After a filling breakfast at Crucetti’s Family Restaurant, I figured we should probably drive around and see if any of the wineries were open at 10am on Sunday. The first thing I usually do in a new city is drop by the Visitors Centre, but unfortunately the one here in Oliver is closed on the weekends.
That’s no worry though, there are some handy maps available to look at.
I decided to take a drive along the outskirts of the city, instead of driving along Main street in the middle of town. The first winery we happened upon was Oliver Twist Estate Winery, where I immensely enjoying their Oliver’s Choice, made with Kerner grapes (so much that I bought a bottle…for my sister).
After this, we made our way over to Hester Creek Estate Winery. It was here that we saw a little pamphlet called the Winery passport contest, held by the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association. This gave us a bit of additional motivation and reason to visit the numerous wineries in Oliver. read more
