A popular summer vacation idea is a tour of the delightful Osoyoos area wineries, but this excursion isn't just for the warm-weather seasons. Visitors can take part in tours and other events any time of the year. For example, Winter in Wine Country takes place Nov. 22 at the Hester Creek Estate Winery in Oliver, which is only a short drive from the stunning accommodations of the Walnut Beach Resort.
Winter in Wine Country features specialty tastings of the winemakers' favorite vinos made from grapes grown right there on the 95-acre estate. While you're here, be sure to take in the beautiful surrounding – along with a lush vineyard, Hester Creek will feature sparkling Christmas light displays and other seasonal decor to get you in the holiday spirit. There will also be unique gifts for guests.
The event is part of the Oliver Tourism Association's Rose Revolution Tasting & Global Tweet Up, which celebrates and spreads word of the local rose varietals. Visitors who stay at the ideally-located Walnut Beach Resort can enjoy easy access to the Hester Creek Estate Winery as well as other Rose Revolution events.
