Overview

Culmina Family Estate Winery, located on the Golden Mile Bench in the South Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, is the result of a lifetime of experience in the wine industry for Don, Elaine and Sara Triggs. Through their hard work, scientific study, commitment to craft, unwavering pursuit of excellence and a longstanding faith in the potential for Icon quality wines from Canadian soil, Culmina Family Estate Winery was born. Culmina offers the opportunity to explore a very limited release of carefully crafted wines through either Vineyard & Winery Tours, or structured, sit-down Reserve Tastings at our newly constructed state-of-the-art winery and Tasting Room. Because all Tasting Experiences take place at appointed times throughout the day, reservations are recommended, but drop-ins are still very welcome at set times, as per below. Reserve Tastings: 10:15, 11:15, etc ... 4:15 Vineyard & Winery Tours: 10, 12, 2, 4

We've visited Culmina three times. Each time we've been "greeted" by a disembodied voice over a speaker box at the gate, reminiscent of the questions you get at a border crossing. Why are we here today? Why, the same reason we've visited dozens of other...More
