Kalala Organic Estate Winery is located on the Upper Bench of beautiful West Kelowna. Kalala means “Miracle Place” and is their symbol for their commitment to harmony with nature, organic viticulture practices, and their wines.
We visit Kalala frequently as they are on our route for our Westside Bench Tour with a stop for Lunch and our Westside Bench Tasting Experience Tour. We also try to incorporate a visit to Kalala on our private custom tours.
Overlooking the Okanagan Lake, the winery has a breathtaking view and an old-world charm. The winery is family owned and operated and guests are always greeted warmly. The staff have a wealth of knowledge and love to share information about their vineyard and wines.
The vineyards were deemed certified organic in September 2010. The philosophy is to allow the varietal characteristics and terroir to be truly expressed and only enhanced by minimal handling during winemaking.
Kalala took home a Gold Medal for their 2011 Aspire and a Silver for their 2011 Dostana at the 2015 Pacific Rim Wine Competition. Most recently they won gold for their 2013 Chardonnay Ice Wine at the Chardonnay du Monde competition held in France March, 2016. With complex flavours combined with the organic practice of their wines, Kalala provides a truly unique experience.
