Oliver, BC - Canada's Wine Capital
Oliver BC, is home to a very large varietal of grapes and we are eager to showcase them throughout the Festival! Our terrior supports the roots of more than half of all the wine grapes for British Columbia – the equivalent of more than 12 million bottles!
Sample 100’s of Wines!
Festival attendees can sample some of the hundreds of wines from wineries in Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association and around BC.
We want everyone to have an enjoyable time at the Festival so tasting samples are one ounce and there are wine police and security on hand to ensure the safety of all attendees.
As you sample, you will have the opportunity to meet winemakers and winery owners who are excited to share their offerings and tell you about the unique features of their wines. They’ll also share with you why on your next visit to wine country you’ll want to include their winery.
