Story

Okanagan Wine Festival Logo

Okanagan Wine Festivals Society is committed to providing authentic wine experiences to Valley locals and visitors alike. We strive to connect consumers through uniquely designed wine festivals and tasting events with over 100 member wineries across the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. 

What’s so unique about the events we produce? We are responsible for creating a wine tour under one roof, and not just any wine tour, a wine tour which at any given event may include wineries from Kamloops to Osoyoos! That’d be quite the accomplishment without our help. The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society has become the pre-eminent source for wine tastings which showcase the diversity of our entire wine region. 

Not only do we produce unique wine experiences, we bring them together. As the official producers of the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival, Winter Okanagan Wine Festival at Sun Peaks and Spring Okanagan Wine Festival, we bring together hundreds of wine themed events which allow consumers to find their perfect wine experience. From intimate dinners hosted by wine makers themselves, to the sensation of old world grape stomps, and even the grandeur of a festival within a festival.   

To further enhance our wine region and strengthen the economic impact of our wine industry, the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society has broadened its focus to include wine events beyond its iconic festivals to drive winery traffic year round. Using the same philosophy of an authentic wine experience, the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society partners with organizations to break the mould and produce tasting events which showcase wine and elevate the social and cultural landscape of our Valley. 

In all that the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society does, we strive to offer the absolute best wine experience suited to each individual consumers wants. Each day we are committed to our wine story, and with every festival and event we produce we invite you to Create Your Own Wine Story.
