Penticton6704 British Columbia’s Okanagan region is well known for producing some of BC’s best wines. With over 65 wineries, the variety of wines is so diverse and includes many award winners and wine connoisseur favorites such as Hester Creek, Inniskillin, Mission Hill, Road13 and Quails Gate, just to name a few. The sun-drenched Okanagan hills are home to both world-renowned wineries and a vibrant wine community. So there is no better place than the Okanagan to host the Wine Bloggers Conference, June 6-8.

Intertwined between both blogging speakers and SEO chats, the guests will be experiencing many of BC’s amazing wines. A full flight of three days, including ice-wine tastings, an evening tasting tour to both Penticton and Oliver based wineries as well as an escape to tasting some of the Okanagan’s other wines.
