The Okanagan wineries have been very, very busy with harvesting and a careful monitoring of temperatures and heat units. This winery near Osoyoos was in the middle of some observation, likely regarding the progress of this particular field.

Now that I’ve started growing vegetables, I too have been monitoring the temperature overnight. I have a newfound appreciation for harvesting. I can’t imagine how much work is involved for a winery, but I appreciate their dedication for us to enjoy a nice glass of wine!
I do too! There’s a lot of education, experience, observation and timing that go into a good glass. This particular winery is making some really fantastic reds! To your good health and a successful garden harvest! 🍷
Ahhhh, future vintage happiness. Happy Wednesday Lynette. Allan
Agreed. We have a membership at this particular winery because they are really distinguishing themselves with their reds. And of course, with winter’s arrival, a good red is a good thing! 🍷
This is the time of year the bears stroll up and down the rows at night.
I hadn’t heard of them doing that before, but of course, the nice rows give them a good chance to forage and hunt! Sure puts a damper on a moonlit stroll through the vineyards!
I have, at Wilson’s vineyard on Naramata Road, many, many, many years ago.
Wilson’s vineyard is no longer there; it has probably been incorporated into another operator’s vineyard at this point. Good to know the bears find this attractive!
