West Kelowna winery announces 2014 event schedule
It’s going to be a busy summer at Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery (829 Douglas Road, West Kelowna), one of the most picturesque and respected family owned wineries in West Kelowna. Complementing the sweeping views of vineyards, mountains and Okanagan Lake from their wine shop patio, the Gidda family has added a red sails picnic area and a deluxe event tent to the winery, creating an even more exciting venue to enjoy great wine, fine food and good friends.
Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery’s award-winning wines reflect the bounty of the Gidda family’s 100 per cent estate-grown grapes, family owned and operated since 1968. Since then, Mt. Boucherie has evolved from a masterful grape grower into one of British Columbia’s premier wineries, which opened its doors in 2001. Mt. Boucherie’s goal is to produce the finest white, red, and dessert wines for every palate. Led by winemaker Jim Faulkner and his team, the winery produces a diverse and delicious range of 21 reds, whites and ice wines. Incredibly food friendly, the variety of Mt. Boucherie wines available ensures that there’s a bottle to match any palate, plate and mood.
Mt. Boucherie invites the world to experience the very best of the Okanagan at their estate winery this summer. This is wine country, your way.
