40C in high summer is not unusual for Osoyoos. We lived in Penticton for several years in the 1990s [just a hop and a skip north of Osoyoos] and 35C, with ~20% humidity or less, was quite usual. Winters could run down to -25C, again with little humidity, and did so often.

Back in the early 1990s peach and cherry orchards were everywhere to be seen. Since then the fruit trees have largely gone and have been replaced with vineyards. Red and white wines from the south Okanagan valley are every bit as good as anything coming from California and Oregon !

Wouldn't BC be too cold for peaches?  Even apples and pears have difficulty 
with freezing in spring.

Southern BC can get quite warm.  They have an almost-desert there (the Osoyoos).
