WINES FOR BC DAY

Thursday, July 30 from 4 to 7pm

and

Saturday, August 1 from 3 to 6pm

The BC wine industry is tiny by world standards. However, it is home to grapes and winemakers of many different origins resulting a diversity of wines not found in many much larger wine regions. The diversity is further accentuated by the multitude of microclimates in B.C. There are at least 5 in the Okanagan alone.

While there is tremendous diversity, there is also a thread that ties all BC wines together. While having similarities with quality wines from older wine regions of the world, BC wines have a distinctly BC character - Our grapes produce wines that have a natural balance of fruit and acidity.

The result is wines that pair perfectly with food!...and you can SIP the wines too.

To celebrate our quality, distinctiveness and diversity, this BC Day weekend we will pour selected wines from wineries located in the variouis wine regions of our province.

Thursday, July 30 from 4 to 7pm we will pour from:

Okanagan Centre, Lake Country - Arrowleaf Pinot Gris 2014
Ripe apple, pear, peach and delicate floral aromas. The palate shows good minerality and extract, with refreshing acidity and fruit flavour on the finish. Try it with glazed salmon, crab cakes, mild Indian curries or vegetable lasagne.

Similkameen - Eau Vivre Pinot Noir 2013
Aromas of freshly crushed cherries are followed by intense flavours of red fruit followed by spice and vanilla notes. Finishes with a long, silky texture and fesh acidity. Delicious!

Lillooet - Fort Berens Riesling 2015
A study in Lillooet's terroir, the 2014 Estate Riesling is coming into its own. Aromas of spring blossom, orange peel, and granny smith apple lead the way for a fruit bonanza. Tastes of sweet stone fruits, ambrosia apples, peaches, and pears linger long after your glass is empty. Pair with spicy dishes.
