Fruit Stands and Wine - A B.C. Road Trip

Posted: 29 Aug 2011 05:48 AM PDT

Hello everyone! Janis here, from Pinecone Camp. I just did a little road trip up to the Okanagan, and through B.C. wine country (about 5 hours from Vancouver and Seattle), and I have to say, it was difficult to get back to work! Such a beautiful part of Canada. The only desert area in Canada too, fyi. I shot this story with my Canon, iPhone and old kodak duaflex. Fun to experiment and compare. Here we go...

We started out our first day at this diner, Elite, in Penticton. No frills, but cheap and pretty tasty. 

A view from Munson Mountain in Penticton.

Forest Green Lavender Man, in Naramata, is a beautiful place to check out before you hit the wineries. 

Poplar Grove was one of my favourite wineries. Fantastic wine and the staff were so helpful and informative. Beautiful building and the view was amazing. 

This area is great for vintage shopping as well. We checked out Zack's in Olalla, and Jardin Antiques in Okagnagan Falls. I actually picked up the coffee cups pictured, as I have a small collection of this print and they were only .50 each. Love a deal. 

The Oliver theatre in Oliver BC. I'm so happy it's still there. For more info about this fabulous small town, click here.

Another must-see winery is Tinhorn Creek in Oliver. Miradoro is their new restaurant - definitely the best meal we had on the trip. Loved their wine too ;)

Back in Naramata, we found our new favourite fruit stand, The Trail, where you can pick your own organic corn, plums, peaches and apples. Jean Hollett and her uncle, Rod, know their produce! Very cute duo.

If you do visit B.C., I hope you can take a little tour through this part of the province. Countless fabulous, and award winning, wineries, endless orchards, great vintage shops, and beautiful lakes. Breathtaking.

Have a lovely day!
