My second day in Canada consisted of some serious wine tasting. Dannica’s husband, Mike, sacrificed a whole day to driving us from one winery to another, as we enjoyed some of the Okanagan’s finest.
The breathtaking view from Liquidity Winery:
Next stop, Blue Mountain Vineyard:
Our favorite tasting “experience” of the day was at Meyer Family Vineyard. We sat out on the patio, while the pourers came to us. We were able to ask as many questions as we wanted, and the staff were super knowledgable and a lot of fun. Here’s a view of part of the vineyard:
The most unusual selection of wine was at Silver Sage Winery, where, among other flavors, we found The Flame – a late harvest Gewürztraminer with a spicy hot pepper in the bottle.
Many of the vineyards we visited had vines heavy with plump, beautiful grapes. These are a sample from Quinta Ferreira Estate Winery:
The final winery we visited was Kraze Legz Vineyard and Winery. It was a 20’s Speakeasy-themed tasting room, and they provided fun props for photo-ops. My poker face is vastly superior to Dannica’s….
We also visited Le Vieux Pin and Blasted Church Vineyards during our tour, but I failed to get pictures. We loved all but one of the wineries (no, I’m not saying which one), and I can’t wait until Dannica and I get to go again. At the end of the day, we had a very impressive haul:
Thanks again, Mike, for your fantastic driving skills, and for putting up with us dummies all day. 🙂
