The Best Time of year to visit a Kelowna Winery?
June through August are considered the peak tourism season for wineries in Kelowna and West Kelowna, so if you’re planning to visit during this time, it’s recommended to book your guided tours well in advance. During this time, many visitors flock to the area to take advantage of the warm weather and sample the wines while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
However, September is also a great time to visit as it’s usually quieter than July and August, but still warm enough to enjoy wine outdoors at the vineyards. The weather is mild, and you’ll have the opportunity to explore the wineries and vineyards without the crowds. Additionally, September is also harvest season, which means you’ll have the opportunity to see the grapes being picked, pressed, and turned into wine.
It’s also worth noting that the Okanagan region is well known for its agrotourism, and the area is home to many fruit orchards as well as wineries. Therefore, September is a great time to visit not only for the wine but also to enjoy the beautiful fruits that the Okanagan is known for.
In conclusion, June through August are peak tourism season for wineries in Kelowna and West Kelowna, but September is also a great time to visit. It’s quieter, still warm and you’ll have the opportunity to witness the grape harvest. And, you can enjoy agrotourism in the area as well.
