Nk'Mip Cellars

One of the coolest things about our trip to Osoyoos was checking out all things that had to do with the Indian/Native band Nk'Mip (pronounced Ink-a-meep). Our first stop upon entering Osoyoos was visiting the wine cellar for a great tour. It was quite hot that day, about 30C or a bit hotter so it was well worth going into the cellars.

So here are a few images from this tour.

This first photo is the Symbol seen right outside the Nk'Mip Entrance.

The Nk'Mip believe the turtle is the symbol of perseverance and longevity. It's plastered everywhere. Even the wine cork has a the turtle on it.

P walking into the cellars for the wine tour.

One more from inside the wine shop.

Just one more post to go which was a visit to the Outdoor Cultural Center.
