Explore BC

Follow four travel bloggers—two teams of two—on a month-long adventure as they Explore BC and its many unique experiences.

Team Orca consists of Brendan and Rob, hailing from Rocky Mountain House and Ottawa, respectively. Both are seasoned world travellers and this will be the first time they’ll be meeting each other. Team Eagle is Dina and Ryan, a husband-and-wife duo from London, Ontario, who have visited more than 40 countries together since 2009, yet have never visited British Columbia.

Over the course of four weeks this summer, these four bloggers will attempt to experience much of what BC has to offer: everything from white-water rafting and whale watching to gliding and rock climbing; from winery tours and brewery tours to historic museums and aboriginal experiences. Be sure to follow the adventure on our Facebook page and have your say in where they go and what they do!

Sunset Beautiful scenery Hay ham Appetizer JoieFarm Rose

Every week, God’s Mountain Estate hosts an alfreco vineyard dinner prepared by Joy Road Catering. Last week we were fortunate enough to spend our evening there, savouring innovative locally-sourced foods (Hay-baked ham, anyone?) matched with delicious wines.

Joy Road’s chef Dana’s love for slow, local, seasonal foods showed through in every dish. With each course she explained not only how the dish was cooked, but where the ingredients came from, who grew them, and why she chose them. It added a whole new dimension to the experience.

We toured the Burrowing Owl Winery in Oliver B.C., not far from Osoyoos. The vineyard was beautiful, with the view of a carpet of vines surrounded by mountains. We tried some wines - from the ones described as fruity, to ones described in the tasting notes as having notes of ‘graphite’ and ‘leather’. Our favourite? The Chardonnay!

Southern BC is a great place for a winery crawl. In Creston, we tried the small and intimate Skimmerhorn Winery. We recommend the Kootenay Crush White 2011, that won silver medal at Finger Lakes International Wine Competition 2012 in New York. Take note of the cute dog on the label.

That’s Bob, the winery’s mascot. Our second recommendation is playing with him! He is such a cute dog that will turn upside down at the hint of petting, and will pose charmingly if he suspects you’re taking his photograph!
