The Okanagan Is The “California” of Canada

However, it does get a little cooler up here than in most parts of California, and blessedly so, hence the fabulous regional Ice Wine Festival, now known as the Winter Festival of Wine.

Dates are Jan 16-24, 2010

Have you never tasted an Ice Wine? then we advise you to do so and straightaway.  This god-like elixir is a perfect blend of sweetness and acidity and can only be described as the wine nectar of the Okanagan.

Frozen grapes for making Ice Wine, an Okanagan specialty.

Re-christened in 2010 as the Winter Wine Festival, this annual event is kicking off as we speak, with a week’s worth of tastings, seminars, lectures and more tastings!

For example, on Jan. 22nd, enjoy  Cadbury Chocolate & Heavenly Wine $40
“From light chocolate to rich dark chocolate, there is always a perfect match for chocolate and wine to satisfy your palate.”

Sun Peaks Resort is hosting this year and event is generously being promoted by Okanagan Wine Festivals.

Enjoy a wonderful marriage of culinary events, wine tastings, educational seminars, and some of the best skiing and snowboarding anywhere in the world.
