Rosé Road Trip

June 16, 2009

We explored the Okanagan Valley vintners by vehicle and found beaches,
nibbles and bottles of blush.

the motor inns: Osoyoos is now home to the lap of luxury at Walnut
Beach Resort
. In between your winery crawls, soak in the lakeside
hot tubs, or curl up under a Palapa umbrella on the private beach for
instant exoticness. In addition to the fully-equipped suites, poolside
BBQs allow you to grill Golden Mile goodies while taking in the desert
sunset. Walnut Beach Resort, 4200 Lakeshore Dr., Osoyoos,

Before tackling the Naramata Bench, fuel up at
Summerlands Victoria
Road Deli & Bistro
with scrumptious updates on the ol panini
press. Its signature sandwich features house cured duck, ham and
portobello mushrooms, while its mixed frites boast potato, yam and
parsnip with smoked tomato and cherry ketchup. On your way out pick up
Poplar Groves Double Cream Camembert from the adjoining deli for a
perfect picnic pairing. Victoria Road Deli & Bistro, 108-13615 Victoria
Rd. N, Summerland,

Leave Ogopogo souvenirs to the kiddieson trend
this season is the Okanagan rosé. Unlike most syrupy pink Zinfandels,
these subtle sippers invoke herbs and stewed strawberries. Our top
choices to pick up on your travels are Le Vieux Pins 2008 Vala Pinot
Noir Rosé, See Ya
Later Ranchs 2008 Nelly
and Therapys 2008 Pink Freud. The only
buyers remorse you may have depends on whether your trunk is big enough
to fit them all.
