Terralux Estate Winery

By: Anthony Gismondi
A new winery launches in West Kelowna

Terralux Estate Winery is still under construction, and it hopes to add to British Columbia’s growing number of impressive winery facilities by the fall of 2024.

The winery and its estate vineyard sit in the northern shadows of Mt Boucherie and will undoubtedly add even more glitter to the West Kelowna winery trail. They bottled their first wines in 2018, working with their West Kelowna estate grapes and two other sites they own in Okanagan Falls and the Similkameen Valley. We spoke with Kevin Rossion, the winery's General Manager and Vineyard Manager at the recent Vancouver International Wine Festival and asked him to explain Terralux's direction. He talked about vineyards and wines and revealed some of the stunning details going into the winery. Kevin invites you all to visit the winery site and take in the pop-up tasting room, available all summer until the project comes to fruition later in the year.
