Wine is a wonderful thing, but when you learn from Erin Dowsett, Supervisor at Mountain Flowers it tastes even better! Erin guided us through some of the best wines from Summerhill Pyramid Winery in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. The pyramid is especially unique as it is second only to the Great Pyramid of Egypt for alignment and precision and is used in the art of winemaking. The twenty year experiment at Summerhill Pyramid Winery has been proving the effect of sacred geometry with its track record of delicious wines and international gold medals.
With a very successful 1st Annual East Kootenay Beer Festival under our belt it only seems right that we tribute this blog to the art of great beer. For many, the highlight of the event was having the ability to sample a huge variety of local craft beers and ultimately choose their personal favourite. The event resulted in not only a bunch of smiling faces as the breweries were very generous with their delicious samples, but ultimately a winner of the personal choice award for the most favoured local beer.
Winemaking is an old and noble craft, with archaeological evidence revealing the art of fermenting juice dating back to 6000 BC. Today, wine is produced all over the world, with the BC Okanagan region becoming renowned as a world-class producer of award-winning wines.
