Privato Vineyard & Winery
A hidden treasure nestled in the heart of BC’s Thompson River Valley, Privato Winery stands as a family-owned boutique winery devoted to crafting premium Burgundian-style wines. Drawing inspiration from the Italian word “Privato,” meaning private, this winery’s serene setting perfectly captures its essence.
Indulge in an intimate wine tasting, bask in a leisurely picnic on the grounds, or take a leisurely stroll through the property’s spectacular event gardens.
About the Wine
Crafted in small batches, Privato boasts some of the finest small-lot Pinot Noir and Chardonnay offerings in BC. These wines, vinted and aged with meticulous care, mirror the distinct site and terroir from which the grapes are sourced. Expanding the Privato portfolio, you’ll also find additional aromatic varietals and even a sparkling wine.
Their wine portfolio includes: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, Rose, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and blends.

The Wine Garden Patio
The outdoor wine garden patio presents guests with the opportunity to unwind at individual tables while savouring wine by the glass or bottle, all amidst the enchanting surroundings of this special spot.
