Mount Boucherie winery needs space to sip, sell

Plans for an expansion of a West Kelowna winery will come before city council on Tuesday.

Owners of Mount Boucherie Winery intend to more than double its retail and tasting area.

The expansion of the visitor centre will include a 75-seat indoor lounge and a 75-person patio.

“This project will take two years and become one of the grandest winery experience centres in British Columbia,” the winery says on its website.

“The winery will become one of the jewels of the industry with a dining lounge focused on the fine local cuisine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.”

City planners recommend council approve the project, saying it fits in with the neighbourhood and complements the existing Wine Trail along Boucherie Road.

A larger expansion of the winery proposed last year did not make it to council for consideration after the applicants asked it be removed from the agenda once several councillors began saying the proposal was simply too big for the site.

“Perhaps scale it down, a little more quaintness as opposed to monstrosity,” Coun. Rick de Jong said at that 2017 council meeting.

Work has already begun on the latest expansion project.
