New Article: Discovering Wine in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Northwest Travel Magazine

Get to know one of my favorite wine regions, the Okanagan Valley in southeast British Columbia, Canada, in the May/June 2014 issue of Northwest Travel Magazine. My article shares the national-park-worthy beauty of the area and takes you inside of its booming wine scene. This is riesling, cabernet franc, merlot, pinot noir, pinot gris, and sparkling wine country. Expect high acidity and elegance as well as decent prices. One important detail: You'll have to visit the Okanagan Valley to taste most of these wines! Check out the article in this month's Northwest Travel Magazine, subscriptions of which can be found here.

PS>The local Okanagan winery Mission Hill recently won a significant award: That's right all you Oregonian, Burgundian, and Californian pinot noir fans, Mission Hill Family Estate's Martin's Lane Pinot Noir was named the World's Best Pinot Noir at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards.
