Wines of the Okanagan

Northern Okanagan/ Shuswap

Baccata Ridge Winery - Grindrod, BC
Baccata Ridge Winery - Grindrod, BC

This region covers the area from the Lake Country to Salmon Arm, Tappin and the surrounding area. The sensative microclimates combined with the hard work of the winemaker are so very important. The vineyards are planted on slopes that provide the much needed sunlight and frost free days.
Wineries like Larch Hills and Recline Ridge have proven it can be done.

Larch Hills winery which sits on the top of the hill, at 700 meters is the highest elevated vineyard in British Columbia. The winery won the Peoples Choice award at the Okanagan Wine Festival for it's Ortega in back-to-back years. The winery was originally owned by Hans and Hazel Nevrkla. Hans retired as a winemaker but has returned to the field as a consultant.

The Vernon wineries may not be considered as northern they are 46 Km north of Kelowna and 60 Km south of Salmon Arm. In time the Vernon wineries,The Rise, may have their own region. It's a growing community. Vernon is located at the Northern end of Okanagan Lake
