The Heart of Wine Country™
The Okanagan Falls Winery Association brings together the valley’s premiere wineries to offer you an exceptional tour and tasting of award winning wines.
With Okanagan Falls at its heart, vineyards stretch Northwards along the East Bench of Skaha Lake and across the water to Kaleden and then South over rolling hills above Vaseux Lake.
Over tens of thousands of years a series of glaciers, up to 3 kilometres thick, carved a great valley out the of mountains that we now call the Okanagan. In places it is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The retreating ice mass left behind long benches of fertile soil and a series of spectacular lakes. Our region of the South Okanagan is a unique climatic zone known as a semi-arid steppe, the final stage of a desert area that extends up from the United States. Along with that comes long warm days and cool nights that retain the acidity in the grapes and helps shape their distinctive character and flavours.
Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country starts at McIntyre Bluff, north of Oliver, and extends right to the Canada/USA border, just south of Osoyoos.
Similkameen Independent Winegrowers, formerly the Similkameen Wineries Association, is a group of like-minded vignerons based in the Similkameen Valley bound by common values and a commitment to our land, each with a passion for creating world-class wines and ciders that express our unique wine region.
