Visit Us at Nk’Mip Cellars
At Nk’Mip Cellars, we are the dedicated guardians of a proud legacy. As the first Indigenous-owned winery in North America, we are inspired to express our culture in everything we do. Our property is located on 1,200 acres of band land in the town of Osoyoos. This southern Okanagan area is home to Canada's only pocket desert. With some of the most spectacular views in the Okanagan, this region is well known for its long, hot summer days, cool nights, mild winters and minimal rainfall. The Qwam Qwmt series of wines, translated to “achieving excellence” are a reflection of the focus of our viticulture and winemaking teams toward this vision.
Our wines can be ordered online at www.greatestatesokanagan.com. Receive FREE SHIPPING (post office pick up) on 6+ bottles or upgrade to doorstep delivery (shipping fees apply) for delivery to BC, MB, SK and NS.
Tours & Experiences
Nk’Mip Cellars was designed by Robert MacKenzie, a Penticton-based architect with a passion for celebrating the Okanagan character and advancing sustainable practices. The Cellars are as much about the people who visit as the building itself, offering memorable experiences that provide powerful insight into our way of life. Nestled in our vineyard overlooking the town of Osoyoos, Nk'Mip Cellars has a world-class seasonal Patio Restaurant featuring a locally sourced menu, and spectacular views of the lake and surrounding hills.
