Mission Hill Family Estate
Mission Hill is one of the most impressive wineries anywhere—a reported $26 million investment by the owner of Mike's Hard Lemonade—set on a rise above Okanagan Lake. Shakespeare is performed in an amphitheater, private dinners are served beneath a Chagall tapestry, and a gorgeous kitchen doubles as a cooking-class studio. The wines, such as the fragrant yet crisp Five Vineyards Pinot Blanc, can't match the splendor of their setting, but they come close. Bottle for bottle, no Canadian property is more accomplished.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
