This was more about the fruit industry than the current wine business, as I recall. There were samples and photos of specialized tools to pick and can fruit. Explanations were minimal but we had an enthusiastic guide (traffic was slow) who explained some of it....More

Wine and orchards are one of the mainstays of the Okanagan valley, and it's only fitting to have a museum for this industry. The place is in an old packing house - not meat packing, but fruit packing, instead - one of the few that...More
