In Getting Started
After having toured several wineries in Summerland, I dined at the waterfront resort's Local Grille and noted: "OMG, the Beef and Lentil soup is 5-star!" I paired Email Database it with Osoyoos LaRose, 2007 Les Petales: "Yum. Black pepper." Another memorable dining experience was at a restaurant perched on a hillside surrounded by vineyards. I was celebrating a happy Email Databaseoccasion and feasted on New York sirloin with local vegetables, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, and a chocolate pate for dessert. A lot of the fun of touring these wineries around the Okanagan came from simply being on site and witnessing the unique sense of style that's expressed by each vintner. Every wine shop has its own character and decor, some only hinted at by the name of the Email Database winery. Whether flapper-theme feathers, psychedelic labels, or a sword in a stone, there's no end of Email Database visual delights to enjoy. If you locals haven't visited a winery lately, you are missing out on a lot! The busy summer crowds gave way to post-Labour Day tourists and those with a palate more discerning in tastes and the time to enjoy them. Winding towards the close of the season was the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival and the announcement of the award winners. It was fun to note who won what from an insider's perspective, but I knew that my first season in wine country would be coming to a close Email Database sooner than later. A few weeks later, in the cooler fall air, with the vines stripped of their Email Database clusters, we wine shop gals enjoyed a potluck meal together, laughed at the good team we'd made and the good times we'd had and said our goodbyes.
