The Heart of Wine Country™
The Okanagan Falls Winery Association brings together the valley’s premiere wineries to offer you an exceptional tour and tasting of award winning wines.
Welcome to Okanagan Falls
With Okanagan Falls at its heart, vineyards stretch Northwards along the East Bench of Skaha Lake and across the water to Kaleden and then South over rolling hills above Vaseux Lake.
Over tens of thousands of years a series of glaciers, up to 3 kilometres thick, carved a great valley out the of mountains that we now call the Okanagan. In places it is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The retreating ice mass left behind long benches of fertile soil and a series of spectacular lakes. Our region of the South Okanagan is a unique climatic zone known as a semi-arid steppe, the final stage of a desert area that extends up from the United States. Along with that comes long warm days and cool nights that retain the acidity in the grapes and helps shape their distinctive character and flavours.
FROM SKAHA TO VASEUX LAKE
The Okanagan Falls Winery Association is a collection of 14 of British Columbia’s premier wineries. Each winery has its own unique approach to maximizing the incredible terroir of the region. The wines of the Association range from award winning bubbles to aromatic Rieslings and Gewürztraminers through to bold Syrahs and juicy Cabernet Sauvignons.
