BC Wine Museum & VQA Wine Shop


Taste, Learn, and Shop

The Okanagan wine industry grew from “OK wine” to world class in 60 years. Get the dirt on old and new vines at the BC Wine Museum. The wine museum will be expanding in 2016.

While visiting the museum, shop at the wine shop with history! Taste and learn about BC VQA wines, and buy a bottle to support the historical preservation and presentation functions of Kelowna Museums Society.

Kelowna Museums Society has operated a VQA wine shop for 19 years, providing an innovative approach to blending heritage with tasting and shopping. Sadly, this chapter in the museum’s history is coming to an end. In January, we will close the wine shop and wine museum.  When the doors reopen in February, the BC Wine Museum will be bigger and better. In fact, plans are underway to redevelop the wine and fruit displays at the Laurel Packinghouse over the next 2 years.

Visit the Wine Museum in December and stock up on your BC VQA wines. The excellent staff will help you learn about and love BC wines. At the same time, take advantage of deals on non-wine gifts.
