Our Philosophy:

Mission Hill offers experiences like no other, and our mission is to show the world how the Okanagan Valley is a leader in wine. From our stunning location perched atop the sweeping hills of West Kelowna, guests overlook rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay enjoying world-class service in our award wining restaurant, attending one of our Private Events such as our Concert Series or simply joining in our Wine Boutique.

We’re a proudly Canadian company committed to developing talent from within. From our Wine Career Development Program to our mission of filling 80% of roles internally, we seek to ensure our people are invested in, supported, challenged, and offered exposure to the diverse careers in the world of wine.

Your Culinary Journey:

At Mission Hill Family Estate, our culinary program is dedicated to the sourcing and promotion of local, sustainable, seasonal food. Our Cuisine du Terroir approach lends itself to a light-handed manner of preparation that respects the character of the ingredient and where it is sourced. Our varietal and herb gardens are steps away from our kitchens, and we educate and encourage our team members to explore foraging opportunities that lay at our doorstep.

From farm tours to food and wine tastings, we strive to ensure our team acquires the knowledge and appreciation of the valley and the winery needed to surpass our guests’ expectations. Each team member will have the opportunity to hone their culinary skills and develop professional relationships that will last a lifetime while working with our accomplished and celebrated culinary team.
