River Stone Estate Winery is a small, family owned and operated winery located in the South Okanagan. On a small knoll in the middle of the valley, just south of the well recognized McIntyre Bluff and just north of Oliver, BC, the Wine Capital of Canada. The winery building and home is surrounded by a hand-tended vineyard. The owners chose this site for its superb grape-growing qualities and planted the vineyard with a Bordeaux-style blend in mind. As the name suggests, the unique site has deep, homogeneous rock and gravel soils laid down following the last glacial recession. This rock retains the heat of long, sunlit summer days into fall's cool nights and allow for the growing of five red Bordeaux varietals very well. These are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer thrive in the cooler edges of the property. The long imagined and carefully planned blend now exists and it's called Corner Stone.

  • Had a great time during our tasting. Bob was a lot of fun and made the experience memorable. We enjoy a glass of wine on the patio. What a fantastic spot to have a drink.
  • A great personal feel. Small enough to give you a personal touch, big enough to have what you want.
