Kelowna Wine and Cuisine This celebration of Okanagan Wines is considered one of the best small festivals in BC.

The 2013 Spring Okanagan Wine Festival runs from May 2-12 at over 100 wineries and vineyards, plus other venues located throughout the Central Okanagan and surrounding area of British Columbia.

Mid-spring is a wonderful time to visit BC’s Central Okanagan wine region.  The Okanagan vineyards grapes are in bud break and the wineries open their doors to welcome you to explore the season’s new debutante wines, sample gourmet local foods, enjoy their gracious hospitality and take pleasure in a wide variety of entertainment.

Wine tastings and pairings are the primary draw of this annual festival, but there is also plenty of music, art and other events to enjoy.  The Spring Okanagan Wine Festival is the annual home of the Best of Varietals Competition among BC wines.  Challenge your taste buds at the blind taste testing of wine and cheese.

Attendance of this festival is expected to be very high, so now is the time to make your plans for travel and accommodations.  We recommend you pair your Spring Okanagan Wine Festival with the luxuriant and individualized Central Okanagan lodging of our member bed & breakfast inns. (more…)
