A Different Taste of Summer FunLooking for something new to do this summer? Nannies on Call Okanagan has some great ideas that can be paired with wineries and wine tasting in the Okanagan!
Bicycle Wine Tours
Bring your bicycle to historic Kettle Valley Railway, where wine and culinary lovers have the opportunity to ride on two wheels while discovering the beautiful wineries in the Okanagan. Another great place to get some exercise and learn about the wineries is the Vancouver Island, where bicycle winery trips can range from short excursions to overnight trips.
B&B Wine Escape
What can be more fabulous than an escape to the Okanagan, where morning views of vineyards from the windows of a B&B in the Okanagan are fabulous. Some B&B’s in the Okanagan area actually belong to fine wineries, while others are situated nearby. Add to your B&B winery experience with a wine-master dinner, spa escape, or stay in a world-class resort that offers wine tour packages. Or, stay in a villa, inn, or guest house set right on the site of a winery in the Okanagan.
Have a Wine Picnic
Spierhead, Mooberry, and Noble Ridge are just a few of the Okanagan wineries that invite you to bring your picnic lunch and enjoy their onsite wines. Imagine a peaceful picnic lunch with views of the vineyard lands, topped off with the wine tasting experience.
Fine Wine & Art
Probably one of the best pairings for fine wine is fine art. Browse through amazing local artwork while tasting the wine in the Okanagan. Many of the Okanagan wineries are actually set right inside art galleries, where life sized sculptures and paintings by local artists are displayed. Red Rooster and Hornby Island are two of the wineries in the Okanagan where you can enjoy fine wine and fine art, all in the same place.
There’s nothing merrier than a wine festival in the Okanagan, where wine tasting is mixed with great food and fun events. Wine festivals occur throughout the year, and can be as short as a single day or as long as a full weekend of fun. Of course, while wine tasting is a truly a classy and memorable experience, and Nannies on Call Okanagan wants you to know that you can enjoy the experience even if you have children. While you are sightseeing in the beautiful countryside of the Okanagan and living the wine tasting experience, Nannies on Call Okanagan will come to your home or hotel to keep your children happy and show them a good time, too.
