Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery

About The Winery

Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery is set in the sunny Okanagan Valley wine region. Hainle has a strong commitment to organic viticulture and winemaking. Its vineyards are managed organically, and all of its cellar practices adhere to organic winemaking standards, dedicated to producing highest-quality, naturally dry, fully fermented wines. Hainle Winery holds a special place in the wine history of Canada. Not only is it an award-winning organic winery, but it is also the birthplace of ice wine in North America. In 1972, the owner of the winery, Walter Hainle, developed a reputation and secured a special place in the wine history books. By a stroke of genius, he turned a disaster into a lucrative miracle. Rather than allow an early frost to obliterate an entire year's worth of grape production, Hainle recalled his own Germanic tradition of turning frozen grapes into delicious dessert wines. Despite the icy-cold harvesting conditions, he carefully collected the frozen grapes that yielded the sweet nectar essential to the production of Peachland's first 40 litres of ice wine.
