The hills will soon be alive with the sounds of clinking wine glasses and the sights of blossoming vines, so it’s only natural that hotels in Kelowna expect to welcome an influx of wine enthusiasts from all over BC. We’ve got our corkscrews ready!
The Spring Okanagan Wine Festival is coming up soon and this 10 day event is an amazing opportunity for wine lovers everywhere to see what the Okanagan has to offer this year. From May 2-12th 2013, you can spend a day, a weekend or the whole week indulging in tasty wine, delicious food and fabulous culture. Basically, it’s a party in the valley and you’re invited! Whether you just like the occasional glass of wine here and there, or you live/drink/breathe all things wine, this festival has events for everyone.

So now that we’ve enticed you (and possibly made you open a bottle of wine), you will need to book a hotel in Kelowna to use as your home base in between the plethora of events around the city! The Best Western Kelowna Hotel not only offers premium guest rooms and amenities, but we’ve recently replaced all our bed sets with super duper extra comfy ones (pillow top – need we say more?) so you’ll be guaranteed to sleep like a baby after all the celebrating. Get fueled up with a complimentary hot breakfast before you head out for the day and then enjoy a glass of your fave BC Wine on your own private patio or balcony before you retire for the night. FYI: You can also get wined & dined at our onsite ORA Kitchen & Bar, with their great selection of BC wine and fresh locally-inspired menu. And finally, since our Kelowna hotel is centrally located, a short taxi or bus ride allows our guests and wine enthusiasts to easily take advantage of the Get Home Safe program and leave the car keys safely behind in their hotel room.
Now don’t fret if you can’t make it to the Okanagan during the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival this year - our Kelowna hotel Wine Packages are available all year round! The wineries are still buzzing with activity and you’ll get to enjoy premium accommodations, hot breakfast buffet daily, full or half day wine tour for two guests, tastings, and hotel pick up and return. It would be like your own personal little festival.
Mark your calendar, book your stay at our Kelowna hotel and get your palette ready to be amazed! Just make sure to leave room in your suitcase to take home some bottles of BC Wine. Cheers!
