I know, I know, I promised that my next blog entry would be a continuation of our last Okanagan trip at Burrowing Owl. If I can ever find my damn notes, it will be next. But we’ve been drinking some great stuff this summer, and you need to know about it!
If you are not familiar with the Okanagan Wine Club (and you live in Canada), you should be.
Basically, you can sign up (for free), get offers of great packs of wine from the top BC producers (some of them incredibly small and hard to get). There is no cost except for the wine that you buy, and once you buy just ONE pack, you become a VIP, which entitles you to earlier access to future packs. There is also a special Facebook group dedicated to VIP’s. Check it out.
Anyhoo, I bought a pack recently from a winery I was totally unfamiliar with, called Winemaker’s Cut. Here are my thoughts on those wines (3/4 of them, anyway, the Pinot Noir is still in my cellar), plus a bunch of other stuff. Enjoy!
Some other BC beauties:
How about a couple gorgeous white Bordeaux?
Down the coast we go to our friends in California for some stunners:
And, last but not least, a perennial favorite ‘cheapie’ from New Zealand.
That’s it for today! If I can find the Burrowing Owl notes, that will be next. If not, we will move on to the next stop on that tour, an early morning visit to Moon Curser!
