Four Spectacular Okanagan Patios To Get Your Sparkle On
Which libation is synonymous with celebration, happiness and love? You got it – it’s bubbles baby! And luckily, the BC wine world has corks flying as more and more of our wineries have chosen to get their sparkle on. Lunching with bubbles is one of my favorite ways to celebrate life and what pairs best with BC sparkling wine? A patio!
Here are four fabulous places to get your sparkle on while you dine al fresco:
1. Summerhill Pyramid Winery is definitely a destination for those who love bubb and for those who support and celebrate sustainable land stewardship. The Cipes family has been producing award winning organic sparkling wines and a range of other organic wines to enjoy on their lake viewed Sunset Organic Bistro with, you guessed it, delicious organic food.
2. Fancy a little sparkle by the lake? Escape to Greata Ranch and Fitzpatrick Vineyards in Peachland to enjoy their sought after traditionally made bubbly. The Bistro has a beautiful patio to soak up views of our big beautiful Okanagan Lake.
3. Dining at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery’s gorgeous Terrace Restaurant feels like a celebration itself so adding a bottle of their new sparkling Exhilaration Brut is tres apropos. This is the place for a long luxurious lunch so do linger.
4. Indigenous Winery has a sparkling rosé named L’ap Cheet that is wonderful to enjoy on the patio with the ‘modern native’ cuisine served at in house restaurant the Red Fox Club. Bannock and bubbly!
