The Thompson Valley

On the edge of cool climate viticulture, Thompson Valley wineries are pioneering an exciting new region and expanding the boundaries of quality BC winemaking.  Nestled amongst the natural beauty of the North and South Thompson Rivers in and around Kamloops, the rain shadow of the high coastal mountains, the semi-arid conditions and diverse microclimates provide many creative options for our winemakers to shine.
