The Lake Country wine region north of Kelowna is a treasure chest of great wines. You will find real gems at these wineries with a wide selection of quality wines.

Get Away goes to 4 wineries with no lunch stop and the option to take a morning or afternoon get away (book item 4 in 3).
The terroir is an attractive mix of clay, gravel, and limestone with steep slopes, which provides excellent drainage and the proximity to Okanagan Lake moderates the temperatures protecting the vineyards from killer frosts. Lake Country receives 2,000 hours of sunshine yet is a cool (temperature) sub-region and gets about 50 per cent more rain than the South Okanagan Valley, still a modest 300 mm a year.
The terroir and cooler temperatures produce impressive Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and other varietals. The scenery is spectacular with wonderful views overlooking Okanagan Lake and the wine from this region special and distinct.
