Okanagan again

We just got back today from another 4 days at Sue and Phil's. We also spent one day in Osoyoos with my folks, my sister, and some of Mom and Dad's friends that are vacationing there this week.

Yesterday we went wine touring between Summerland and Westbank. We got a few bottles to stock up our new wine rack. Our wine stops included Sumac Ridge and Sonoran Estate in Summerland, Hainle/Deep Creek in Peachland, and Quail's Gate and Mission Hill ( where we had delicious gourmet lunch at the Terrace Restaurant) in Westbank.

Mission Hill has spent a ton of money recently fixing up the place. The web site is worth a look just for the pictures alone.

Glad you had a good trip and got in a couple of tours. OK wine is so lovely.
 
Dan and I went to Mission Hill when we were in the Okanagan. I have to agree with you that it's a fabulous place! We just did the one hour tour but it was quite informative. We brought a couple of bottles home with us (a Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir). The Blanc we tasted there and it was great. The Noir we've since tried and it's delicious, too!
 
Wow, look beautiful! Glad you are back... i missed ya!
 
Thanks for those links. I was going to search for some sites to see around there this week - I'm shipping my parents out to visit my aunt/uncle in Chilliwack later this summer :) Wineries of BC were definitely on the list !
