Fall Wine Festival is On!
The wine awards have been handed out and as a result, visitors are now seeking out those special vintages. The wineries of the Westside Wine Trail took home several awards, including a Platinum Award for the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay from Mission Hill Family Estate.
Below are a few photos of what took place along the Wine Trail this past week. Harvest is still going strong which means when visiting, a chance meeting with a winemaker might happen as they are busy out on the crush pads right now!
It is this time of year when the bounty of the harvest is plentiful. Our local farms and chef’s gardens are brimming with produce and therefore the menus at the winery restaurants are loaded with amazing local flavours.
We now have 5 winery restaurants (some are seasonal) for one to enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner at. Menus for these restaurants can be found by visiting the websites of Little Straw Vineyards, Indigenous World Winery, Mission Hill Family Estate, Quails’ Gate Winery and Volcanic Hills Estate Winery.
Cheers and enjoy our #BCWine!
The Fall Wine Festival continues until October 9th, with winery tasting rooms and picnic areas open daily. For more information on the wineries, visit the Westside Wine Trial website.
