Oroville is located in the heart of Wine Country.
Here we have a map of the tasting rooms all within 20 minutes of Oroville. Diversity within the Okanogan Valley wine region goes well beyond variable microclimates and grape varieties. Wine styles also vary broadly throughout the valleys, as do the nationalities of their winemakers. Look for wine styles reminiscent of those found in Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Winemakers within this multi-ethnic winemaking region often pay homage to the wine styles of their homelands. We also have three active wine tasting vineyards in the oroville area: Lake Crest Winery, Esther Bricques Winery, and Okanogan Estate & Vineyards.
