The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Ditch Napa for the Okanagan Valley


4. Insider’s Tip

Carmelis doesn't require visitors to make appointments to sample their cheeses.  

Though there are a number of small food producers in the region, the best one to visit on a whim is Carmeli’s Goat Cheese Artisan. Tours are available for groups of eight or more, but smaller groups and solo travelers can visit without arranging anything in advance to see the farm and taste unlimited samples. Afterward, you can bring a pint of their goat-milk gelato to nearby Bertram Park, a low-key lakefront oasis with secluded beaches and towering pines.
