A passport event will be held by the nine wineries in conjunction with this year’s expanded Okanagan Summer Wine Festival.


“This wine trail initiative is really led by the wineries. They are directing where and what is being done, so that is really exciting. It really is their trail and vision,” commented Curtis. Frechette said 20 out of 24 area wineries are included in the new colourful Tourism Kelowna brochure promoting the wine trails. It will be available at the wineries, the airport, visitor centres, the B.C. Wine Museum, and likely hotels and restaurants as well.


Next will be a Smart Phone App that can be used instead of the brochure or in conjunction with it. “Each of our wineries offers a unique and appealing experience—no two are alike,” says Jane Hatch, general manager of Tantalus Winery. “We want to shine the spotlight on the distinct personalities of each winery and engage with visitors on a variety of levels. There are five wine trails right at your hotel doorstep, each easily enjoyed in a day with enough room to spare for leisurely winery dining and shopping along the way. It’s a wonderful surprise to find that within such close proximity to the city.


“There are vast tracts of vineyard and farm land, lake views, and an earthiness usually reserved for remote places. All these things set wine touring in Kelowna apart from other wine destinations, and we’d like to celebrate that with our visitors.” Tourism Kelowna has also produced a brochure called Kelowna Studio & Farm Tours, which includes galleries, studios, museums, artisans, markets, farms, orchards, gardens and wineries. It describes a series of self-guided tours such as in downtown Kelowna, Kelowna to Lake
