Okanagan Wine Country vineyards produce fine wines, which are celebrated each year at this exciting summer festival.

This year’s 11th annual Summer Okanagan Wine Festival, which runs from July 6 through 15, 2012, is heating up, so now is the time to plan your tour of the Okanagan Wine Country vineyards and sample the world class wines from this scenic region of British Columbia.

Over 100 wineries in the region participate in this festival, which combines their distinct wines & locations (along with other venues) with a variety of events, which include:

  • Tastings
  • Pairings (everything from cheese & tapas to BBQ & elegant dinners)
  • Eclectic Music Performances and Art Displays
  • Mixology Competition
  • Seminars
  • and much more!

The Okanagan Valley is BC’s oldest and most prolific producer of wine grapes.  Since 2001, it has also been home to this festival, a worthy celebration of the best wines of British Columbia.
