Kamloops is home to the Thompson Valley Wine region and the Kamloops Wine Trail. It features four incredible wineries—Privato Vineyard & Winery, Harper’s Trail Winery, Monte Creek Winery and Sagewood—with a combined 125 acres under vine.
Situated just a little ‘north of normal’ the Thompson Valley GI is producing some spectacular wines north of the 50th parallel. “This is winemaking on the edge,” White says. “We are successfully challenging and pushing the boundaries for premium grape production. Growing wine in extraordinary places is making for some pretty special wines, including the region’s signature vinifera varieties, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay.”
Its also home to five mouth-watering craft breweries: Bright Eye Brewing, The Noble Pig Brewhouse, Red Collar Brewing, Alchemy Brewing and Iron Road Brewing.
