The Alfresco dinner at Gods Mountain Estate was an evening we had been anticipating months in advance. Joy Road hosts a magical long table dinner overlooking the stunning Skaha Lake celebrating the bounty of the Okanagan every Sunday night. We decided to plan an entire day of fun hitting up multiple wineries on our way to dinner celebrating one of the founders of Man+Woman.

Our first stop was Fitzpatrick Winery, who specializes in sparkling wine. We had a private tasting overlooking the vineyard and lake, followed by a tour of the wine cellar. This is the only Okanagan winery that makes sparkling wine the traditional champagne way which results in the highest quality product.

Our next stop was Painted Rock which has to be one of the most beautiful wineries in the Okanagan. The tasting room is bright, white and open with a contemporary feel and has floor to ceiling sliding doors that open up to a gorgeous view of the lake. Their wine list is just as impressive as the view, especially the reds which are great for aging.

Our dinner was truly an extraordinary experience. It was so nice connecting with so many wonderful new people over such a beautiful meal. Grace was quoted directly from chef Alice Waters, who is one of the most influential American food figures, famous for only using organic, locally grown ingredients. We started with Bella sparkling wine and charcuterie followed by freshly shucked corn soup - so fresh that the corn has not even touched the fridge, paired with Wild Goose God's Mountain Riesling. Our main course was an abundance of local veggies, legumes and grains paired with wild salmon and Pentage Gamay, we finished with orange blossom water buttermilk cake paired with white wine and vanilla bean peaches.

Needless to say, this is an evening we wont be forgetting anytime soon. Big thanks to Pomme Salon for getting our hair camera ready, Apres Tour for the transportation and Darren Hull for capturing this special day!
