As the days get colder and winter settles in, the perfect evening arguably consists of sitting by a crackling fire, wrapped in a blanket, with a glass of delicious wine. Burrowing Owl Estate Winery is just the winery to make that perfect evening a reality.
Burrowing Owl Guest House
With international travel at a standstill, the Guest House at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, located in Oliver, is the ideal place for a serene getaway this winter. With private views of the vineyard, a fireplace in each room, and just steps away from the wine shop and the estate restaurant, The Sonora Room, you’ll have everything you need within walking distance.
If you’re looking for a memorable experience, but aren’t looking to stay the night, The Sonora Room should be at the top of your list. One of the first restaurants in the South Okanagan to require their staff to wear masks, The Sonora Room is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of their staff and guests.
“Fall and winter are such exciting culinary seasons,” says Kerri McNolty, vice-president of marketing at Burrowing Owl. “All of the hearty flavours represented in our dishes pair so well with these robust reds that we’re known for.”
Additionally, The Sonora Room features Burrowing Owl library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale.
Shop Online for Wine
For those unable to visit the winery, you can still enjoy delicious Burrowing Owl wine, delivered right to your door in BC, when you purchase through Burrowing Owl’s online wine shop.
Burrowing Owl offers private or corporate virtual tastings, where the selected wine will be delivered to your home and an ambassador will guide you virtually through a personalized experience. But with this year coming to an end, the winery is already looking to the future.
“We’re looking forward to next year, as we’re continuing to find unique ways to deliver enhanced food and wine experiences with educational components,” says McNolty. “During COVID-19, we’ve learned there is a massive appetite for unique and virtual wine tastings and experiences,” says McNolty. “The bar has been raised, and it has really lit a fire under us to get creative.”
If you’re looking for a gift for a wine lover this season, Burrowing Owl sends personalized gift cards, and will ensure they get to their recipients as quickly as possible. If you would like to order a gift card, please call 1.877.498.0620 extension 1.
Burrowing Owl is open from Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm, with wine tastings by appointment. The winery will be closed as of mid-December, with plans to reopen February 11 for Valentine’s Day weekend.
