GRAPES ON THE VINE

Calgary Herald New Condos - - Recreation & Investment Properties - — Barb Livingstone

Tem­per­a­tures in Osoy­oos, B.C., typ­i­cally ex­ceed 38 C in the sum­mer for short pe­ri­ods of time. Win­ters are gen­er­ally dry and mild. While still a ma­jor fruit-pro­duc­ing area, many or­chards now grow grapes for the award-win­ning reds, whites, fruit wines and icewines of the bur­geon­ing Okana­gan wine in­dus­try.

More than 20 winer­ies are lo­cated within a 20-minute drive of Osoy­oos — in town, on the Black Sage Bench and the Golden Mile, with more winer­ies to the west in the Similkameen Val­ley.
