  1. One of the best tasting experiences Iu2019ve ever had

     (5 / 5)

    Went to check out their chardonnay and ended up leaving with merlot too. Checkmate provides a very high end tasting experience and I left very impressed with the wine and the staff. Sometimes when I enter wineries I feel they size me up and determine whether or not i’m going to buy anything before I even start tasting. NOT the case with checkmate. Melodie was very friendly and gave a very informative tasting. A bit pricey but well worth it. Will definitely be back for more of the 2014 Knights challenge chardonnay.

  2. Well worth the time

     (5 / 5)

    My wife and I decided to visit this winery simply because of the interesting name. The scenic tasting room on its own was worth it. The views to the south, east and west are phenomenal. Our tasting was conducted by Phil, the winemaker and general manager. We tasted 4 Chardonnay wines and 2 Merlots. Each wine was accompanied by a detailed and interesting description of the growing location of the grapes used in each variety. The site is currently undergoing some construction. This, however should not dissuade you from visiting.

  3. Great Experience

     (5 / 5)

    CheckMate sets itself apart from most other wineries in the area by providing a high-end tasting experience. Within seconds of arriving in the parking lot, we were greeted by a golf cart and were driven a short distance to the tasting room. The tasting room was unique, the view was amazing, and the staff were both knowledgeable and very friendly. My family and I tasted 4 Chardonnays and 2 Merlots which were all enjoyable. Even though we ended up buying 2 bottles of Chardonnay, my only critique is the price of the wines (we spent just over two hundred dollars on two bottles of wine). However, if you’re looking for a differentiated, higher-end experience with higher quality wine, this winery is definitely worth visiting.

  4. Amazing

     (4 / 5)

    This winery is own by Anthony Von Mandl ( Mission Hill). They are located on the site of Domaine Combret/Antelope Ridge and are producing exceptional Chardonnay and merlot .in very small quantity. They are producing 6 chardonnay , the price varies between $80 and $125 . Our preference is the Fool’s mate and they offered 4 merlots. Our preferred is the Silent’s bishop and they are all $85. Their installation, a creation of Tom Kundig , recently opened last July and we had the opportunity to visit it and perform a tasting of all their wines. Since they are located on a hill, the view is stunning. The building is very design, modern , wide open. We really appreciated our visit with Natasha. The wines are exceptional and we should be proud of our Canadian wines. Those wines are world class and can easily competed with all the wines in the old world. Appointments are preferred to visit them .
