Your source for the best selection of Okanagan Wine Festival winning wines is Discover Wines, with locations in Kelowna and Kamloops.
The Kelowna location has been the #1 VQA wine store in terms of sales since it opened July 22, 2003. The Kamloops location, which opened April 24 of this year, had some of the highest sales for any new VQA store opening during its first month.
Discover Wines is what some might term a wine information centre. Not only do customers get to choose from over 800 BC wines at a given time, but they can sample them and learn about them from highly knowledgeable staff.
Owner Tracy Gray recommends that customers join the Wine Club. “There are now three Clubs,” she says. “All White, All Red, or Half Wine-Half Red.” What members receive is a mixed case of wine every two months including a full written description, food pairing, and cellaring suggestions for each wine. There are no set-up fees and all wines are at winery prices.
Every Friday and Saturday are Rosé Days when Discover Wines adds a Rosé to their tasting counters. “This is a great way for people to taste their way through the many delicious BC Rosés on the market,” says Tracy.
Discover Wines Kelowna continues to celebrate its 10th successful year in business. “And with the new Target opening to us on one side and a new, fresh yogurt business on the other, there are even more reasons to visit our mall.”
