Like so many Shuswap stories, our wines express the spectacular landscape that surrounds us. Although the Shuswap can be considered the northern tip of the Okanagan wine-growing region, our climate is cooler than the southern interior regions of BC and creates exceptional products. Each vineyard enjoys a unique microclimate, producing singular flavours that only develop right here.
With wineries of outstanding quality established throughout the Shuswap, a tasting tour is a must for visitors seeking to delight all five senses! The Shuswap’s wineries are family-run businesses that produce wines so fine they compete on par with international wines. They’ve created magnificent Gewürztraminers, Marechal Foch, Ortegas, Rieslings, Siegerrebes, to name a few, which have all won national awards.
Some wineries have a picnic area or patio, so you can bring a snack or a meal to enjoy along with the fabulous wine and stunning scenery. For a complementary experience, visit farms while you make your way around the region, and try creating your own pairings of local food, cheese and wine. I l
Keep in mind that some of the Shuswap’s unique wines are produced only in limited quantities and may not be available elsewhere, so if you find yourself swept away by a particular flavour, stock up while you’re here.
