Spring into Summer with Wine Festival Events and Okanagan Wine Tours
Besides apples and Ogopogo, one of the other things the Okanagan is best known for is wine. There is no better way to sip and savour all this bountiful valley has to offer than by embarking on Okanagan wine tours and checking out the many events that take place during the Okanagan Wine Festivals in summer.
Here are just some of the events and excursions where you can enjoy wine time from your Kelowna hotel.
Summertime is for wine lovers
If you’re looking to smell fresh mountain air and enjoy the sun, then summer is a great time to look for Kelowna hotel deals and experience the Summer Okanagan Wine Festival, which takes place on August 11.
The Mile High Wine & Music Festival, which is held 5280 feet above sea level at SilverStar Mountain Resort in Vernon, offers over 120 BC wines for tasting, live music, in the village, delicious food to fill up on, and beautiful outdoor mountain setting to complete the experience.
The sipping is easy in Kelowna
Summer is a fantastic time to enjoy all that Kelowna has to offer, and wine is at the top of that list. Whether you’re enjoying a zesty zinfandel and taking in the view from one of the many winery patios or enjoying an al fresco meal in a vineyard, make the most of the sipping season by checking out the numerous winery routes in the area.
The Lakeshore Wine Route will give you a taste of Kelowna’s certified organic wines and sustainable farming practices with lake views to help you fully appreciate what nature has to offer. Moving away from the lakeside, and closer to the mountains, Kelowna’s FAB Five will have you sipping wines in a vintage apple packinghouse setting! Lastly, explore downtown with the Downtown Grapes to Grains Route, and complement your wine tasting with spirits, ciders and beers.
