Harper’s Trail Estate Winery
Harper’s Trail Winery is Kamloops’ first winery. Named for the cattle drive trail of pioneer rancher Thaddeus Harper, Harper’s Trail is tucked into the city outskirts on the picturesque banks of the South Thompson River. Framed by the dramatic landscape of chiselled hoodoos, rolling hills of sage and the pristine South Thompson River a visit to the winery is as much a visual experience as it is a tasting sensation.
Taste award-winning wines and explore the unique beauty of the Kamloops’ landscape as you enjoy the view from the patio.
About the Wine
One hundred percent estate grown, the wines from Harper’s Trail reflect the Thompson Valley terroir showcasing bright freshness and intensity alongside a mineral-driven backbone stemming from the limestone vein running through the property. A focus on organic farming practices and local biodiversity lead the winemaking and viticulture philosophy at Harper’s Trail.
Outdoor Tasting Lounge
The outdoor tasting lounge offers a great alternative to those who prefer to sit and sip. Pull up a seat at a table under the open air tent where you can taste through a specially curated flight of wines while you drink in the expansive vineyard and hoodoo views.
The Tasting Room
Learn about the vineyards and the history of Harper’s Trail as you taste through a selection of four wines from a changing menu of reds and whites. Sip at the ranch-inspired wooden tasting bar from either inside the wine shop or step outside to an alternate stand up tasting bar.
Walk-in tastings are $5.00 plus tax per person with fees waived with bottle purchase. A curated seated tasting flight is $10.00 per person plus tax.
