1560 Water St, Kelowna, BC V1Y 1J7, Canada
One of my favourite restaurants in Kelowna is RauDZ (pronounced "rods") and provides locally sourced ingredients for both the dinner plate and the martini glass. The dinning room is always packed and with a first come first serve policy...
1527 Ellis St, Kelowna, BC V1Y 2A7, Canada
The cold Arctic air has finally arrived in British Columbia when the Arctic’s icy fingers turn the bulbous, sued flesh of left over grapes upon the vine into cold sugar pearls. However, the cold arrived later than expected for those wineries...
3303 Boucherie Rd, Kelowna, BC V1Z 2H3, Canada
Alas! This year's Sugar Plum Fair, at the local Quail's Gate Winery, was devoid of the pirouetting snowflakes I had hoped for. Fortunately, there were ballerinas, wine, cheese and dessert. And even though I didn't get my way this year, the view...

Just a short hour drive away from Kelowna, and only a 5-10 minute drive from Penticton, Naramata sits hidden with acres of green vineyards cascading off of clay cliffs into Lake Okanagan. In the heart Naramara is the historic Naramata Heritage Inn...
940 Lower Debeck Rd, Naramata, BC V0H 1N0, Canada

4870 Chute Lake Rd, Kelowna, BC V1W 4M3, Canada
At the local Pyramid Winery the pyramid itself is as much of a character as its owners. If you saw the Cypes family you would think them to be tree planters but really they are passionate vintners producing bio-dynamic wine and winning awards for...
1670 DeHart Rd, Kelowna, BC V1W 4N6, Canada
After returning from the Wine Bloggers' Conference in Penticton just a short 45 minute drive from my home of Kelowna the first thing I wanted to write about didn't have anything to do with wine at all but honey. During the pre-conference excursion...

See Ya Later Ranch Winery, the host site for the kick-off opening reception of the Wine Bloggers' Conference, features one of the best views seen high above the Okanagan Valley, as well as vast acres of growing Gewurztraminer and champions one of...
