We recently took our young guests from Quebec, Steven Beketa and Andrea Kevan, for a two-day whirlwind trip to the Okanagan to experience some of B.C.'s wines. We visited Tinhorn Creek in Oliver, Okanagan Crush Pad in Summerland, and Stag's Hollow in Okanagan Falls. Regretably, we did not have time to visit all the wineries we would have liked so I guess we'll just have to make a few more trips.
Before we checked in to Spirit Ridge, our home for two nights, we stopped at Tinhorn Creek for a quick visit and tour with CEO and head winemaker Sandra Oldfield. We then headed for some sips in the tasting room.
It was interesting for me to watch as they tasted with much thought and the help of an aroma wheel.
Here's an aroma chart I put together. It just might make your wine experience a little bit more fun.
