Taste, Learn, and Buy at the BC Wine Museum & VQA Wine Shop.

The BC Wine Museum & VQA Wine Shop was opened 15 years ago with the intention of bring the history of the Okanagan Wine Region to the public, as well as teaching the public about the vast wine industry in BC. Our shop sells BC Vintners Quality Alliance wines, which is a guarantee that you’re purchasing 100% BC wine. We sell at winery prices and carry over 600 listings of wine from over 90 wineries. When you purchase wine from the BC VQA Wine Shop, not only are you supporting the Kelowna Museums Society, but you are also supporting local VQA Wineries. All proceeds from sales support the preservation and presentation of Kelowna’s heritage.


Gift with Purchase: Celebrate BC’s diverse wine regions, BUY LOCAL!

BC VQA (Vintners Quality Alliance) is the appellation of origin and quality standard for the Wines of British Columbia. Established in 1990, BC VQA certified wines must meet specific standards with respect to origin, vintage and varietals. These wines are also tasted by a qualified panel for quality characteristics prior to being able to use the BC VQA designation. To put it simply, when you see BC VQA on a bottle, it is your guarantee that you’re sipping a wine that is 100% from British Columbia.

We are encouraging visitors to explore the diversity of BC wines with a special gift with purchase for the month of August!
