Centrally located on Summerland’s popular wine route, The Bottleneck Drive, Sonoran Estate winery epitomizes the family-friendly farm-gate atmosphere, where one can indulge in a diverse collection of quality wines, all without the tasting fee.

May through October, Sonoran’s ‘Full Moon Bistro’ is open daily for lunches (11:30 – 2:30). Take in the spectacular views on their 2000 square-foot lake-view patio and enjoy delicious homemade fare like paninis, wraps, soups, salads, or their famous Baked Brie. Reservations recommended for parties of six or more.
Golfer Series Riesling – Gewürztraminer $12.90
Sonoran’s refreshing, price-savvy white continues to be their most popular offering. This year’s labelling features the same “Golfer Series” painting by Summerland artist, Will Enns (www.willenns.com), but now on a brown-glass bottle.
2012 Ehrenfelser $17.90
A crisp, fruit-forward white with a citrus-floral finish. Great with light BBQ fare such as veggie kabobs, grilled prawns, pork tenderloin and veggie burgers.
Fire on Ice $19.90
Rich in flavour, colour and aroma, Sonoran’s newest dessert wine is a blend of Merlot and Ehrenfelser late harvest and icewine. Featuring irresistible maple, orange-zest and dried fruit elements. Excellent alone or in a Bellini.
