THE SHOW 

 

Here’s what I know…

 

Similkameen Valley
Similkameen Valley

 

The Similkameen is that spectacular valley in and around Keremeos and Cawston in Southern BC.

 

Many MANY wine fans drive right through on their way to Osoyoos and the rest of the Okanagan.

Albertans also do the same heading for the Coast.

The Point I’m trying to make is ..the wines out of this valley are some of the best anywhere in Canada.

The next time you’re driving through Manning Park and then the Similkameen, take a half day and check out the wineries, cideries and fruit crafters below.

How good is the region?

There are a lot of BC wineries that would LOVE to get their hands on the fruit from the Similkameen.  It’s that good.
