As the first Indigenous-owned winery in North America, we feel inspired to express our Culture in everything we do. Our winery is a bold and respectful celebration of our storied past and dynamic present and a strong reflection of our commitment to authenticity. Join us to discover, not only the international award-winning wines we produce, but also the indomitable spirit and remarkable history that inspires them.
The centuries-old home of the Osoyoos Indian Reserve is 32,000 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. Surrounded by time-weathered mountains and dotted by magnificent mirrored lakes, it reaches from Vernon to Tonasket and from Rock Creek to Princeton, with settlements including Osoyoos, Keremeos, Penticton and Kelowna owing their names to the Indigenous language.
Here in the hottest and driest part of Canada, over 500 Osoyoos Band members secure and share a legacy of hard work and a passionate respect for nature. The word Nk’Mip translates to “Bottomland” in English, being located at the southern end of the Osoyoos reservation. Today, the Nk’Mip Cellars are one of many business, health, social, educational and municipal initiatives that have earned the Band financial independence and high employment.”
