Year after year Wild Goose wines have exhibited the best that Mother Nature has to offer. From carefully grown grapes to the delicate bottling process; Wild Goose wines are benchmarks of British Columbia winemaking at its best.

History of Wild Goose Vineyards:

It all began in early 1983 when founder Adolf Kruger purchased a barren piece of land east of Okanagan Falls. Upon his return to his newly purchased property he discovered a large flock of Canada geese feeding amongst the tumbleweeds, boulders, and rubble. As he approached, the flock of geese took flight and flew to the north.  This vision inspired Adolf to call the property Wild Goose Vineyards.

Adolf first planted Riesling and Gewurztraminer; he quickly secured a contract to sell the grapes to Mission Hill Winery. Over the next few years Mission Hill produced outstanding wines from these aromatic grapes. In the late eighties Adolf and two other parties formed a plan that would allow smaller wineries to make wine using grapes grown on site that could be sold through the “farm gate.” After much lobbying and persistence the farm gate winery was born in British Columbia.

Wild Goose Winery was the seventeenth winery in BC and was established in June 1990.  The winery started producing Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Marechal Foch. Consumers quickly took to the concept of small wineries and flocked to the Okanagan Valley to spend time on the beach, play a little golf, and tour wineries. Over time Wild Goose would establish itself as one of the premium small producers of VQA wines.  

In July of 2021, the Wyse family of Burrowing Owl Vineyards proudly announced their acquisition of the tremendously popular Wild Goose Vineyards & Winery. Burrowing Owl Estate Winery’s knowledge and experience in producing ultra-premium wines provide a solid platform for Wild Goose products to continue delivering excellence for years to come.
