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.

  • When I came across the Chocolate Coconut Affogato recipe on @nespresso.ca's website I knew I needed to create one for myself. I drove down to the closest store and picked up a locally made pail of Chocolate Macaroon ice cream. The rich flavours of chocolate and coconut paired perfectly with the limited edition iced coffee capsules that Nespresso recently released, Ispirazione Shakerato and Ispirazione Salentina. If you have never tried an affogato before, head to the blog to see just how easy it is!

  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )
