The Heart Of Wine Country
Discover the Stories, Savour the Quality
Take Eastside Road or Highway 97 from Penticton for a short drive to the Heart of Wine Countrytm. The 15 wineries of the Okanagan Falls l Skaha Lake Winery Association boast stunning views of this beautiful area. Many of the most iconic images of the Okanagan come from here.
Over tens of thousands of years ago, a series of glaciers, formed this valley we call the Okanagan. The glaciers left behind long benches of fertile soil in their wake, along with sparkling lakes. This fertile soil and the lakes contribute to growing world-class grapes.
We are the first region to have 2 different official sub-Geographic Indexes (sub-GI’s) created. These sub-GI’s indicate that there are defined areas with significant geographical distinctions. What does that mean to you? It means that the grapes grown here are influenced by the soil in ways that no other region is. It means that the wine made here is unique and world-class. Don’t take our word for it, look at the awards! Or better yet, come visit our wineries and our bistros. Our website: www.theheartofwinecountry.ca has up-to-date information on hours and reservation details.Back
