It’s December, your Christmas list isn’t getting any smaller and you’re feeling a little frazzled.  Sound familiar?  Discover Wines, in Kelowna and Kamloops, carries one of the finest selections of wines you’ll find in BC.  They have also got a great list of items for your Christmas list for both wine and food aficionados.  
According to proprietor Tracy Gray, anything with bling is big this year.  There are a wide variety of sparkling goodies starting at around $5.  Rhinestone bottle stoppers and purse hangers or glittering flasks are great for a stocking stuffer or hostess gift.
For the scotch drinker, try the Whiskey (or Scotch) Stones, a package of nine small, square polished rocks which are stored in the freezer.  They’ll keep your drink cold without diluting it.  (I liked this one so much it’s going to appear in my husband’s stocking.)
Browse the great local cookbooks and wine books, like Jennifer Schell’s The Butcher, the Baker, the Wine and Cheese Maker, featuring the creators of regional foods and wines and a variety of delectable recipes. Other great reads include That’s Amore…Ricardo Scebba’s Mediterranean Kitchen;  Lesley Stowe’s Fine Food Cookbook; Wine Feast – Eat, Drink and Discover BC Wines;  Menus From an Orchard Table or John Schreiner’s Okanagan Wine Tour Guide.
Jewellery, stunning wine racks, cork screws, themed bottle stoppers, cheese trays, aerators and decanters are just a few gifts available at Discover Wines.  Or have them make a customized gift basket.  Whether it’s wine, books or accessories, you’ll find the newest and the brightest at Discover Wines.
