Bonamici Cellars 

The Journey begins with a wonderful Italian tradition and passion for celebrating life with great wine and food with family & friends.

Founded in 2012, Bonamici Cellars was created by consulting winemaker, Philip Soo with good friend and business partner Mario Rodi. They met while working in the corporate world – Phil as a
winemaker and Mario in sales & marketing. Sharing a passion for great Italian wines and a love for the Okanagan inspired them to create Bonamici Cellars.

Bonamici – Italian for “good friends” captures the essence of the brand. It’s about celebrating life with great wine and delicious food bringing family & friends together around the table to enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures.

In 2016, after searching extensively for a permanent home for Bonamici they found the ideal site – a picturesque 10 acre property in the Okanagan Falls area surrounded by world class award-winning wineries. Since then, a nine acre vineyard has been planted and a tasting room opened with a new production facility planned for completion in the fall of 2020.
