CheckMate Artisanal Winery welcomes back guests…

It’s no secret that CheckMate is one of our #FavouriteThings with their 100 point Little Pawn Chardonnays, deliciously robust Merlots, and classic Chardonnays. CheckMate is also a winery we love to visit so it is very exciting that CheckMate is now welcoming visitors to experience their highly rated wines, by reserving ahead.

The traditional wine tasting experience has been completely ‘re-imagined’. Offering new tailored guest experiences as they welcome back guests to their tasting rooms for the summer season.

Next World Wines.

It has been an incredible journey to work towards the creation of iconic Chardonnays and Merlots in one of the most diverse and exciting wine regions in the world.

The Best Wines Start in the Vineyard.

CheckMate wines are artfully crafted using time honoured, traditional techniques to highlight their unique expression of terroir. This dedication to the vineyard has led to two consecutive 100 point vintages of Little Pawn Chardonnay and international acclaim with over 200 wine ratings of 90+.

Reimagined summer tastings and tours 

Every tasting experience has been tailored to showcase what makes the winery shine. Guests can tour the  vineyards, learn about the terroir, all while raising a glass to summer in the Okanagan. (available by reservation)

CheckMate Artisanal Winery, located in Oliver, specializes in producing the highest quality, limited quantities of Chardonnay and Merlot. This year, CheckMate was awarded the first ever back-to-back 100-point scores for a Canadian table wine, with its 2015 and 2016 Little Pawn Chardonnays. With this, CheckMate has now been awarded nearly two-hundred 90+ scores for its portfolio of wines. Guests will enjoy the Advantage Tasting, a 45-minute Sommelier-guided tasting of a curated set of six CheckMate wines. While onsite, guests will experience first-hand the evolution of CheckMate, as the winery is being completely rearchitected and rebuilt into a contemporary new facility that, once complete, will be a work of art on its own that will literally glow up on the hillside. Private wine tastings will be hosted in the winery’s transitional tasting lounge. Discover more at
