wine consortium type shops in west Kelowna? and artisan cheese/food shops/farmers markets?

selena03 | May 21, 2011 12:33 PM

I will be going wine tasting with a group of friends in July and we will be doing a private tour in west Kelowna of 6 wineries (the tour company decides which ones so out of my control but they are Quails Gate, Mission Hill, Little Straw, Mt. Boucherie and 2 others that I can't remember). There are a lot of wineries (specifically Naramata) that I would like to go to but won't be able to as we just won't have enough time.

When I have been to other wine areas like Napa, Sonoma, various hill towns in Italy, there were shops/consortiums that did wine tastings where you could purchase the wine if you liked it. A lot of the wineries in the town were represented in these shops so that you could do a lot of tasting/purchasing under one roof.

Is there something like this in Kelowna? We are staying at the Cove so something 10-15 min away would be ideal but I would still like to know if there is a place like this and it is further.

Also was looking for a good place to pick up really great ingredients for the dinner we will making in our hotel that night...cheese, produce, bread etc.

Thanks.
