Travel blog calls Okanagan #1 in wine

Viator.com is a website dedicated to travel. On their site they claim to have created the world’s most comprehensive resource for travellers to plan ‘the things you do when you get there.’
Their long list of writers have toured the world many times over giving them a wealth of information to draw upon. With this background and a world wide readership, Okanagan wine makers will be pleased hear the Viator blog ranked the Okanagan Valley number one on its list of the top 10 wine destinations in the world. The Okanagan placed ahead of Bordeaux, France, Tuscany in Italy and the Napa and Sonoma region in California.
In placing the Okanagan on top Viator writes "More than 60 grape varietals are grown here, including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, as well as a variety of fruit wines."
