Come to Marionette and be inspired. Our artisanal wines are crafted to match the beauty and uniqueness of the Shuswap. Marionette winery is the first winery built within the city limits of Salmon Arm. It’s only a couple of minutes away from downtown and just off the Trans-Canada highway between Salmon Arm and Sicamous. Marionette sits on a gorgeous south-facing slope with a panoramic view of Mt. Ida and the southern skies.
The vision of Marionette winemakers Jamie Smith and Amanda Eastwood is to create wines that embody the tradition and elegance of old world winemaking which also reflect the outstanding terroirs of British Columbia. Jamie and Amanda both have university degrees in winemaking and learned their craft in the Loire Valley in France and the Alentejo region of Portugal.
The Marionette name comes from a theatre troupe that once resided on the Marionette property. They traveled throughout the interior of BC performing live theatre with their own handcrafted marionettes.
