Lake Country Officially Recognized As A Wine Region
July 16, 2022
Lake Country is one of six new areas in the Okanagan Valley to be recognized as a new sub-geographical indication (sub-GI). This protected term under B.C. law is used to help consumers identify B.C. wines’ origins with a minimum of 95% of grapes grown from the specified region. Defining geographic zones on wine labels connects consumers with the unique geographic area where the grapes are grown and the wine is made.
The six areas being recognized are Lake Country, East Kelowna Slopes, South Kelowna Slopes, Summerland Bench, Summerland Lakefront, and Summerland Valleys. Each sub-GI has clearly defined boundaries separating areas with diverse soil types and climatic conditions.
