Summer is Here in Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country

This week, we’re focusing on sunshine as we continue to explore Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country’s unique and diverse terroir. Sunshine is an important contributing factor in the winemaking process and has a direct effect on how quickly the fruit ripens.

#WelcomeBack our Recap of Wineries that are Welcoming Visitors

Here is our ongoing list of wineries who would like you to visit. Please note that most require advance booking or reservations, some do accept drop-ins where numbers permit.

#ShiptoSip with Fairview Cellars

A boutique winery located on the Reed Creek alluvial Fan at the North end of the Benches of the Golden Mile. Fairview Cellars is the culmination of a life long quest of Bill Eggerts to own and operate his own winery. 

We Three Wine Cellars… Fairview, Lariana and vinAmité

This is a one of a kind find, a three stop shop in one, that you will not find in stores. Direct from the Winemakers, we are offering selections from our Libraries as well as wines that are “Sold Out” to the public.

We are encouraging BC wine lovers to order from their favourite wineries and help support the BC wine industry. The wineries jumped onboard and each winery has a special shipping incentive for online orders.

Tasting Ten – BC Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet sauvignon, the offspring of cabernet franc and sauvignon blanc, is often referred to as the ‘king of grapes’ and it is grown in most wine-producing areas.   It is a late ripener, so it does best in hotter climates.

This time we’re explored “Uncork the Sun” wine country of Oliver and Osoyoos. Just a few of our #FavouriteThings wineries. September is an ideal month to visit anywhere in BC Wine Country. Fewer crowds and it’s when “the grown-ups come out to play”
