Okanagan Valley Named Among Best Wine Regions To Visit IN THE WORLD


If this isn't cause for a nice big glass of delicious wine, we're not sure what is.

B.C.'s glorious Okanagan Valley has been named the world's second best wine region to visit by readers of USA Today and travel and lifestyle website 10Best.

Wine expert Kerry Woolard describes the region famous for its white and ice wines as "drop dead gorgeous," says the site.

"Tucked between two mountain ranges, about a four drive from Vancouver, Okanagan Valley enjoys a rural character, dramatic vistas and abundant outdoor adventures to occupy the time between tastings."

Alentejo, Portugal took the top spot, with Maipo, Chile rounding out the top three. See the full list here.

Cheers, everybody!
