For any business in The Okanagan the the hustle and bustle of tourists is a beautiful thing. Spirits raise, the pace quickens and oddly enough, the bosses mood tends to brighten. The sunshine brings out the best in people, the best in business and best of The Okanagan.
The long awaited new releases are out! No more waiting for that new vintage or in some cases, the entire winery line up to return, grab that bottle of Quails Gate 2013 Rose and hit the patio!
May long weekend was a wake up call to many of us in the business, we had tourists from Washington, Alberta and even Saskatchewan come through our establishment. There is something about informing newcomers about the amazing wine we produce in British Columbia that gives me great pride, it's always surprising to hear how big BC wine is actually getting within Canada and the USA. After hearing about the weather some of our tourists are still enduring back home makes me appreciate where we live that little bit more as well.
Summer is just around the corner and I can't wait for what it will bring this year. We are spoiled here in The Okanagan, we have this amazing weather, lakes, wine and people. I look forward to seeing you all in the months to come, if you find time come by the store and say hi, it's always a pleasure meeting new faces.
