Summer makes everything bright and fun. Fall makes everything dull and routine. Sound familiar?
Maybe you just haven't experienced what this "off" season has to offer in the Okanagan yet! Well, the Best Western Kelowna Hotel knows just the thing!
The weather may not be scorching hot and bikini-worthy, but sitting on a patio at a local winery in the crisp autumn sun, gazing at the beautiful vineyards bursting with grapes waiting to be harvested, doesn't sound like torture.
See? Picture yourself here...with wine in hand
Still not a fan of the fall? An incredible event which showcases amazing Okanagan wineries, culinary bliss, good company and entertainment will for sure make you reconsider... It may even make you never want to leave! (It's ok, we know the feeling!)
The Fall Okanagan Wine Festival is the only festival to take place during the heart of grape harvesting, and it's coming up soon. From September 29th - October 9th, wineries come together and offer unique event experiences for wine lovers everywhere. From informative events and seminars catering to those who want to learn more about wine , to events aimed at making you overload your senses with happiness. In addition to the abundance of Okanagan Valley Wine, you can enjoy tasting cheese, bread and culinary creations from talented award-winning chefs and eateries. And thankfully, these are Get Home Safe events, as we all know how "tasting" a lot of wine makes us better off in the back seat of a cab or bus!
Need a great hotel in Kelowna to stay at during these festivities? Make the Best Western Kelowna Hotel your home base as you explore the many wineries in and around Kelowna BC, and attend the festival events. Warning: One trip may not be enough to satisfy this passion though, so our Kelowna Hotel offers fantastic Wine Vacation Packages, all year round, for those who want more! This package includes a two night minimum stay, complimentary deluxe breakfast buffet at our on-site restaurant ORA Kelowna, full or half day Okanagan Wine Tour for two guests, tastings, and hotel pick up and return.
So put away the post-summer pout, smile big for the arrival of fall and celebrate the Okanagan Wine Country harvest season! > Check our room availability & rates for our Kelowna hotel - We look forward to seeing you!
