Cedar Creek Estate Winery: Class, Quality and Service
Did you know that Cedar Creek Estate Winery, is one of the earliest wineries established in the Kelowna region? Did you also know, that Cedar Creek is one of the top food and wine destinations in Canada? As well, Home Block, the winery’s restaurant, is nominated for “Canada’s Best New Restaurants 2019” category? Pretty impressive, I must say.
Kelowna and region is home to many wonderful, world-class wineries. So when frequently asked, “What to do in Kelowna when visiting?” The answer is simple, wine tasting! How magnificent is that…and…Cedar Creek Winery should be right at the top of the list.
Cedar Creek Estate Winery is situated on a 50-acre property, along the beautiful Okanagan Lake. This property is named the Home Block Vineyard. From here and a couple other properties situated in Osoyoos, Cedar Creek grows all of their own fruit respectfully and organically.
Cedar Creek produces a wide range of wines, categorized in their Estate and Platinum collections. Aromatic whites include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. The big reds are comprised of Meritage, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Rose, sparkling and Icewines are produced too. One of my personal favorites is their Pinot Noir rose. It’s light, fruity, expressive, and delicious for all occasions. Definitely a must try.
This last summer 2019, Cedar Creek’s tasting room and restaurant were completely renovated – and wow, wow, wow!
The Home Block Restaurant is surrounded by the Home Block Vineyard. Built with fieldstones and 100 year old reclaimed barn wood, it serves spectacular foods, while offering spectacular lake, vine and valley views. The architecture is open concept, full of natural light and stunning. The quality and presentation of food is very high quality. One of my favorite lunch items on the menu is their Burrata appetizer. It’s served with cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and focaccia bread. The servers are well educated in their menus and are pleased to assist you in food and wine pairings. Check out these appetizers we had with the Rose below.
Cedar Creek offers a member based, exclusive Platinum Wine Club. Think of it like a subscription service that sends you 6 bottles of wine, three times a year, and right to your doorstep. Every shipment is fully customizable to your preference! I don’t know about you, but that is MY kind of subscription! If this is something that interests you, check it out here.
One more thing. Cedar Creek hosts many events throughout the year. You can check them out on their website. But, if you are planning a party, wedding, or corporate event, then consider hosting your function at Cedar Creek. Give them a call.
What I love about Cedar Creek, besides the quality wine, food and sheer beauty of their estate, is that Cedar Creek is an approachable winery. Their professional staff create an experience so guests don’t feel intimidated, even if they’re not wine experts. The team at Cedar Creek make your visit an educational, fun and enjoyable encounter. Their on-site facilities are top notch, however – great wine starts in the vineyard.
Definitely a must visit for your next getaway!
