The Okanagan’s Hidden Gem
Located just north of hotels in Kelowna near the airport, including the Comfort Suites, Lake Country is a burgeoning wine region known for its unique and beautiful topography. This sparse region is a mixture of residential, agricultural and natural landscape and is set amongst rolling hills, Ponderosa pine forest and sparkling lakes, including the crowning jewel that is Okanagan Lake.
The Scenic Sip
With a long history in fruit production, Lake Country’s eight wineries are located amongst the area’s hills and vales that stretch from Carr’s Landing in the north to the Ellison area just east of Kelowna International Airport. In between are the communities of Oyama, Okanagan Centre and Winfield. Like the communities where they are located, each Lake Country winery has its own unique charm and inspiration from old world European to West Coast modern.
The Taste Lake Country event is taking place at all 8 Lake Country wineries, all of which are located close to our Kelowna airport hotel. One participant includes the area’s newest establishment O’Rourke’s Peak Cellar, which features a 4,000 sq. ft. production facility with a tasting room, restaurant and event space.
Other established wineries that are part of the event include:
- Arrowleaf Cellars
- Intrigue Wines
- 50th Parallel Estate
- Ex Nihilo Vineyards
- Gray Monk Estate Winery
- Ancient Hill Estate Winery
- Blind Tiger Vineyards
