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.

  • This weekend we were invited to go visit the Easter Bunny. I knew the girls would be excited about it, but I didn’t realize HOW EXCITED, until we got there. They were hopping around, giving hugs and high fives and sneaking into the chocolate basket.⁣⠀

As we left the cookie decorating station Evelyn said, “Mom... I’m going to miss the Easter bunny.” ⁣⠀

  • When I think about my childhood, bike riding is one of the first things that comes to mind. Spring and summer days we were always cruising down the streets with my sisters or making makeshift jumps from random pieces of wood.⁣
⁣
Soooo pumped to have all the kids on a bike this year and finalllllyyyyy getting a bike for myself so that we can create some of those same memories with our kids.⁣
⁣
All the gear came from @canadiantire, bikes, helmets and I even those colourful beads for the spokes to make noise as they peddle. Did you have those as a kid too? #sponsored #CanadasFunStore
