At Nk’Mip Cellars, we are the dedicated guardians of a proud legacy. As the first Indigenous-owned winery in North America, we are inspired to express our culture in everything we do. Our Winery itself is a bold celebration and a strong reflection of our commitment to authenticity and deep respect for our colourful past. We extend an invitation to discover, not only the international award-winning wines we produce but also the relentless spirit and remarkable history that inspire them.
The Osoyoos Indian Band, devoted to hard work, innovation, and responding to the challenges of nature, registered under the Indian Act as a reserve in 1877. The centuries-old home of the Osoyoos Indian Reserve is 32,000 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. Surrounded by time-weathered mountains and dotted by magnificent mirrored lakes, the Okanagan Nation reaches from Vernon to Tonasket and from Rock Creek to Princeton, with settlements including Osoyoos, Keremeos, Penticton and Kelowna owing their names to the Indigenous language.
Here in the hottest and driest part of Canada, over 500 Osoyoos Band members secure and share a legacy of hard work and passionate respect for nature. The word Nk’Mip translates to “Bottomland” in English, is located at the southern end of the Osoyoos reservation. Today, the Nk’Mip Cellars are one of many businesses, health, social, educational, and municipal initiatives that have earned the Band financial independence and high employment.
