Recline Ridge Vineyards and Winery is family-owned and operated and nestled in the heart of the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia. Although north of the 50th parallel, the vineyards enjoy sun-drenched days and cool evenings. The climate maximizes varietal character and sets the stage for the production of award-winning wines noted for their clean sound structure, intense flavours, and perfect balance.

The Recline Ridge Winery was established in 1998, and the original vines were planted in 1994. The winery itself is a cedar log house, originally constructed as a family home for a customer in Japan. After construction by a local builder, heavy seas and poor weather caused the shipment to arrive wet during the ocean voyage to Japan. The customer refused the shipment, returning it to BC. A duplicate house was constructed to replace the original one. This ended up being erected as the Recline Ridge Winery building. The Wine Shop and Tasting Bar occupy the main floor.
