Okanagan II: Celebrating the Terroir of the Canadian Wine & Culinary Region
This premium hardcover is a second edition to Okanagan I, a showcase of the Okanagan's premium wineries through landscape photographs of vineyards and vistas, paired with portraits of the people and activities captured from the cellar to the tasting room and beyond. This second edition continues as a revelation of passion and beauty in this young Canadian wine region with a new expanded focus on the culinary experiences and bounty of the Okanagan, complete with a locally focused recipe section.
While it's a stunning coffee table book full of rich imagery, it's a useful tool for the armchair traveler as well. Explore the region from North to South Okanagan including the Similkameen Valley, discovering the passion and focus of each winery, cidery, brewery and culinary experience. Key wines, styles and philosophies from vineyard to cellar help identify the little-known and "best of" highlights of each winery. Culinary experiences are highlighted for their quality, uniqueness and commitment to expressing the Okanagan Terroir.
Included here is a portrait of the area through the seasons, as well as its history and profiles of five innovators that have helped shape the wine industry.
