UPDATE -
How we are addressing COVID-19

At Nk'Mip Cellars, the health and safety of our guests and employees is foremost in our minds. As such, in the wake of the latest COVID-19 updates, we wanted to let you know how we are keeping you and your safety top of mind. 

To maintain social distancing, we have cancelled all daily wine tastings, tours and events; we will reassess in early April depending on updates from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Our wine shop at Nk'Mip will be open for curbside pick up only.  To place your wine order for curbside pick up, please call 250-583-9844 or shop online at https://www.greatestatesokanagan.com/ and select your pick up location at checkout.  We are also offering free shipping via Canada Post on all online orders of 6 bottles or more if you prefer your order delivered

We’ve increased the frequency of regularly scheduled cleanings and sanitization efforts. We regularly clean and sanitize the common areas – door handles, fridge door handles, automatic door operator plates, pin pads, countertops...basically anything your hands generally touch. Our teams regularly clean their workspaces including the register keyboard and are encouraged to wash or sanitize their hands on a frequent basis.

The health and well-being of our guests and employees is our priority. As such, we are communicating regularly with our employees to ensure they have the information and support they need to stay healthy during these unusual circumstances. Employees who do not feel well have been instructed to stay at home.

Thank you for being a loyal customer. Since this is an evolving situation, we will continue to provide information as it becomes available.

Please feel free to contact us directly at (250) 495-2985 or info@nkmipcellars.com if you have any questions or concerns.

Take care of yourself and each other,

Troy Ravndahl - Visitor Experience Manager, Nk'Mip Cellars

At Nk’Mip Cellars, we are the dedicated guardians of a proud legacy. As the first Indigenous-owned winery in North America, we are inspired to express our culture in everything we do. Our Winery itself is a bold celebration and a strong reflection of our commitment to authenticity and deep respect for our colourful past. We extend an invitation to discover, not only the international award-winning wines we produce, but also the relentless spirit and remarkable history that inspire them.

 

 

The land teaches us the power of patience and the pleasure of sharing.

Every Sip Takes you Back.

Every Sip Takes you Back.

The Osoyoos Indian Band, devoted to hard work, innovation, and responding to the challenges of nature, registered under the Indian Act as a reserve in 1877. The centuries-old home of the Osoyoos Indian Reserve is 32,000 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. Surrounded by time-weathered mountains and dotted by magnificent mirrored lakes, it reaches from Vernon to Tonasket and from Rock Creek to Princeton, with settlements including Osoyoos, Keremeos, Penticton and Kelowna owing their names to the Indigenous language.

Here in the hottest and driest part of Canada, over 500 Osoyoos Band members secure and share a legacy of hard work and a passionate respect for nature. The word Nk’Mip translates to “Bottomland” in English, being located at the southern end of the Osoyoos reservation. Today, the Nk’Mip Cellars are one of many business, health, social, educational and municipal initiatives that have earned the Band financial independence and high employment.

We are what we were
and always will be.
