Brothers Kal and Nirmal Gidda opened Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery & recently celebrated their 10th anniversary. They are a true family business success story! Located in West Kelowna's Lakeview Heights area, this winery is only a five minute drive from downtown Kelowna, British Columbia across the scenic Okanagan Lake floating bridge.
Winemaker Jim Faulkner and his team, have grown Mt. Boucherie over the years to produce a total of 21 reds, whites and Icewines amounting to 25,000 cases! Semillion is a rare grape variety in British Columbia vineyards, yet Jim has created a stunning wine.
Cheers & Enjoy!
