Kelowna is the perfect place if you want to learn more about wine culture and the history of winemaking in the Okanagan Valley. Possessing over 80% of the province’s vineyard ground, it is the premier wine region of British Columbia and perfect for booking one of our Kelowna Wine Tours.
Kelowna is the birthplace of the BC wine industry, and it owns a rich historical perspective on winemaking, having its first grape being planted in 1859 by Father Charles Pandosy. Fast forward, 160 years after, a region is blooming with smaller and bigger wineries, emerging to conquer the local and international market. And with much success.
On a world scale, this is the mecca for ice wines, sparkling wines, Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot Gris, and Riesling. Maybe you wonder how this area became the BC’s leading grape-growing region. The answer lies in the proper and solid foundation as long before wines, the place was famous for its agricultural activities. After growing fruits, making wine seemed like a logical choice.
