Top 10 great reasons to visit OCP this summer:
Taste and Buy – discover the distinct, terroir-focused wines in the new O Tasting Lounge.
Relax with a glass of wine on the new Crush Pad Patio.
Bring your own picnic lunch and soak up the atmosphere.
See what a 2,000 litre concrete egg shaped fermentation tank looks like.
Sample house brand wines that have been “Raised in Concrete™”.
6 Meet the friendly winery team
More than 6 wine brands and 30 different limited production, vineyard inspired wines available for purchase.
Walk through the 8 acres of Clone 52 Pinot Gris planted on the own Switchback Vineyard on a beautiful bench overlooking Okanagan Lake.
Hike up the Lookout Trail behind the winery and experience the terroir first hand.
Bring your dog – they’re dog friendly.
Wines on the not-to-miss list include the 2011 Canyonview Chardonnay ($23.00) with bright citrus aromas and flavours of orchard fruit and lime zest with a crisp chalky finish and good acidity. Also grab a couple of the new boxed wines, which completely destroy the myth that great wine only comes in bottles. There’s a Rosé ($52), White and Red (both $54); a steal for 3 litres.
