Osoyoos


Vineyards on the far slope

Orchards by Osoyoos Lake

Farming in this area started in 1907 with the planting of cherry orchards. Since then all kinds of fruit are grown, and many kinds of grapes. Lots of immigrants came from Portugal and India, as well as from other countries. Here are a few photos of farms there in winter, taken yesterday on our exploratory drive.

We love wine, today we had a New Zealand Chardonnay called Tohu, and we like the Australian Penfolds.

Greetings,
Filip

Schöne Bilder! Der Schnee zeigt Strukturen und Muster in der Landschaft.

The light dusting of snow is very pretty - like icing sugar on cakes.
