Kalala Organic Estate Winery
In the pursuit of harmony
Kalala Organic Estate Winery is located on the Upper Bench of beautiful West Kelowna, in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.
Karnail Singh Sidhu, from the village of Kalala, has been in the Okanagan since 1993. Karnail is a 3rd generation organic farmer; however, he also has a degree in Electrical Engineering! When he moved to Canada, they did not recognize his degree. Therefore, he went back to his roots. He started working at Summerhill Winery in 1995 where he learned how to manage the vineyards and winemaking. He worked there for 10 years, departing in 2005 to pursue his dream of starting his own winery. He began producing Kalala wines in 2006 and officially opened Kalala Organic Estate Winery on July 5, 2008.
Since Karnail started Kalala Organic Estate Winery in 2008, our portfolio of wines has been rewarded with multiple international medals since the first vintage, including two gold medals at the prestigious Chardonnay du Monde competition in France. In 2020, Karnail won Viticulturist of the Year 2019, which is the first awarded in BC. This award shows that Karnail grows the best grapes in BC.
