It's the journey to a new place, something undiscovered, where anything is possible, anything achievable, as long as you have a good friend along the way.

Our Journey:

Founded in June 2012, Bonamici Cellars was created by consulting winemaker, Philip Soo with good friend and business partner Mario Rodi. Both having more than 15 successful years of experience in the wine industry, our passion for wine and the wine business has inspired us to create the Bonamici brand.

Bonamici – Italian for “good friends” captures the essence of our brand which is to share our passion for great wine and food with family and friends.

Beginning our journey as a virtual winery, our focus has been to craft the highest quality wines that the Okanagan has to offer.  A few short years later, we are excited to share the news that we have found the ideal site in the Okanagan Falls area for the new home of Bonamici Cellars. Our journey continues as we build out our winery, tasting room and planting new vines on the property. In addition to our home site, we will continue to make wines from our leased vineyard property in the Osooyos area of the south Okanagan as we wait for future harvests of our newly planted vineyard. Please come and help celebrate the next step of our journey by joining us at our tasting room in Okanagan Falls scheduled to open in April 2018. Look forward to sharing our wines and our story with all of you!

This is the most charming new wine label from an Okanagan winery in some time. The charm triggered a spontaneous smile when I first saw it. And I kept smiling when I tasted the two wines....
