Westside Wine Trail part 3

Today we finish our tour of the wineries that are in and around Kelowna. Our last 2 wineries are Mission Hill Family Estate and Kalala Organic Estate Winery.

Mission Hill Family Estate is a must see, it is one of North America's landmark wineries. Wine country's masterpiece! The winery is renowned for it's elegant architecture and dazzling hilltop views. They won winery of the year and Canadian wine producer of the year in 2011. Come and experience an evening performance under the open sky at the Mission Hill amphitheater, it is unforgettable. The 2012 concert season begins Sunday, June 24 with Chris Botti.

Kalala Organic Estate Winery is a small family owned winery with big awards. Kalala is the Okanagan's newest organic winery. The hand-picked grapes and handcrafted wines have taken Kalala very quickly into the international winner's circle. Their first ever vintage of Chardonnay icewine was awarded gold at the prestigious 2010 Chardonnay du Monde competition in France. How sweet is that! Kalala was named after the owner's hometown which means "miracle place."
