Wineries & Wine Tours

Oliver is known as the Wine Capital of Canada.
While a rapidly changing industry might cause some to dispute this title, there's no doubt that Oliver is right in the heart of the Okanagan Valley appellation with more than two dozen wineries surrounding the town.
Oliver lies in the heart of three distinct Thompson Okanagan winemaking regions. Most wineries are open year round for tasting and tours, some seasonally or by appointment. Expect to find solid table wines and wines of true distinction – reds, whites, rosés, sparkling wines and Icewines – recognized internationally with a host of awards in prestigious competitions.
Pair a vintage with specially crafted dishes at a winery restaurant or with local artisan cheeses and nibbles for an impromptu picnic on the winery grounds. The views are as good as the wines. Be sure to appoint a designated driver, learn to spit or leave the driving to a local tour guide.
