved the atmosphere with the beautiful architecture and mist and view of the vineyard and lake. The attention to Covid details was exemplary. The food was good overall, but my chicken sandwich, which sounded like it would be full of flavour, wasn't. The Pannacotta dessert, however, was amazing with a fantastic blend of flavours. I would absolutely bring people here again.

One of the best meals we've had in the Okanagan. We came for Sunday brunch and were blown away by the exceptional service and food. The winery is absolutely stunning. Service took necessary precautions without creating a sterile environment.

Although it was a mice experience I thought my main course of Lamb was not as good as it could have been. Was medium well instead of medium rare. Wine was excellent and so was the starter and dessert. We will be back to give it another try.

First visit. Loved the location, building, decor etc.
Chose the Pinot Gris without having a tasting and hoped for the best, was delicious, best Pinot Gris I've tasted in a long time and I'm a huge fan of Poplar Grove as my go to Okanagan choice.
Truffle fries are amazing. Will go back for those plus Pinot Gris!
The reason for my average starred review is the service, lovely girl, pleasant and friendly but very inattentive, had to go to her to take our food order plus our bill. Not sure if dessert is an option at this restaurant, wasn't offered any choices.
Quite a few menu choices not available, made our choices then was told the burger wasn't available either. Went with two crispy chicken sandwiches. Chicken was very tasty, very small piece of chicken though. Coleslaw delicious.
It'd be nice if the evening menu choices were available in the day time as lunch always a preference for me.
