Spacious Lakeside Vacation Rentals in Wine Country, Summerland
Explore British Columbia's Premier Wine Region
Thanks to its unique location in the Thompson-Okanagan Plateau ecoregion that makes it one of the driest and warmest places in Canada, Summerland is the centre of one of the country's most productive wine areas. Before it became a wine region, Summerland was known primarily for its stone fruits. You can still taste delicious local apples, apricots, peaches, pears, and cherries from local fruit stands, as well as products made from them.
In Summerland itself, there are several boutique shops and exclusive cellars offering tastings and selling bottles from the many local wineries. To get to the source, travel on Summerland's famous Bottleneck Drive, a collection of roads connecting many acclaimed wineries. These include famed labels like Thornhaven, Sleeping Giant, Dirty Laundry, 8th Generation, Giant Head, and Heaven's Gate. Most offer tours, tastings, and adjoining restaurants.
