Their wines are great but added to that - if you buy a bottle then you can also bring your own picnic and sit outside on their lovely terrace. Great day had by all. Best wine was their gurwitztraminer.

When I am asked to select the top five Wineries on Summerland's Bottleneck Drive, Heaven's Gate is always one I recommend. We were there again on the weekend (I am a local) enjoying some wine-tasting for a birthday celebration and were reminded what a stunningly beautiful setting it is to sip on some fine wines.
