The Naramata Bench is aptly named due to the west facing slopes that rise up from Okanagan Lake. Entering into more arid conditions and Canada’s only desert region, Okanagan Lake tempers the climate providing few spring frosts, long hot summer days and frost free autumn weather providing optimal ripeness for the grapes and harvest. This tour will take you along country roads, through orchards and vineyards, and into the natural beauty of desert terrain along with lush vines and fruit trees.
This Tour runs on Wednesdays.
