Okanagan, also known as Okanagan Valley and at times Okanagan Country, is a valley that lies between Vancouver and Alberta in the Province of British Columbia in Canada. It is a home to orchards of peaches and apricots, and to lots of wineries.
“Boasting nearly 82 per cent of the total vineyard acreage in the province, the Okanagan Valley is BC’s premier grape-growing region. An ever-changing panorama, the valley stretches over 250 kilometers, across distinct sub-regions, each with different soil and climate conditions suited to a growing range of varietals.
From world-class operations to family-run boutique vineyards, Okanagan wineries are rich with character and consistently ranked among the worlds best at International competitions.” – Wines of British Columbia.
