THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
Okanagan is known worldwide for it's outstanding wines. It is almost mandatory to spend at least one weekend during the summer (we prefer fall) wine tasting with a a group of friends. It is a fun and memorable experience, as usually you would learn about the variety of grapes in the area, interesting facts about wines at each winery, lough at funny jokes.
There are so many good wineries, that we hadn't have a chance to visit all of them. However the one's we have visited, left very good impression.
Our wine tasting trip included 3 wineries located along Naramata Bench:
Township 7 winery produces great variety of white and red wines. Their wines are classic and would jazz up any party or event. I really liked that tasting fee includes 5 wines: champagne (Seven Stars Polaris), Pinot Gris, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Merlot.
My favorite wines are Merlot 2017 and Reserve 7, 2016.
Artsy winery, just next to well-known Ruby Blues. First of all you are welcomed by statue of naked Frank with a suitcase, than seduced/enchanted by a mermaid.
Well worth the visit, as Red Rooster produces a wide array of wines. Their tasting list included 5 wines where you can choose what you want to try. My most memorable moment was a dessert wine with chocolate-so good!
I liked each and every wine that I tasted at Moraine. They offer 5 wines of your choice, including dessert wine option. The tasting room is new, overlooking the lake Okanagan.
This winery is owned by Oleg and Svetlana Aristarkhov, the couple believes that wine offers one of life’s most simple, enjoyable, and accessible pleasures; and this philosophy spurred their leap into the wine industry. They relocated from Alberta, where they had lived for 15 years, to make premium Okanagan wines.
