Land so fertile, it grew one of the best restaurants in the country.
Old Vines Restaurant is a farm-to-table culinary destination focused on ingredients that are both sustainably sourced and local. Our vegetables come from a farm down the road. Our beef and lamb graze on the pasture across the lake. Our grapes grow just 20 feet from our front door. In this way, we celebrate the gastronomic essence of the Okanagan Valley—the complexity of our volcanic earth, the minerality of our glacial till, and the cool breeze from the lake that makes everything grow with such vigor.
Knowledge Grows Here.
Knowledge in Action
Old Vines Restaurant joined the Ocean Wise initiative in 2007 soon after its launch in BC. Based on Culinary Director Roger Sleiman's philosophy to use sustainable and local ingredients, we have continued to ensure our seafood along with proteins are ethically caught and raised.
Farm to Table
At Quails' Gate, great wine starts in the vineyard. We take that same thinking when sourcing ingredients at Old Vines Restaurant, supporting local farmers and consciously selecting the best our region has to offer. Our philosophy is of fresh simplicity: the menu is inspired by regional Okanagan and West Coast ingredients prepared in the classical tradition.
As one of the original winery restaurants in West Kelowna and one of the top-ranked in the Okanagan, Old Vines Restaurant begins with the wine. Our menus are passionately created by an award-winning culinary team who taste our wine from grape to glass. The result is an incredible experience of the Okanagan.
One of the things that make our farm-business model work is the continued support of restaurants like Old Vines at Quails’ Gate Winery. The commitment to quality that Chef Roger has and his support of local, sustainable farming is what helps farms like ours grow and prosper.
