Penticton Granfondo Wine Tasting

Many of us at the winery are avid cyclists, so we know that the riding here in the Okanagan is spectacular. We have fantastic trails for mountain biking looking out over the vineyards and lakes, and our farm country roads provide a relatively traffic free ride through our stunning wine country.

The Axel Merckx Granfondo, hosted by Axel Merckx — professional road cyclist and son of the legendary Eddy Merckx — has quickly become one of the Okanagan's premier cycling events, and actually cruises right by our winery on Oliver Ranch Road. The rolling hill section of the course will take you past us, and some of the other OK Falls wineries like Stag's Hollow Winery, and Noble Ridge Winery, with stunning views of Vaseux Lake and MacIntrye Bluffs in the distance.

We're happy to share this amazing scenery with our fellow road riders, and hope everyone has a fantastic ride. Of course, one of the best post-ride ways to celebrate the accomplishment is to spend an extra day in the valley wine tasting, so if you're riding in the Penticton Granfondo, have an excellent ride, and feel free to stop by the winery the next day for a complimentary tasting. We'd love to hear your stories from the road, and we'd  be happy to point you in the direction of some other fantastic Okanagan wineries that you may have passed in a hurry the day before on your bike!

Happy spinning from the Blue Mountain team!
