Kelowna, BC is the 'capital' of the wine country in the Okanagan Valley. The Okanagan Lake is gigantic with communities surrounding it on the hills. I'm sure we would be exclaiming of it's beauty if only we could see it. We're told that the smoke is coming from CA, OR and WA, but there are fires here in BC also. There are over 300 wineries in the region and some are architecturally stunning. Most have full restaurants with views overlooking the lake. We toured a few and had lunch at The Gray Monk Winery - really good. The picture above was taken at The Mission Hills Winery with lots of impressive outdoor art.
Entrance to the Mission Hills Winery, complete with chiming campanile and gorgeous grounds. The picture doesn't do it justice!

One of the many vineyards.
