What’s New Around Our West Kelowna B&B

Little Straw Vineyards

The Slamka family who owned Little Straw Vineyards have been long-time neighbours and friends of ours, have decided to retire, and have sold their winery to Kalala Wines, another West Kelowna Winery. They will be converting the vineyards to organic grapes  where they will be introducing a new premium organic label, Dostana Wines. Dostana means friendship in Hindi language. In the meantime you can enjoy their wines under the Little Straw label. They hope to have their patio restuarnt up and running again this summer.
