A true wine lover wouldn’t settle for some candle-lit dinners where a bottle of wine is only for a show. For them, wine is more than being tasty; it’s to be enjoyed and appreciated. If you’re one of those wine enthusiasts, I would like to lift you up and take you to some of the finest wineries of the world that will put up the entire process of winemaking in front your eyes. Be prepared to get intoxicated.
If you are looking forward to an idyllic wine country vacation, this winery will be your ideal destination. The Canadian winery is located about three miles away from the town of Penticton in British Columbia. It’s perhaps how the name is from. This is a boutique winery owned by a famous wine manufacturing family of the area. It specializes in exclusive wines that are manufactured in the single vineyard. You can spend a couple of days in the luxurious guest rooms of the winery to take part in the entire wine manufacturing process.
This is another winery at the Okanagan region in British Columbia. True to its name, this vinery will uncork your hidden desire of tasting different varieties of wine. Thus, if you have tasted red wine but only heard about white wine, ice wine, varietals and blends then this is the place where you can pamper your heart’s wishes! You will love to know that there are as many as six vineyards that are owned by ‘Uncorked’. So, you can either plan a short day trip and visit three wineries at a go or spend the full day visiting all the six wineries. This makes it evident that the tour to different vineries will also give you the pleasure to travel through the entire picturesque region of Okanagan. The unique characteristic of this winery is that you can be the live witness of the manufacturing process of different varieties of wines. Bonus on this is that you can taste each one of them against a nominal charge.
If you are a nature lover with a great fascination for exotic wines, Syncline Winery in Gorge can be your best vacationing destination. Located in the golden hills of the windswept side of Lyle, this winery is towards the north of the Columbia River. You will surely fall in love with the authentic pastoral appeal of this breathtaking farmland. You can enjoy the rarest of wines such as Roussanne, Viognier and Syrah in the tasting room of this rustic winery. However, if you are interested in seeing the process of wine making on your own then you can always visit the adjacent vineyard. Since this vineyard also serves as the open air picnic spot of the winery, planning one with your family won’t be a bad idea at all.
Are you intoxicated already? Don’t be yet. I bet, after your special trip to any of above mentioned winery, it’ll become a memorable and pleasant experience that lingers and stays with you.
