Local Lovelies – Wine
I’m not exactly what one would call a wine connoisseur, but I do know what I like. I was introduced to this wine (Ehrenfelser) by my good friend Carla, who showed up on my doorstep with a bottle in hand one day, and it’s been one of my absolute favorites ever since. It’s fruity and flavourful without being sweet.
When my brother got married several years ago, they took the family to the Okanagan (a part of BC several hours from Vancouver where most of our fruit is grown) for a tour of the local wineries. I was thrilled to find out that Summerhill, the maker of this wine, was on the agenda. You can read more on the link, but they are Canada’s largest certified organic winery, and they have a large pyramid that they age their wine in. I don’t know a lot about pyramids and their effect on wine, but I can tell you that they’re doing something right, because they make the best wine I’ve ever tasted. They also have an incredible restaurant. If you’re ever in Kelowna, I would definitely recommend that you stop in.
My other favorite wine is their Baco Noir. It’s so delicious that it’s almost impossible to get your hands on, because it’s always sold out.
I hear that this year’s wines will be especially good, because of all the hot dry weather we had this summer.
Mmm…I can’t wait!
