Boasting more than 200 wineries, BC’s Okanagan Valley has quickly earned a well-deserved reputation as one of Canada’s premier wine regions, rated number two in the world by USA Today in 2016. Vintages produced here have won gold in virtually every major wine competition worldwide and the quality of the wine continues to improve over time.
Guests can immerse themselves in the heart of a winery, taste from the barrel and enjoy a delectable meal on one of many on-site winery restaurants or overnight accommodations. Since many wineries are relatively small, owner-operated businesses, visits are intimate and often involve the winery owners and/or the wine makers. Unique hands-on and interactive experiences are what make winery touring truly special.
Remarkable wines are matched by the area’s outstanding dining experiences. Since the region’s distinct, harvest-friendly micro-climate produces such an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, the farm-to-table movement is vibrant and has attracted some of the country’s best chefs and sommeliers.
