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.

Everything was great for our anniversary celebration. We were married one year ago at 50th Parallel. A favourite of ours for sure! The only suggestion I would like to share is that the hostess didn’t read the rez details about it being our anniversary and then said we had a 2 hour time limit for our table once we were seated. It was a Monday night and we didn’t expect that statement. Our server was great (sorry can’t remember her name but she was very attentive and we were very happy with her service).

Even with the Covid 19 procedures in place, 50th Parallel continues to excel at what they do. The dinner at Block One was amazing. The safety protocol in place made us feel safe but still welcome to enjoy our experience as if nothing was different from before. The food was terrific and the service second to none. Block One and 50th Parallel never fail at impressing and doing it right. Excellent experience.

We had delicious burgers and steak tartare. It was great to eat outside on a beautiful sunny day with an excellent view of the Vineyard and Lake. We regularly take company for a delicious meal with great wine because it’s always reliable.

What a beautiful drive out to the winery. To come across such a stunning building at the end of the road was a lovely surprize. The restaurant was open and beautiful with such an amazing view. They opened up the whole front for us and we sat and enjoyed a delicious lunch. I had the margherita pizza from their wood fired pizza oven and my husband had the macaroni and cheese. Topped off with a glass of their gewurtraminer. A perfect afternoon! We will certainly tell friends and come back.

Casual yet cool. Patio ambience with a modern take on vineyard. Food was spectacular! Service was fun and engaging. The Riesling was a wonderful surprise. Should have had the bottle. Can’t wait to go back.

After golf at nearby Predators Ridge my wife and I had a delicious lunch at Block One. The pizza Margarita was out of this world with heirloom tomatoes fresh herbs, and a simple Mac and cheese was the best either one of us had ever tasted. Would highly recommend Block One if you are in the area, the trip is worth it.

Ambience is excellent. We ordered chicken wings and was granted our request of 6/6 pieces the 2 flavours. That was a bonus. The wings are not really fresh. But the Wagyu hamburger tastes good. Cheesecake was not extraordinary.
Wine pairings as recommended is very good.

Block One is a must visit- at least once- on any trip to the Kelowna area.
We first discovered it last year at lunch while staying in the Mission district of Kelowna, and it was totally worth the drive.
So much so, that on our last trip we ate there multiple times.
Farm to table ingredients, dishes created by a chef with an accomplished palette, excellent wine pairings for each dish- and if you are in the mood for a different wine, 50th Parallel has a wonderful selection. The restaurant team is exactly that- a team that welcomes you as if you are family, and they constantly work together to make sure your meal is perfect.
Many wineries in the area are the destination, with a restaurant that has been added on after. In this case, Block One is a destination on it's own. Even if you do not drink wine, you will love Block One.

Nice experience. Atmosphere was a little loud and energetic for our liking but was still a nice evening. Server was friendly but would have enjoyed a little more attention. Food was good, but took a little longer than anticipated to receive it and the steaks we ordered were not hot but the rest of the meal was. Overall, a nice meal.
