A Season of Wine

October 30, 2013 at 11:42 PM

There is a distinct chill in the air now, with the fall season in full swing and the wine industry throughout the Okanagan is slowly winding down. Harvest has been completed for most Okanagan wineries and the task of caring for and cultivating award-winning wines has begun. 

Though the biggest wine event of the year, the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival, is long gone, what is not commonly known is that the events at local wineries continue. Most tasting rooms remain open during the winter months and wineries with restaurants attached continue to plan special events. While the hustle and bustle of the summer months have faded along with the warm, summer days, picking up a local bottle of wine from your favorite Okanagan wineries can add the right touch to any cool night. 

What better way to spend a deliciously cool autumn night than to open a bottle of Tinhorn Creek Merlot, curl up in front of the fire, and watch a good movie or read a classic novel? Or grab a bottle of sweet late-harvest from Summerhill and pair it with a leftover piece of pumpkin pie or a light custard. Whatever your fancy, be sure to visit your local wineries during the cool months of fall-you'll be sure to enjoy more intimate service, a more tailored visit, and walk away with your favorites for your special seasonal events! 

Coming up in November: 

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards - Every Tuesday night from 6:30-9:30 Communal Table Dinners Reservations Required

Hello Steven,Thanks for the nice article, but I don’t totally agree on the importance of short term like you imply:—-We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.Bill Gates—-1. Obsess over customers (not too much on competitors)2. Invent (it’s not an either-or)3. Think long term4.

I definitely agree with you wholeheartedly about this. The way random street citizens overtake the city from the normal law, even the mock trials they have resemble this comic oh so pou.ryrSelioosly a bad job adapting this story. Bane is a much less compelling villain than Deacon Blackfire. Remember how it’s completely left to doubt whether he’s a vampire or just a crazy athletic person?
