Kalala was established in West Kelowna in 2006. The company’s name means “miracle place,” representing the winery’s commitment to harmony with nature and organic viticulture practices. Kalala is a family-owned and operated business founded by Karnail Singh Sidhu, who is driven by his passion for farming and producing high-quality products at an affordable price. Certified organic in 2010, Kalala’s philosophy is to allow the varietal characteristics and West Kelowna terroir to be truly expressed and enhanced by minimal handling during winemaking.
Kalala works with 100% organic vineyards and is also SalmonSafe Certified, an organization that works to reduce the impacts of agriculture on the ecosystems where B.C. salmon spawn. The company also supports organizations such as the JDRF Foundation and is collecting donations at their winery to build a school in the village in India they honoured with their company name.
