Kelowna's wine trails offer a tour of the beauty and uniqueness that go into Okanagan wine.
The first vineyards of Kelowna, B.C., were planted over 150 years ago, and since then the region has built up its wine bona fides. Today there are 29 wineries, distilleries, and breweries in easy driving distance. Kelowna Tourism has created a wonderful app that splits the wineries up into five separate routes and gives information and driving directions to each.
