Beautiful Vistas & Wines Part 2

Another mention from Gismondi! 91 points for our soon-to-be released Pinot Noir 2018...

Continuing our series of videos on touring the Okanagan, part two sees Anthony Gismondi and DJ Kearney cover the Naramata Bench just north of the town of Penticton, then Summerland, the town most people just drive through on their way to other regions, West Kelowna, East Kelowna and then north to Lake Country, located between Kelowna Airport and Vernon.

Anthony and DJ mention wines they suggest tasting and we've included other wines below which we feel are worth a taste or a place in the trunk of your car. Coming soon, Anthony and Treve Ring shift the focus to "BC's Unique Wines" for those of you who want an adventure off the beaten path. Click here to read the full story.
