The Similkameen Valley is — simply put — breathtaking. Skip over just one valley to the west, and you’ll arrive in a wine-producing paradise that feels worlds away. Majestic mountains soar high above, while farms, orchards, and vineyards create a green patchwork on the fertile valley floor.
Considered the “Organic Capital of Canada”, over 40% of the crops grown in the Similkameen Valley are produced organically. The terroir-driven wines of this region tend to be rich in minerality and elegantly balanced.
As with all of our tours, a picnic lunch consisting of fresh local produce, locally-cured charcuterie, artisan cheese, bread, crackers and spreads is included in the cost of the tour.
