Canadian Grape Wine Night Light Cup
Canada is one of the countries in the world that produces wine, and Thompson Okanagan has earned this reputation.
But until I set foot on this mysterious land, I realized why there are countless wineries in this area.
銆€銆€The winery suffered a wine treat in Kelowna, our first stop, known as the “British Columbia Fruit Basket.”
This city on the shores of Lake Okanagan has fertile soil, a mild climate, numerous orchards and is one of the many concentrated wineries.
銆€銆€Kelowna is also Canada’s main wine growing region, with 66 vineyards in the Okanagan Valley, 13 of which are in Kelowna, ranging from small shop-style orchards to large modern orchards.
銆€銆€Our group arrived in Kelowna at noon.
After a short break at the stay at the Kelowna Sandman Hotel, head to the most prestigious Mission Hill Family Estate in the area.
銆€銆€The car drove to the Mission Hill road, far from being attracted by a large and vivid yellow-brown, large “arch” of European church architecture. The blue sky and white clouds, the lake and the mountains, the “arch” was spectacular.
It was only recently that this is the Buddhist Mountain Winery we are going to visit.
銆€銆€The Buddhism Mountain Winery has 5 vineyards totaling 400 microns.
Although the winery was built by Mandela in 1981, the ice wine produced here has won numerous awards and has been widely praised by international professionals.
銆€銆€Walking through the arch, it is a spectacular courtyard with a 12-story clock tower on the front and towering into the sky.
Surrounded by terraces, gazebos, wine tasting centres and breweries.
銆€銆€Close to the terrace is an exquisite tasting room with double vaulted ceilings.
The tasting room also houses the Mandela family’s art collection, including the huge ear-skinned oval-necked earthen jar, which dates back to the 4th century BC Olympic Games;The 17th-century wine bottles were found, and a pair of Baroque wooden pillars and a Roman glass in the mid-18th century were also displayed in the hall.
銆€銆€Accompanied by a passionate master, we tasted the award-winning wines of the Buddhism Mountain Winery.
The owner said that different wine varieties have different aromatic odors and need to use special matching wine glasses, otherwise the taste effect of the wine will not be optimal.
Looking at the wide and small bottles and glasses on the table, people feel that this must be a profound knowledge.
The owner told us that S. in 2005.
Chardonnay won the gold medal in this year’s new World Cup International Wine Competition.
This wine is the representative of the ultimate wine, representing the superb winemaking process of Buddhism Mountain Winery.
銆€銆€Gently shake the glass, sip a bite, savor the taste, the bitterness and bitterness fills the whole taste buds, which is memorable. The owner introduces us to several red wines, Pinot Noir is a very popular red wine.
One of the Pinot Noir wines of 2005 is lighter than ordinary wines, with fresh cherries and a substitute flavor.
Fresh red and black fruit are well mixed together with the wonderful taste of cinnamon.
If you are lucky enough to taste this wine, it is recommended to pair it with a cream-based meal, a shellfish, salmon, turkey, appetizer or a fine Asian spice dish.
銆€銆€There may be nothing more than a panoramic view of the Piedmont Hill winery, while overlooking Pinot Noir, Chardonnay vines and Lake Okanagan, slowly absorbing the wine, fine food and more pleasant things.Now!
銆€銆€At 7:00 pm from the winery, the wine estate has always been exceptionally quiet and beautiful against the backdrop of the setting sun.
The light breeze blew, I feel the coolness.
In the evening, we enjoyed the special special treatment of wine, wine and food in the vicinity of a restaurant called Dragon King.
銆€銆€Ice wine, God’s joke to Thompson Okanagan travel, if you don’t taste ice wine, absolutely regret.
銆€銆€After leaving Kelowna, we headed to Osoyos and passed through Oliver.
It is rich in the most popular high-end ice wine brand in China – Yunling Icewine.
銆€銆€Strolling in the Yunling vineyard, the owner of the winery introduced us to the history of ice wine.
It turned out that the birth of ice wine, there is another story: in 1794, when the farmers of the German town of Franconia were immersed in the joy of harvest, a sudden frost drop made them stupid – the grapes were frozen”Some people accepted the facts of the disaster year, and another part of the optimists tried to continue the winemaking with the frozen grapes, and they succeeded. (375ml) ice wine prices will be much higher than other table wines.
A small bottle of ice wine combines the cold and the cold and the warmth of the world. The most precious wine should be given to the most precious people.
銆€銆€In terms of taste, I prefer the Riesling premium white wine produced in 2006.The so-called grape for this wine was picked and picked on December 7 of that year.
The juice is pressed by frozen grapes in minus nine months, and then cold fermented with special baking powder. The taste is mixed with the aroma of pear, peach and apricot jam, fresh and refreshing.
銆€銆€Each season, Yunling Winery will launch a new menu and its wine.
I also learned a little trick to freeze the wine and the glass slightly, but it is not frozen, it can’t be iced, the temperature is below eight seconds, the wine is accompanied by fresh fruit and fruit-based dessert, and the goose.Liver, or a piece of quality cheese.
However, be aware that desserts can’t be sweeter than wine, otherwise the taste of the wine will be greatly discounted.
銆€銆€The British Columbia Ice Wine Festival is the perfect time to sample a variety of ice wines, with the Sun Peak Resort in January each year.
Another wine festival that cannot be missed is the Okanagan Autumn Wine Festival, which is an antique from September 28th to October 7th this year.
銆€銆€North American Aboriginal First Winery The last stop of our winery tour is Osoyoos, the southernmost city of Thompson Okanagan.
There is the famous winery Nk’Mip.
銆€銆€Nk’Mip is the largest winery owned by Native Americans. The winery is located on a terraced field overlooking the shores of Lake Osoyoos.
Surprisingly, it is possible to see the traces of the natural desert.
銆€銆€Every October, Nk’Mip’s spacious pavilion offers exquisite lunches from 11am to 3pm, and of course wine tasting is indispensable.
The menu is designed by Chef Jeff Miller for both local game and wild salmon, as well as traditional ingredients for Aboriginal cooking.
It is probably the only winery that can taste the representativeness of Aboriginal people.
Specialties include smoked squid, white sand beef, wild sausage, and grilled corn.
The chef also specially prepared a wide selection of appetizers and other main dishes to complement the various wines of Nk’Mip.
