Sonora Room Restaurant at Burrowing Owl

Reserve Your Table

The story of the burrowing owl in British Columbia is a good news story.  In 1980, the burrowing owl was declared extirpated (extinct) in the province.  Now, however, the population of birds is growing thanks to a very successful captive breeding program established and operated by the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of British Columbia (BOCS).  Burrowing Owl Estate Winery’s proprietors, Jim and Midge Wyse, have been members and active supporters of the BOCS since 1993, and since 2002 their winery has contributed over one million dollars to the program.

British Columbia’s south Okanagan region has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience.

The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery has featured prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and of course scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 140 acres of picturesque vineyard from both the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room.

The philosophy of the talented culinary team at the Sonora Room Restaurant is to embrace the privilege and the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers with their array of local organic produce, fresh, seasonal fruits and artisan breads and cheeses. The focus is on excellence in a relaxed and spectacular vineyard setting.

An exclusive wine list is changed regularly to include a selection of Burrowing Owl library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. And, the wine selection is enhanced with alternate premium Okanagan wines chosen to complement the menu. Lunch and dinner are served daily throughout the season and reservations are recommended.

Through creative locavore cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlighting the great agricultural diversity of the region, the Sonora Room Restaurant delivers an exceptional wine country dining experience.

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery is located in the town of Oliver in the South Okanagan region of British Columbia. Burrowing Owl Estate Winery produces premium VQA wines and also has an 11 room guest house, a wine shop and a fine-dining restaurant on site.
