Have You Enjoyed Okanagan Wine?
We'd Love To Hear Your Story!
Over the years we have had some great opportunities to try some wonderful Okanagan wine, visit some unique Okanagan wineries, and even experience a wine tasting tour or two. We've enjoyed it all and we've learned a lot about wine along the way, too! :-)
When it comes to experiencing everything that the Okanagan has to offer as far as wines and wineries go, there are so many choices that we can't possibly visit every winery, or try out every wine all by ourselves!
So, if you've visited a winery here in the Okanagan, enjoyed a guided wine tour or some great touring and tasting on your own, or otherwise enjoyed the unique pleasures of Okanagan BC wines, we'd love to hear from you. :-) Skip down to add your story now.
Sharing your story is easy. Some wines and tours that we have enjoyed include visits to:
Elephant Island Winery on the Naramata Bench makes wonderful fruit wines including Black Current (to die for!), Apricot, Crab Apple and a Pear fruit wine.
You can bring your kids to this winery and though they can't hang out in the tasting room, there is a play area outside on the patio where they can play while you sit nearby and sip.
The folks are friendly, you can stay for lunch, the patio is shaded, and you may want to go home with a bottle of Framboise (seriously - is it obvious there's a sweet tooth here!).
See Ya Later Ranch is located just on the outskirts of Okanagan Falls. There's a long windy climb up to the winery itself, but once you're there this is the view of Skaha lake from the patio.
The neat thing about See Ya Later is it's history of a love for dogs. Many of their wines are named after special pets that the owners have had. And every fall they have a special event called 'Dog Days of Summer'. Visitor's can bring their dogs along to hang out in an area outside.
Silver Sage Winery near Oliver BC is one of the first wineries we visited. My personal preference is white wine over red, so this was a favorite stop for me.
They have a unique white wine - Sage Grand Reserve - a Gewurztraminer fermented with wild sage plants that I still recall the flavor.
We went home with a bottle of 'The Flame', which is an apertif wine, a late harvest Gewurztraminer, with peach/apricot fruit and a pepper. Though I gave it away as a gift, we did get to share it with the recipients.
Now it's your turn....
