Life Sightseeing

A day in the life: Wineries

IMG_2818 IMG_2823




One thing about The Okanagan Valley I find amazing is the amount of wineries. A friend of Lori’s worked at Mission Hill Winery years ago here, so Lori wanted to visit the grounds and pay tribute to her late best friend Connie. We also wanted to buy some nice wine of course!

We went to Mission Hill first and what I saw was way different than I expected. The grounds were so posh, and the wine was very tasty. We sampled four red wines, and picked up a bottle each. While outside overlooking the lake Lori turned to me and said “You’ve moved to paradise,” and like I said in my last post (click here to read my day biking the Mayra Canyon) I simply nodded my head, because it’s so true.

After Mission Hill we drove down the road to another winery called Quail’s Gate. This winery was just as beautiful, and the grounds had an amazing view of the Okanagan Lake as well. There were plenty of other wineries we could have stumbled to, but we came home to make a nice dinner, and watch the movie Inside Out.


Wine a little, laugh a lot.

      These are in Kelowna, British Columbia! I am sure the ones in California are beautiful. It’s on my bucket list to visit!
