Warm Up With SWR’s Winter Wine Tour Package, Until April 15
Come see how beautiful and magical a winter in Okanagan Wine Country truly is. Harvest is wrapped up and tasting rooms are quiet, making this the ideal time to be hosted by winery principals who also enjoy the slower pace of winter and are more likely to open some very special bottles.
