When you visit The View Winery on Ward Road, prepare to taste sumptuous wines, do a little holiday shopping and even sample a crisp apple cider.  Regardless, it’s virtually impossible to visit The View without having a whole lot of fun.  That’s because everyone working there loves to share their wines and other products in their intimate and captivating atmosphere.
The View is home to some exceptional wines including the 2012 Distraction Frizzante, a lightly effervescent treat with aromas of strawberries, cranberries and pomegranate.  This wine lends itself to any celebration and is perfect for the holiday season, says The View Marketing Muse Angela McManus.
“The Distraction Frizzante is happiness in a bottle!  It is an off-dry, sparkling blend blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinotage grapes and it’s perfect for New Years’ Eve.”
Another 2012 vintage that is attracting a lot of attention – and an international award – is the 2012 Gewüztraminer Reserve.  Only 280 cases were produced, so stock up early…this crisp white wine with lots of citrus and melon flavours and a lingering finish is a classic choice for that special turkey dinner.  A perennial favorite is The View Riesling, and the 2012 is enjoying a barrage of awards…in fact, they’ve received three awards in the last six months alone!
They don’t just make great wines at The View…this organization has a big heart and they are keenly  focused on community involvement.  The View received the coveted Kelowna Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Hospitality and Tourism just last month.  The local arts scene is another recipient of  The View’s passion for community.  And this year, the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be the benefactor for The View Cares, their Red Shoe campaign for community philanthropy.  
Drop by The View this holiday season.  After all, there’s nothing better than laughter and superb wines, and they serve up both with great style.
