1. Top for Tipplers – Okanagan Wine Country
Although not exactly renowned for being a wine producing country, one of the lovely summer destinations in Canada is Okanagan Wine Country. Just as pretty as the Napa Valley and Tuscany, the 100 miles area around Okanagan Lake and its valley and rolling hills is home to more than 70 vineyards, many opening their cellars for tasting. The wines are definitely worth tasting as the area produces unique grapes with highly concentrated flavors. The Lake is also a popular spot to swim, sail and fish, or just to sit by with a glass of one of your favorite wines from the day’s tasting to enjoy the view.
