Travel: Liquidity Bistro and Winery Visit – Okanagan Falls, B.C.

My little family and I were up in the Okanagan Valley on a mini-vacation recently. And I wanted to do something special, so I made lunch reservations at Liquidity Bistro.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Stephen the Restaurant Manager who asked us if we would like to do a tasting at the tasting bar before we took our seats – what a delightful idea.  Mike was incredibly hospitable and said there were four wines to try that day.  I chose the Pinot Gris 2015 and the Pinot Noir Estate 2014.  Both wines showed beautifully – I was nicely surprised by the Pinot Gris – maybe the best I’ve had in a year…refreshing, nicely layered with a great fruit profile – this is a Pinot Gris lovers’ wine.

Lunch was delicious – we were given a beautiful table that was nice and private and surrounded by windows.  I asked Stephen to choose my meal for me and he chose the Feta Cheese Baked Omelet –  it was excellent and I ate every bite.  Visually, the Eggs Cassolette and the Fraser Valley Duck Confit (that my husband ordered) were the stars of the table – really beautifully presented and equally as good.  I was so impressed with the Pinot Gris that we ordered a bottle for the table and all the meals worked nicely with the wine.

My lovely friend, Erin Korpisto, is the Customer Experience & Communications Manager at Liquidity and she knows I am a hardcore #Chardcore Chardonnay fan and a huge fan of Liquidity’s winemaker, Alison Moyes.  She sent me a fun text saying there was a bottle of 2015 Chardonnay Estate wine with my name on it.  Thank you!  The Spring Release of the new wines will be on April 13th – so I will save my review of the Chardonnay until then.

Should you be visiting the South Okanagan Valley and looking for an incredible wine and food experience – look no further than Liquidity Bistro.
