Fall Wine Festival in the Okanagan is the perfect time to discover new wines from some of the Okanagan’s best wineries.
Fall Wine Festival runs Oct. 1 – 11 throughout the Okanagan. The Fall Okanagan Wine Festival, now in its 35th year, is the premier event produced by the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society. The timing is perfect. The event takes place during grape harvest which gives attendees great access to have a sneak peek at what is involved in creating wine.
In advance of the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, Jane Hoffman Group is sharing some of our favourite Okanagan wines. Deciding just one Okanagan wine was a difficult task. After all, we live in wine country and enjoy the variety of wine and wineries available at our doorstep.
4 Okanagan Wines You Should Try This Fall
Kristi Recommends: 2012 Cabernet Franc from Burrowing Owl. It goes great with tomato/meat based Italian dishes.
Carole Recommends: Dead of Night by Moon Curser Winery in Osoyoos. It’s a generous red with hints of dark cherry, prune plums and violets. It’s great to sip alone or with a meal.
Sherry Recommends: Quail’s Gate Old Vine Foch. Try pairing with a delicious piece of black forest cake.
Tracy Recommends: Quail’s Gate Chenin Blanc. It goes with everything. It’s best enjoyed on a patio or a blanket in the vineyards.
