The South Okanagan is not only a perfect place to craft world class wines; it is also a vibrant holiday destination and unique environmental specimen.

The unique eco-system of the Osoyoos desert for starters is a great place to start your exploration of this summer paradise. If the heat starts to become too much then perhaps a dip in Canada’s warmest freshwater lake, Lake Osoyoos, is just the ticket. Lake Osoyoos buzzes all summer long with swimmers, boaters and water skiers.

Accomodations in Osoyoos are world class too with several large scale resorts and spas. And if golf is your thing there are two golf courses in town and several more nearby.

In the winter, it’s skiing that brings the crowds with Apex in Penticton and Mt. Baldy in Oliver itself!

Of course over the past few years it’s the wineries that have generated the most excitement and Black Sage Bench is undoubtedly one of the stars of the region. Le Vieux Pin finds itself among the most revered wineries in the entire valley with its prime location just outside Oliver.

We hope to see you in the valley soon, be it summer, or winter. And if you are making a trip up, make sure to stop by and say hi!
