The Scenic Sip in Lake Country, Kelowna

 

I recently toured in Kelowna, and fell in love with a special place called Lake Country- located right off Highway 97 in between Kelowna and Vernon. I love that there are only 6 wineries to visit, which means if you plan to spend all day in Lake Country, you can visit them all.

The Wineries of Lake Country:

  • Currently building a spectacular brand new winery right behind the existing tasting room
