Roland Kruger wants to thank all who were able to stop in to visit Wild Goose this past summer season. The weather in Alberta was on everyone’s mind in the early summer and Roland is thankful for the Albertan friends who were able to make the trip to Okanagan Falls to visit the wine shop this year.
With the building renovations complete and the expanded winery now being used for the second vintage, the focus has shifted to the wine shop. Thanks to their new lounge license, visitors to the wine shop will now be able to enjoy wine by the glass along with the stunning vineyard-scape visible from the new patio. With plans for integrating more food items into the mix, the patio at Wild Goose will soon become the place to be. Traditional picnickers who have enjoyed their picnic area in the past need not worry because it will remain available as always.
The new patio license also means that the wine shop will now be readily available to rent for private events as well hosting more frequent special events. “We’d like to have more live music,” explains Roland Kruger. Even if the weather changes, their new patio has you covered. Literally. The patio is fitted with a high pergola topped off with clear deck roofing panels that will provide partial shade without taking away from the amazing vineyard view.
Wild Goose will be ready to help you choose your holiday wine as part of the Okanagan Falls Wineries Association Open House events on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, from 11am – 4pm. Winter hours are by appointment but there is usually someone there 9-4 daily.
