A tour of the Okanagan Valley’s cooler climate wineries located in Lake Country.
At the family owned and operated Ancient Hill Winery the wines are made entirely from grapes grown in their own vineyard and processed on-site in their European style winery. Guests always enjoy Intrigue Wines, where they wonder what is it about wine that captivates us, keeps us coming back for more and still interests us after all these years? Set in the heart of Okanagan Wine Country in British Columbia, Canada, 50th Parallel Estate Wineryis a majestic 61 acre site near the shores of Lake Okanagan. Savour seasonally inspired culinary creations at theBlock One Restaurantat 50th Parallel. We also stop at the delightful family owned Arrowleaf Cellars to taste their clean, crisp, cool climate whites and barrel aged reds and learn how the Okanagan “terroir” creates superb vintages.
