The city of Penticton in British Columbia is uniquely located between two lakes – Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake. With agriculture being an essential contributor to Penticton’s economy, there are plenty of distilleries, breweries and wineries accessible from the downtown core. This time of the year is prime harvest season for grapes. Wineries in this region offer tours proving a closer look at the wine-making process along with samples of some award-winning wines.
