Desert Hills (Black Sage, Oliver)

Brothers Randy and Jesse Toor recently founded Desert Hills Estate Winery after having planted land on the Black Sage bench with vinifera. It is a family-run estate winery and is located in a non-descript building dwarfed by the sizeable house adjacent to it (be sure to turn left folks!).


Desert Hills’ production, like others on the Black Sage, is primarily focused on red wines. The winery’s most well loved wine among a quirky mix of varieties is Syrah.

Desert Hills Estate Winery currently produces:

2005 Unoaked Chardonnay
2005 Pinot Gris
2005 Gamay Noir
2003 Meritage
2003 Syrah (regular and select)

Notes on Tastings:

Like all Okanagan Wineries, Desert Hills gets busy in the summer. Parking space is not overly abundant, and the driveway is narrow. Tastings are free, but ID is required for people who appear to be under 25. The tasting room is small and relatively standard, and the staff (at least when we were there) was polite, if not overly cordial. Tours are offered throughout the summer.

Last Word:

If you have extra time, make the stop. They make some fabulous wines and are an simple visit just off of Black Sage road.

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery is just a few minutes further down the road, and if it’s spectacular scenery you are looking for, venture that way.
