Some great unique whites! But didn’t enjoy the wait after our tour guide making an appointment, or the long-winded spiel with our wines longingly waiting in front of us, or getting charged for the tasting after spending over $200. None of the other 5 wineries...More

We had a great day of wine tasting in the Okanagan today. Culmina was by far the weakest link. We had booked a private tasting and they were very late and then allowed 2 walkins to join our group. The tasting was a long history...More

I visited more than 20 wineries in the Okanagan region this week and my verdict is go to this one just before you go checkmate winery (right next to it). The view is fantastic, great whites, the rosé delicious and they also have interesting reds....More

We went here on a wine tour of 9 by the choice of our driver. It was a formal, sit-down tasting where they told us the story of the vineyard. It was beautiful inside and out. While interesting, it took too long and the place...More

We specifically drove to South Okanagan to visit this winery. We were encouraged not to be intimidated by locked gate...simply buzz. We did... twice...to no avail. Not a very encouraging way to build loyalty. We will not go out of our way to visit again.More

Looking for a dry rose, Culmina was recommended at one of the other wineries. While I understand that everyone can’t be accommodated, there was only one other car in the parking lot. No tasting for us as we did not have an appointment. Very disappointed....More

Culmina is very elegant. The wines are very carefully sorted and there is not a unfavourable wine here. Red or White. When you pull up there is a metal gate and you need to be careful since they only can taste about 10 people at...More
