“What is your favourite winery?”
That is the #1 question I get almost daily doing what I do, touring around our BC’s wineries. Now, the question is loaded and I never usually answer it directly. Because, it simply depends on so many other factors. Who am I with? How many people are in my group? What experience am I looking for? Do I want to eat at the winery? Am I feeling like bubbles? What time of year is it? What time of day is it? Do I want to sit down? Do I want to learn about wine? Do I want to have fun? Do I want a unique experience? All of these questions help shape each winery I visit and which wineries I recommend to others.
I have been to over 120 BC Wineries in the last few years tasting and touring and have a pretty good sense of which ones to recommend to others. This summer, I am going to count down my top 5 wineries in the Okanagan, region by region. Osoyoos, Oliver, OK Falls, Penticton, Naramata, Summerland, Kelowna and Lake Country. I hope this will help you as you plan your vacation to BC’s Wine Country and that you get to experience the best we have to offer!
In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like other recommendations, please reach out to me!
