Ancient Hill Estate Winery is a boutique winery in the beautiful, rural, Ellison area of North Kelowna. Located directly across from the Kelowna Airport, on land originally planted to grapes more than 60 years ago. Ancient Hill Winery specializes in small lots of tasty wines. The wines are made entirely from grapes grown in their own vineyard and processed on-site in their European style winery.
The name "Ancient Hill" was chosen as an acknowledgement of the natural forces that created the terroir of their vineyard. Around 25,000 years ago, the site of Ancient Hill was covered by glaciers. These eventually started melting and in the process deposited large amounts of sand and gravel. Gradually, a massive glacial lake called "Lake Penticton" was formed. About 10,000 years ago, the site of Ancient Hill was under water, being a part of the shores of "Lake Penticton".
The logo symbolizes the interconnectedness of the various elements of Nature that are needed to create wine. Earth, Air and Water are inextricably combined. They provide the platform for the eternal circle of life to play out. In the case of Ancient Hill Estate Winery, the growth of the grape vine and the fruit it produces.
