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 & 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 & 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.
