Mission Hill is the only winery in Canada that has won Winery of the Year five times. The first Chardonnay made by John Simes, who had just joined the winery, in the 1992 vintage won the trophy for “Best Chardonnay” at the 1994 International Wine and Spirit Competition, becoming the first Okanagan winery to receive overseas recognition.
Olson Kundig Architects were commissioned in 1996 to rebuild the winery and associated buildings. This was the first winery project undertaken by the design firm. The work was completed in 2002 at an estimated cost of thirty-five million Canadian dollars. The centerpiece and focal point of the design was a twelve-story and 85-foot high bell tower, with four bells cast by Fonderie Paccard in Annecy, France who also crafted the bells for St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and Sacré-Cœur in Paris. For a touch of old-world elegance please join us in exploring this fabulous estate.
