We are back.
Not as many photos as i thought mostly b/c i had a glass in one hand most of the time.

I'll put something together soon including some shots of the great BC mountains.

14 wineries in 2.5 days, 50 bottles shipped back, over $1300 for wine alone...not bad i think

Looking forward to your pictures and comments. Grey Monk is the only one on that list I have visited. Most probably didn't exist the last time I was out there.

Images of the wineries and wine country from the British Columbia Fraser Valley (first group up to Vista D'Oro) and then the Okanagan Valley (Oliver and then Kelowna; second post).

I can provide some description after, i do have a complete list of all the wines we tasted, but really, just check out the winery websites and pretty much everything each winery had...we tasted!
The fellow in the photos is a buddy who attended the Olympics as well and houses some of his wines in our cellar.

Just one quick piece of description, that last photo of a Hanle Vineyards riesling icewine 1983 goes for about $1100 on the open market.

If i recall, the winery only had one or two bottles of it left in their own 'library'. This one is housed at a restaurant in Oliver.
