Travelling deeper into British Columbia and now relaxing lakeside in the Okanagan Valley, Canada’s second largest wine producing region! . Wine production in the Okanagan dates to the 1850s, with the establishment of Okanagan Mission and the planting of grapevines to supply sacramental wines. In the early 20th century, prohibition in Canada wiped out many of the Okanagan's earliest wineries and the commercial wine industry in the area was not revived until the 1930s. From this time through the mid-1970s, the Okanagan wine industry was based entirely on the production of fruit wines and those produced from hybrid grapes 🍇 . The first vineyard planted in the Okanagan was at the Oblate Mission in Kelowna in 1859, planted by French Catholic priest Charles Pandosy and was solely intended for the production of sacramental wine for the celebration of the Eucharist. . We are staying at a beautiful lakeside property called @covelakesideresort and we are lucky our room faces straight out onto the lake! . #exploreBC #ExploreKelowna #ThompsonOkanagan . @hellobc @tourismkelowna @thompson_okanagan
