- Nestled on the bank of the picturesque Shuswap River, Waterside Vineyard is located in an outstanding microclimate in the radiant North Okanagan Valley.
While the hot days, cool evenings and impeccable terroir of the region lend their expertise to produce the perfect grape, our viticulturists draw on a generations-old Mediterranean tradition of wine-crafting to deliver a crisp, robust and balanced artisanal wine to your table.
In 2009 seven acres of vines were planted with six grape varieties, in 2014 the Winery and Tasting Room were opened.
Kevin Verschoor and Jennifer Marcotte purchased the winery in April 2018 and have brought in three new varietals, and focused on vineyard improvements to increase the quality of the vines and wines.
Current Estate grown varietals from the Enderby vineyards are Ortega, Gewürztraminer, Siegerrebe, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Marechal Foch and Zweigelt, whilst the Castel is sourced locally.
Waterside Winery Tasting Room is open by appointment November – March, and open Tuesday – Sunday during the summer open hours in April – October.
Situated in Enderby, BC, Waterside winery is a scenic 20 minutes drive from Salmon Arm and 30 minutes drive from Vernon.
Waterside wines are available from the winery, online, or from select private wine stores throughout the Okanagan and Lower Mainland in British Columbia.
