See Why USA Today Named the Okanagan Valley One Of The Best Wine Regions In The World

At Okanagan Wine Festivals, we are more than intimate with the lush landscapes that produce the delicious wines of the Okanagan Valley. Now, readers of the most widely circulated publication in the United States, USA Today, know what we knew all along. The Okanagan Valley is among the best wine regions in the world.

USA Today recently held their “10 Best” awards, and the Okanagan Valley took second place in the Reader’s Choice for “Best Wine Region to Visit”. Given the relative youth of the Okanagan wine region, as compared to established European regions, this latest accolade is yet another testament to our local vineyards, winemakers, wineries, and the hospitality industries that help support them.

Following the splendid news, Shaw TV’s Doug Brown took a trip through the Okanagan Wine Region and you can get a glimpse of the breathtaking landscape, and some of the wine region's characters, in the video below.
