NK'Mip Cellars (pronounced in-ka-meep) is North America's first Aboriginal owned and operated winery. The winery is owned by the Osoyoos Band and is operated in a joint venture with Vincor. Winemaker Randy Pickton makes wines mostly using grapes from the Band's Inkameep Vineyard, established in 1968 in Oliver and from the estate vineyard around the winery.  

John Schreiner, in his Okanagan Wine Tour Guide wrote "A demanding winemaker, Pickton is able to get grapes from the vineyard's top sites, hand-tended by the vineyard's most experienced crew. When Pickton asks the vineyard for special favours, he gets them - and repays the favours by making award-winning wines."

The wines being poured are:
NK'Mip Cellars 2008 Qwam Qwmt Chardonnay, was $24.99 now $23.50
