Last week, we went to Oliver to showcase our new CTC Signature Experience™ with Jackson Triggs to some of the executive at Watermark Hotel. Driving to Oliver through the rain and wind made for quite a nervous drive – but the skies opened and the sun shone on the vineyard making it a memorable evening.
What a great night it was!! We started with Winemaker Derek Kontkanen and
Vineyard Manager, Troy Osborne talking to us about their work and passion in the making of world class wines – each separate taste was accompanied by intimate knowledge of what went into its creation “…this lot produces Shiraz while mere feet away is a perfect location for Cabernet Savignon…”
The group then indulged in a charcuterie platter of local artisan meats and cheeses – and the piece de resistance the incredible BBQ with our marinated beef tenderloin was savoured by all. But there was more!!! the grand finale was a vanilla Crème Brulée topped by a fresh strawberry – it was heaven!!
The sun slowly sank behind the hill leaving the light on the vineyards with that breathtaking golden sheen – what an evening. We are so proud to be working with Vincor in the delivery of this extraordinary vineyard experience.
