    Home Block Restaurant at CedarCreek Estate Winery

They source all their ingredients from the estate’s own gardens, local farmers, foragers, and ranchers.

    Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate Estate Winery

    3303 Boucherie Rd, Kelowna, BC

    Quails’ Gate Estate Winery is home to 160 acres of vineyards and they are leaders in the development of Canadian viticulture practices. Their on-site restaurant, Old Vines, boasts a dynamic menu of wine-led, contemporary cuisine inspired by seasonal local farms and suppliers throughout beautiful British Columbia. 

    The team recommends pairing the Fraser Valley pork chop with peach mustard with their Dry Riesling; the vines that produce these grapes grow deep in the estate’s ancient soils, resulting in a wine that balances minerality and acidity. The oysters on the half-shell pair well with the Chenin Blanc, which has been enjoyed by a number of VIPs including US President Obama (2007 vintage) and William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (2010 vintage).
