Kelowna Wine Trails

The Okanagan Valley is known for its spectacular vineyards producing premium quality wines that regularly win national and international wine competitions and recognition. Few wine-producing regions in the world can match our combination of mountains, lakes, fresh air and intense sunlight with so many grape varietals.

Over 25 wineries are located in Kelowna with well over 200 wineries in the whole Okanagan Valley region. The sun-drenched valley surrounding Kelowna is dotted with farm-gate wineries too, where each vintage is lovingly bottled by hand. All wineries offer wine tasting. Wine tours can last from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the winery. Many wineries have unique and delicious food services available. Gourmet regional cuisine, tapas-style fare or cheese and fruit platters are served either indoors or on protected patios, all with spectacular lake and valley views. Reservations are not required. Tours are open to people of all ages, however guests or youth under the age of 19 are not permitted to taste the wine.

The Wines of British Columbia reflect the agricultural and natural heritage of British Columbia. When you savour the aroma and taste the wines, you are experiencing something uniquely BC. Along the way you will even learn how to identify some traits of great tasting wines.

Worry Free Wine Touring - There are a number of Guided Tour Operators that can customize your wine tour for you. Leave the driving to them, sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery the vineyards have to offer and get local knowledge while on your wine tour.
