So our management group is going to go to Kelowna for a business plan meeting away from the office and anything that remotely sounds like a phone ringing. As part of the excursion, we will take the entire group to a couple wineries - it will be an early October trip, but I am excited as I like drinking wine in cooler weather - haven't tried any of the Canadian wines yet as I usually stick to Californian, Australian or German wines. Have bus complete with driver, will try and post some feedback upon return.

Some the top choices, and there many to choose from... would be Cedar Creek (Platinum Series Reds), Mission Hill [the Mondavi of the North] (Oculus, Compendium, Quatrain and Perpetua Chardonnay), Quail's Gate (Stewart Family Pinot Noir and their Gewurtztraminer), Sperling ('Old Vines' Riesling) and Mt. Boucherie (Melange Noir, Riesling and Gewurtztraminer). It's an hour drive down to Penticton, but the Naramata Bench there offers some truly outstanding wines and is definitely worth the trip. There are a lot of other ones around and will deliver a world of sensory difference than you are used to.
