Tag - BC Wine

Bloom is sweeping across vineyards in Kelowna, keeping our viticulture and winemaking teams on the edge of their seats as the delicate flowering stage coincides with a sometimes temperamental late Spring/early Summer weather.

Love wine? Me, too! Here’s a local tip: wineries are always introducing new wines and some of them are exclusive, have limited numbers or sell out quickly, so you have to visit the winery to get it

Kelowna is the birthplace of BC wine (if you want to find out how it all started, watch this video), and with 40 wineries in and near Kelowna, West Kelowna and Lake Country, it’s easy to visit a number of incredible wineries to enjoy your favorite wines or try some new ones.

They say the way to someone's heart is through their stomach. Whether you are visiting Kelowna, or if you live in the area, taking your valentine to one of the cooking classes at the romantic Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna may be the perfect date night activity.  Besides… who wouldn’t want to drink wine in class?!? Sipping on Okanagan wine is a part of this lesson!

The Perfect Drink for Winter Nights in Kelowna

Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine

Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a popular North American beverage with deep European roots. Traditionally served steaming hot during Halloween and Christmas, this wintertime favourite consists of red wine, mulling spices, and often raisins. Some even chill their mulled wine and drink once cold. For me, mulled wine is best served hot and holds the spot as my favourite winter warmer because it's always favourful and comforting on chilly winter night. 

Nothing is as delicious as eating fresh, local produce so whenever possible I stop at local farms and orchards to grab my ingredients. In the winter a great one stop shop is at our Kelowna Farmers’ & Crafters' Market open Saturdays starting January 7th, 2017. Several of the needed ingredients can be picked up there.
