It’s no secret that the Okanagan valley is home to some of the country’s best vineyards and wineries. Because the region is divided into seven different areas each with a different climate and soil types, the valley is the perfect destination for wine lovers of all kinds. Kelowna wine, amongst the others, is something that needs to be experienced in person, and not just picked up on a shelf at your local liquor store.
Here are five reasons why you need to plan a wine-tasting vacation complete with Okanagan wine tours soon:
Sure, it’s easy enough to scan the shelves at your local wine store looking for wines produced in the Okanagan valley, but that bottled taste will never be as good as visiting the winery in person on a beautiful Okanagan day. The actual experience of tasting wine where it was created makes the wine taste that much better. Do yourself a favour, and expand your wine knowledge with a wine tour through the Okanagan valley on your next vacation.
When you come to the Okanagan for wine tasting, be sure to book your accommodations at a hotel that loves wine tours as much as you do. Search for hotels with wine tour packages and comprehensive knowledge on the best wineries in the area while providing guests with all the comforts of home (plus a little extra).
When you find a wine you love at a local Kelowna winery, you may want to stock up on a few bottles or even a case. The price you find at the winery will easily rival the prices of the bottles back at home, and that’s IF you can even find one. Not many local wines find themselves on shelves outside of the region.
Slip into as many vineyards as you can while staying at Kelowna hotels. Meet with winemakers, wander through the vines, and ask a lot of questions. There is no better source for quality information than at a vineyard itself.
When you get home for your Okanagan adventure, impress your friends and family with your expansive knowledge on the winemaking process. Play the role of a Sommelier and pass along food pairing suggestions, tips of the trade, and share your touring stories and memories.
