Tasting Room is open March to October – Monday to Sunday 11am to 5pm
Da Silva Vineyards and Winery is located on the beautiful Naramata Bench alongside Misconduct Wine Co.
To mark the 10 year anniversary of launching Misconduct Wine Co, Richard and Twylla are unveiling a new look and brand identity which reflects their evolution, winemaking and family history.
The Da Silva label will focus on creating age worthy small lot wines centered on our 11 unique and diverse vineyards. We are steadfast in our belief that the geography of a grape’s growth is one of the most important factors in its resulting quality. We are dedicated to creating wines that are reflective of the personalities of our vineyards, using low intervention winemaking techniques and extended cellar aging.
Our story began in 1955 when the da Silva family first emigrated to the Naramata Bench from Portugal with only a suitcase in hand. From these humble beginnings, our family quickly applied hard work and farming technique, acquiring their first family farm in 1959.With over 60 years of farming in the Southern Okanagan Valley, the da Silva family intrinsically understands the many unique and diverse aspects of this land.
“Today, we continue the tradition with a deep-rooted connection and respect for the land”, says Richard da Silva, Proprietor and Vigneron of Da Silva Vineyards and Winery. “Twylla and I drew extensively from this heritage when creating our winery in 2008 and the evolution of our journey and wines are a testament to our long family lineage. Our journey has been a true discovery of place.”
Misconduct Wine Co. wines are available for purchase in the Da Silva Vineyards and Winery tasting room and at The Kitchen restaurant with plans to open a new Misconduct winery location soon. Thank you for visiting us…we hope you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoyed making them….
