Oliver & Osoyoos
The south Okanagan has so much to offer. Collectively Oliver & Osoyoos the wine capital of Canada. Almost half of British Columbia’s grapes are grown in this region. With a combination of hot days and cooler nights, the landscape produces fruit with a perfect balance, and exceptional flavor's. Hot and dry conditions are a result of this being the northern most tip of the Sonora desert, this is the warmest part of Western Canada. Travelling to this part of the valley opens you up to lush orchards & vineyards. It's noticeably warmer, desertlike in some parts. The winemakers here are able to develop big reds and stunning white varieties. Your senses will be full of scenery and tastes... Truly a place to make memories.

do our best to keep you informed in the event of any changes. Some of the wineries we visit offer different experiences such as Vineyard walks, Cellar Tours and Sommelier experiences.
