Mt Boucherie Family Estate Winery kicks off the spring sipping season with some new hardware; the winery was recently honoured with two Silver Medals at the 2014 Chardonnay du Monde international wine competition. Competing against 34 other countries and over 900 samples, Mt Boucherie won Silver for their 2011 Family Reserve Chardonnay and their 2012 Family Reserve Chardonnay. Perfect pairings for BC’s spot prawn season, both are in stock – get them before they’re gone!
Taste their whole line-up of award-winning wines at Mt Boucherie’s warm and welcoming wineshop on the famed Westside Wine Trail in West Kelowna. Their iconic red banners wave you in to their Douglas Road location, an inspired setting perched high above Okanagan Lake with views that stretch down the lake and across vineyards and rolling mountains. Pair their stunning location with their exquisite wines and your own picnic, and you’ve got the makings for a great day in wine country.
Spring Open House
Mt Boucherie launches sipping season with their Spring Open House on May 3rd, an Okanagan Wine Festival event.

Mark your calendars, and pick your outfit – Lobster Fest is coming to the winery on June 14th!
