Founded in 2012, Bonamici Cellars is a collaboration between consulting winemaker, Philip Soo and good friend and business partner Mario Rodi. Phil and Mario met while working in the corporate world – Phil as a winemaker and Mario in sales and marketing. Sharing a passion for great Italian wines and a love for the Okanagan inspired them to create Bonamici Cellars.

Bonamici – Italian for “good friends” captures the essence of the brand. It’s about celebrating life with great wine and delicious food bringing family and friends together around the table to enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures.

In 2016, after searching extensively for a permanent home for Bonamici they found the ideal site – a picturesque 10-acre property in the Okanagan Falls area surrounded by world class award winning wineries. Since then, a 9-acre vineyard has been planted, a beautiful tasting room and picnic area overlooking stunning valley views opened and a new production facility completed in the Fall of 2020.

We invite you to visit and Discover BONAMICI – experience our hand-crafted, Italian inspired wines.
