South Okanagan Wineries Win Big With BC Wine Awards

When you visit Osoyoos BC, one of the things you really must do is try some of the South Okanagan's excellent wines. You could spend days travelling the hillsides throughout the South Okanagan, sampling wine from local vineyards of all sizes. With so many wineries available to visit, many visitors find it helpful to turn their wine touring day into a theme.

Some will spend a day sampling larger, more well-known wineries. They may spend another day enjoying the ambience and intimate setting of some of the small, boutique, or family-run wineries. Others may spend a day visiting the wineries with the best labels. The various ways people theme-up their wine tours is endless.

For those looking to get a good sampling of the Best of South Okanagan Wineries, you will want to be sure to visit winners from the recent 2013 British Columbia Wine Awards.
