Flavours. Sip. Slurp. Swig.

Since  the  dawn  of  the  19th century,  throughout  the  majestic  yet  rugged  days  of  fur trading,  gold  mining and river  boating,  the desert  region  now  known  as  Kamloops  has been a hub and a hotspot for thirst quenching and hunger quelling refreshment.  Not a whole lot has changed.

Wineries

Harpers Trail Winery

Imbibing  expertly  crafted  beverages  via  local  growers,  wine  makers  and  brewers  is always an excellent choice.  You can drink practically at any time of the day, and say “SO  what  if  it’s  9am,  and  it’s  out  of  a  coffee  cup,  Susan?  This  is  a  Privato  Pinot!”Nobody in their right mind could argue. You’re supporting the local economy, and that’s just good for everybody.
