O'Rourke's Peak Cellars is Lake Countryâs newest winery and culinary destination to experience. The winery is located on a picturesque property with panoramic views of surrounding orchards, vineyards, rolling mountains and Okanagan Lake. Talented winemake
Had an excellent time at O Rourke's Winery last week. My sister recommended we come by for the happy hour and enjoy the Lobster Pizza and Wine special. With every pizza you purchase during happy hour you get a bottle of wine. Our table of four ladies sipped slowly on Fielding Block 26 and RosÃ© while enjoying 3 Neapolitan style pizzas on the patio that had fine mists of water to cool us from the warm Okanagan sun. We were later serenaded by a musician who sang soft favourites with the vineyard as his background stage and the sun sinking into the lake in the near distance. Our server Kenny, was incredibly personable and patient with our wine giddy table and let us linger and laugh our happy hour and beyond away . The menu has great variety and the food is beautifully presented with some really nice culinary creations such as the local coconut yogurt dressing on the Beet Salad and a delicious Brownie with locally made Skor style chocolate crumbles and gelato. I saw a gorgeous Tomato Toast with a Burrata style cheese pass by and I will have to try that next time. All in all from the tasting room to the Garden Bistro table, the friendly service and the stunning natural ambience this was a wonderful experience that I could highly recommend to try.Thanks Marina for the wonderful review. Glad you enjoyed happy hour and our music night. We look forward to seeing you again.

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON! Thanks for your support, see you next season!
It was spontaneous. We saw it on Google Maps so decided to check another winery after the sensation that was Gray Monk. We locked in another location and turned righâwhoa. That is not a winery. Thatâs a mistake; itâs actually a left and up the road. Ten months later, we visited the same winery and found the same strange bug on our navigator. But donât worry, itâs not you. Blind Tiger does exist, although they may not see you. GET IT! The name refers to the false fronts used in prohibition days. Original. And there is also a dog. Heâs not blind, but he doesnât really care for anyone that enters. Blind Tiger is another small winery, though (Iâm not sure itâs estate) where the owners live around the corner, and more often than not, youâre talking to the winemakers directly at some point during your visit. The tasting room is minuscule, but Iâve never felt crowded in there. On both visits, their wood fire pizza truck on site was closed, depressing. The view from the hill was spectacularâ¦it must be a requirement. One is not allowed to open a winery without an amazing view. Maybe thereâs a review, like a Rotten Tomato score for outlooks. In this case, Blind Tigerâs is certified fresh. As for the wineâs, they cover a broad spectrum from Chards and Gews (Iâm totally using that from now on) to Pinots and their signature Speakeasy Red. Being the weirdo like I am, I bought their âHush Upâ Blush, a fantastic rose. It was one of the 120 bottles we acquired from 60 wineries visited over a one week period, taking us from Osoyoos to Kelowna. Blind Tiger must have made an impression given it was on a short list of wineries to revisit on the second trip. Blind Tiger may not boast the viticulture monuments of nearby Grey Owl or Arrowleaf. They are modest, almost inconspicuous, and worth our two visits, as well as yours.Oh, and it may not be an important factor, but obviously itâs worth mentioning that on said second visit, there was an incubator filled with adorable baby chickens. I do mean adorable. And did I mention they were baby chickens?
You used to be able to get a variety of sandwiches and salads to enjoy on the patio. They only had sweets when we were last there. And it is so sad that you cannot have a bottle of wine on the deck with your food - only served by the carafe. We were disappointed that the wine we choose was 'out' and none available for the carafe, yet there were scores of that wine on the shelves....
