Wineries & Wine Tours
Grapes on a vine (Andrea Johnson photo)
With more than 120 wineries, the Thompson Okanagan is British Columbia's oldest, largest, and most popular wine-producing region.
By car or bike, take a self-guided or guided wine tour to discover complex Pinot Noirs, vibrant Chardonnays and sweet Icewines at wineries perched above glittering lakes.
There are many award-winning wines in the Thompson Okanagan. In 2013, Mission Hill Family Estate Winery won an esteemed International Trophy – the competition's top prize – for the "World's Best Pinot Noir" award at the Decanter World Wine Awards. But that's not all: in 2010, Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, and CedarCreek Estate Winery all won gold medals at international competitions.
Wineries range from large, luxurious facilities to small family-run vineyards. Tour magnificent estates such as Mission Hill Family Estate Winery, or enjoy intimate tastings at boutique wineries like Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery. Annual wine festivals celebrate regional vintages.
Combine wine touring with the Okanagan’s laid-back lifestyle. Go golfing at Nk'mip. Try a winery cycling tour. Or dine at winery restaurants, such as Quails' Gate Old Vines Restaurant, and savour dishes with ingredients from the Okanagan Valley or BC’s coast.
