Comments Off on Wine Tasting & Dining at Quails Gate Winery in Kelowna, BC

Girls weekend and we knew where we wanted to go! Quails Gate Winery in Kelowna, BC was at the top of our list. Whenever my sister and I go on trips we usually put together an itinerary of the top places we want to see and things to do. We set aside half the day to spend at Quails Gate, exploring the property, relaxing at their restaurant, Old Vines, and letting our taste buds explore through a couple different wine tastings. It’s safe to say we are SO GLAD that we did!

We saved our visit til our last day in Kelowna and throughout the weekend exploring other areas of Kelowna I asked the question often, “What’s your favorite local winery?” You know what 99% of people said?! Quails Gate Winery!

I can’t say that I was too surprised as I had been here once before on a wine tour and remember Quails Gate stood out from the others. Their customer service at both the wine shop and restaurant were very genuine and personable, creating very memorable and enjoyable experiences.

Honestly, I think I could go on for a while about how much I loved our time there. So I hope you get the idea, ha! What I wanted to share was their two wine tastings that we enjoyed and what made them so special.

After getting our fair share of tastings and learning more about Quails Gate we got a chance to explore the wine shop. I grabbed a basket, filled it up with multiple bottles of my favorites wines, as many of them can only be purchased there. We also discovered that our favorite cheese from our panoramic pairings tasting was available for purchase and both couldn’t resist grabbing a block of that. You guys, why didn’t I buy two blocks?! Needless to say, we will be back to Quails Gate Winery, ready to try out more of their delicious wine and stock up on that cheese!


Thank you so much to Quails Gate for hosting my sister and I and showing us around your gorgeous vineyard. Both wine tastings were complimentary.

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
