World-renowned Okanagan winery announces the return of stylish, seasonal dining destination, along with new national ‘Bring Mission Hill Home’ contest
A destination in its own right, and ranked ‘One of the Top 5 Winery Restaurants in the World’ (Travel + Leisure magazine), Mission Hill Family Estate’s Terrace Restaurant is now open for the 2018 season. The outdoor Terrace is internationally acclaimed for its awe-inspiring al fresco dining experience overlooking rows of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards set against the backdrop of beautiful Okanagan Lake.
Chef Patrick Gayler’s inspiring menus offer stylish, seasonal wine country fare. Each dish is created to pair perfectly with Mission Hill’s exceptional wines. Local family-owned farms grow organic produce and fruit specifically for the Terrace kitchens, which complement the herbs and vegetables grown in the Estate’s own varietal gardens. Even the 100% pure Estate Honey used in the kitchens is harvested from bee hives located on-site at the winery.
As a champion of the Ocean Wise™ conservation program, Mission Hill Family Estate has a longstanding commitment to sourcing and providing ocean-friendly seafood options in an effort to infuse sustainable practices at every stage of our food preparation and service.
The Terrace Restaurant launches its spring menu with fresh new features including Okanagan Valley asparagus with plum garlic and hazelnut brown butter, and freshly made durum-wheat pasta with wild scallops, side stripe shrimp and local parmesan.

This season, the much-anticipated Long Table Dinner Series returns. This series of unique wine-paired dining takes place al fresco, with your evening beginning with a reception as the sun sets over Okanagan lake. Private Events Chef Adam Vaughan will then showcase the seasonality of the region’s terroir with each dinner offering a unique 3 course, wine-paired menu. The series includes: ‘A Summer Soiree’ (Jun 30th), ‘Food Day Canada Celebration’ (Aug 4th) ‘A Taste of Harvest’ (Sept 1st).
NEW: ‘Bring Mission Hill Home’ Contest
As well, this year marks the launch of the Bring Mission Hill Home contest. This is Mission Hill’s first ever national culinary program, pairing the winery’s Terrace restaurant dishes with Mission Hill wines in home kitchens across the country. The Mission Hill culinary team will travel to multiple cities across Canada — including Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal — to bring the full Mission Hill winery experience to ten lucky winners. At each stop, the chefs will prepare a four-course meal, share expert tips, and leave behind a STAUB cast iron cooking set, a beautiful Zwilling Henckels 6-piece professional knife set, and a Mission Hill Family Estate gift basket to complete your immersive winery experience. The contest is open now and runs through the year. Details available at bringmissionhillhome.com.
