About Us

Our Story

When you visit us at Oliver Twist Estate Winery and our 17-acre vineyard in the heart of Oliver and South Okanagan Wine Country, you will be met with heart, personality, nostalgia, and great wine.

From the memorabilia collection inside the wine shop to the classic hot rod cars and pinup models that adorn some of our labels, the sense of history and love at our family run winery is unmistakable. In fact, some of our most popular wines are a series called “NOSTALGIA”, which is based on this theme. Our Rockabilly Red is sure to be one wine you won’t want to miss.

Gina Fernandes Harfman is the fourth generation from her family to sink her hands into South Okanagan soil. Her ancestors had an agricultural vision, and she has carried on family traditions here on the Black Sage Bench in Oliver BC.

The hands-on approach favoured by Gina and previous owner/winemaker Denice Hagerman, along with their attention to detail, ensure that the highest quality vinifera grapes are grown in the vineyard. The attention to detail continues throughout the entire winemaking process.

The winery offers a large selection of wines: from dry to off-dry whites and rosés, medium to full-bodied reds, sparkling, dessert wines including a fortified port-style wine and a late harvest Kerner, although it is best known for its dry Kerner—a rarity in the region.

Guests can meet the forever entertaining team who play a huge role in this young, family-operated business. Customers are encouraged to enjoy a glass of wine or sangria (in warm seasons) and relax on one of the estate’s scenic patios, taking in the valley views of the rugged desert hills, vineyards, and orchards. Oliver Twist Estate Winery is proud to contribute another little piece of heaven in South Okanagan’s beautiful wine country.
