Adult Juice

I really do enjoy a good glass of vino. I like to think I am a connoisseur – but probably not the case. I have an okay selection of red, white, and bubbley at home – all in which are local and a decent price point.

Best Rose

Joie Farm

Located on BC’s Naramata Bench – I have yet to go here, but from what I have been told its a great spot – bring a blanket, buy a bottle, order some fire oven pizza and enjoy.  Also their white Noble Blend – hands down my fave white, my go to always.

Re Think Pink

Not too sweet, notes of cherry, cranberry & citurs. Great chilled for an afternoon with the ladies (or solo for that matter) on the patio soaking up some sun

Best Bubbles

Stoneboat

Located in Oliver BC, super cute, quaint spot. I also love their Piontage – often hard to find though, one of my favourites!

Piano Brut 

Not too dry, not too sweet, and not too carbonated. I recently fell in love with bubbles – odd because I still do not love carbonated drinks – and hated them as a kid. Great bottle to bring to friends for brunch or even an afternoon BBQ

Best Label

Lost Inhibitions By Church & State

Another Oliver winery – need I say more, you can find these labels at most local wine or liquor stores. Awesome marketing, makes a great gift. Red or White blend – both are pretty decent – the label makes it for sure

 

Best Splurge 

Blackhills 

Another amazing local winery in Oliver – great spot to sit on the patio near their pool nestled beside the vineyard. A fabulous spot to stop for a bite to eat while you are touring – best flat bread I have ever had (and that was not just because I tasted 7 different wines there)IMG_7362

Syrah 

A M A Z I N G – no other words to describe. If you really want to be a high roller spend a few extra bucks and go for a bottle of the Nota Bene – great for any very special occasion or maybe just a treat.

 

Best Summer Patio Sipper

Liquidity

This winery again is in Oliver, at the top of OK Falls over looking Skaha lake – absolutely beautiful.

White Blend

Smooth and citrusy, perfect for sipping chilled paired with some vitamin D – would be great for a white sangria too!

 

 

 

Best Very Local Winery 

Backyard Vineyards

I cannot get enough of this place, it is a 15 min drive to South Langley from my place, it is an amazing way to spend an afternoon. The staff are great while you are doing a tasting, awesome for first time tasters. You can purchase a bottle, as well as some snacks and sit out at the picnic tables sipping on your drink of choice basking in the sun. I became a member here, probably after a few glasses of wine – but the perks are great and I really love their wine, great price point and literally down the road. I love sipping their bubbles with the gals when we visit, the red blend “Gossip” is also fabulous paired with a nice meal or alone. I do not think I tasted a wine I did not like there so far! Check them out.
