Sense of Place


In 1956 Richard Stewart purchased the Quails’ Gate Estate knowing that it was potentially one of the best sites in the Okanagan Valley for premium grape production. Our first vines were planted in 1961 and as the years passed the uniqueness and special qualities of this rare property began to manifest into some of the best wines produced in this valley.

Over the years additional properties have been added to reflect the diversity of the Okanagan Valley. The vineyards of Quails’ Gate produce wines that exhibit complexity of our valley’s terrior. Each site provides a critical component in the hand crafting of the wines we produce.
