The passion of Daniel and Christy Bibby, Nighthawk Vineyards has evolved into an exclusive award-winning winery, offering exceptional hand crafted wines and a personal experience that keeps wine lovers coming back.
During these unprecedented times, we have seen many changes to the wine industry and other parts of our everyday lives. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has always been our position to follow the advice of the professionals who work with our local health authority for the best way to care for the safety of our guests and our family. Following their advice, we have made changes to the way we operate our winery for our mutual protection. Although there are a few protocols that may feel different, the genuine care for our guests and personal wine experience at Nighthawk Vineyards will continue to be our top priority. Below are some of the things you can expect to see differently when visiting the winery:
• Our tasting room will be limited to a maximum of 6 people. We will be able to have group tastings of up to 6 guests, or 2 groups of 2 at a time in the wine shop. We encourage you to book a reservation to ensure that you do not experience any kind of wait time.
• To practice social distancing, we are following the mandate of the Provincial Health Officer of British Columbia in keeping groups of winery guests to a minimum of 2 meters apart, including our outdoor patio space.
• We have added hand sanitizer stations at the wine tasting counter, and if you prefer that our team wear a mask while serving you, we will be happy to do so.
• We have reviewed and increased our sanitation protocols for all high touchpoints within the winery and restrooms.
• Guests who may have been in contact with someone experiencing symptoms similar to Covid-19 or feel ill themselves, will not be allowed to visit the winery at this time.
These are critical measures to assist with preventing the spread of Covid-19. We are all in this together, and look forward to welcoming you back to Nighthawk Vineyards in a safe and secure way.
As guardians of the vineyard, the Nighthawks return each spring to make this magical valley their home and nest during the growing season.

Nighthawk Vineyards is very proud to feature the inspiring artwork of renowned Okanagan artist Alex Fong on all of our labels. Alex is a good friend and has truly captured the majestic view from our vineyard…bringing our local Nighthawks to the forefront. Alex Fong has a personal style that has since become his hallmark. His translucent, impressionistic paintings are distinguished by a parade of coloured flecks that he calls ‘confetti’, to represent his celebration of life. The result is an exquisite balance of spontaneity and grace. Alex Fong’s work has attracted the attention of fine art collectors since the early days when he exhibited at Vancouver galleries, through his years as a touring member of the Western Lights Artist’s Group. Alex was a recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2003, recognizing his dedicated community service. Alex Fong’s artistic vision continues to evolve, his work reflecting a delightfully fresh and youthful outlook. “A child views the world with optimism and wonder. That is what I hope to accomplish with my art. Each day, I look forward to creating something new and wonderful,” he says. “I paint to make people feel good, and to put a little joy into their lives. Joy, splendour and whimsy, sprinkled with a few unusual surprises…Welcome to Fong’s World.”
