About District Wine Village

The first true wine village in Canada. Located in the heart of the South Okanagan, the Village.  Surrounded by vineyards and home to 16 artisan producers.

A four seasons opportunity for visitors to meet and enjoy local events and experiences.

The History

Many business ideas are born over glasses of wine and that is exactly what happened with Okanagan Falls born and raised, long-time friends and neighbors, Max Brock and Matt Kenyon. Max had previously travelled throughout the US and had seen the model of winery clusters in other wine regions and wanted to bring the model to BC, the first of its kind in Canada. Together, they created a concept to launch this one-of-a-kind village in wine country. Expanding on this concept was to include Matt’s love of beer and food resulting in the inclusion of a craft brewery and a restaurant on site.  Sadly, Max passed away before breaking ground. The District Wine Village project continued on, and is now being built in honour of Max and his family.

Michael Daley, an industry veteran was brought on as Director of Operations to bring the project to fruition, and the vision to life in further planning and the building out of the village. The rest as they say is history.

District Wine Village is being built with a local community mindset, to celebrate artisan production and craftmanship.
