THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
This is going to be a series of five posts dedicated to the most popular activities in the Okanagan. It is summer time and most people are thinking about vacation or stay-cation. Okanagan valley has something interesting to offer to various groups: families with children, adults, youth.
Activity #1 Wine Tasting
I am suggesting leaving young children home under grandparents supervision before you decide to visit wineries. Although some wineries offer apple juice tasting for younger crowd, most of them are adult oriented. Hop into the car or book a tour car and head towards Oliver, BC on HWY 97 Okanagan.
Just past Oliver watch for wineries signs, turn left.
Target#1 Oliver Twist Estate Winery www.olivertwistwinery.com
theThey are open daily from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. There are 16 wines to choose from. Especially good is Nostalgia series, but that really depends on your preferences. They charge $5 fee for tasting which is waived with the wine purchase.
Let me know which wine turn out to be your favorite!
Target #2 Silver Sage Winery www.silversagewinery.ca
This is an amazing place for everyone who loves wine. If you never been wine-tasting before, this place will sweep you off your feet! The tasting is free and a fun presentation of 5 to 6 wines. Listen carefully to your wine connoisseur, you might use his suggestions later at home. Truly unforgettable experience!
