Quail’s Gate Winery – Okanagan Valley
enowned as one of the top 100 restaurants in Canada, Old Vines Restaurant is an all-seasons culinary destination. Chef Roger Sleiman and his team create spectacular dishes made from the freshest local ingredients, providing guests with a true taste of the Okanagan.
Quail’s Gate is a wonderful tourist destination and overlooks Okanagan Lake in the lakeview height region of West Kelowna. Their new Vineyard is going in on Stewart Road in the upper mission and will be one of the largest single block vineyards in BC.
Quail’s Gate has some of the best white wines in the Okanagan and offers a world class experience of a “Farm to Gate” estate vineyard and winery. There Chardonnays are fabulous and their Pinot Noir superb. We recommend the Richard’s Block Pinot Noir with Grilled Salmon.
Here are the tasting notes on that wine
Complex and multi-layered with aromas and flavours of violets, cherry and raspberry fruit, exotic spice, as well as notes of forest floor and earth. The mouthfeel is beautifully structured with polished tannins and a very long finish. We recommend serving this wine at 15°C to fully enjoy your experience. Pair alongside duck, venison, grilled BC salmon and dishes that include beets or wild mushrooms.
