We are thankful for the visitors who have made pizza on the JoieFarm Winery lawn a regular stop during their summer holidays. We take great pride in being the first winery in Naramata to offer wood-fired pizza. This summer, we are proud to offer a new culinary experience on the Naramata Bench: Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique. 

After 15 years of dedicated winemaking, Heidi has actively spent the summer cooking with her partner JJ Skidmore, Chef Brian Skinner and Lina Caschetto.

Chef Brian Skinner joined us while he prepares to open his new restaurant venture in Kelowna in the late autumn. His past experience includes cooking at Michelin Star restaurants such as Noma in Copenhagen and opened his first award winning restaurant The Acorn in Vancouver.

Heidi and JJ met Lina this past March in Arles, France while eating and being inspired to create a new wine pairing menu of small plates to amplify the JoieFarm wine portfolio for tasting room guests. Having kept in touch, Lina joins Joie for the month of August.

We all have enjoyed a summer of exploring the Okanagan’s bounty, creating dishes both traditional and modern, all with the very best intention of putting a hyper-local, seasonal food forward.

We invite you to come by and give our new menu a try. Our new menu is a purposeful reflection of the foods that have inspired our owner, winemaker and chef to make our wines. As a result, we are offering foods that not only pair well with our wines but also explore and promote the bounty of the Okanagan Valley.

Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique Hours
Open 12pm to 4pm Thursdays to Mondays* (weather dependent) 
Closed Tuesdays to Wednesdays 
We operate on a first-come-first served basis and do not take reservations
*open Monday August 6, 13 and 20
