Similkameen Valley Wine Region — Taste our terroir
Treat yourself to authentic wine experiences with the Similkameen Independent Winegrowers in this unique Wine Region.
Escape to a wine region that is small, diverse and memorable. As an official Appellation or “Area of Distinction”, the Similkameen Valley Wine Region is dotted with more than a dozen family-run boutique wineries and cideries that you will want to explore.
Learn what makes this wine region so special as you experience a wide range of award-winning wines, ciders, and tasting experiences. The members of the Similkameen Independent Winegrowers have backgrounds as diverse as the wines they craft. And while they celebrate diversity, you will see they share a common purpose – to create wines that express each vineyard and orchard while respecting the land on which it is grown. Enjoy their interesting stories and their passion in every bottle as you visit.
Take a break from the crowds and relax in our friendly tasting rooms, on our outdoor patios and in picnic areas. With a variety of tastings, from standing tastings to seated premium experiences and winemaker tours, there is something for everyone. You may catch some of the activities in the vineyards and orchards while you soak up the sun and sip the Similkameen. Extend your stay in local accommodations to enjoy our farm to table restaurants, locally grown organic foods, wines, ciders and a welcoming viticulture community.
Feel the allure of this magnificent 45 km long curved valley with its sheer mountain cliffs – cliffs that are not only breathtaking but help create unique microclimates for vines and orchards and contribute to the signature sought-after minerality that is known of Similkameen wines. Feel a sense of discovery as you stop to wind your way through our wine region. The Similkameen Independent Winegrowers Welcome you!
