Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna, British Columbia was established in 1966 by a group of local businessmen at a cost of approximately $500,000.
Until 1996, Mission Hill had purchased grapes from vineyards owned by others to produce wine, with no vineyard holdings of its own. It started to purchase its own vineyards in 1996. Mission Hill now owns 900 acres of vineyards, which account for around 12 percent of the total vineyard space in British Columbia. The vineyards are primarily located in the Southern Okanagan Valley, as well as Naramata and Mount Boucherie. [Cited: Wikipedia 2013]
