How beautiful is this vineyard?! On the way home from our road trip to Banff & Lake Louise, Alex & I spent a night in Kelowna so we could explore some wineries. A lot of people don’t realize that there is a British Columbia wine country, but there is! The variety of micro-climates throughout BC’s Okanagan Valley mean that we’ve got everything from ice wine (yummmm), to Chardonnay, to Merlot – right here in BC! There are over 200 wineries in British Columbia wine country!
On this particular day-and-a-half trip to wine country we were able to go to 4 different wineries – including the gorgeous one you see in these pictures – Quail’s Gate Winery.
Quail’s Gate is one of my personal favorites for many reasons: the delicious 2018 Pinot Noir, the incredible views of the lake, and the restaurant on site that has amazing food! Alex and I spent way too long doing wine tastings and wandering this beautiful property.
I’ve been thinking of doing a blog post review on my favorite wineries in BC’s wine country … would you be interested in that!? Let me know in the comments.
As you can see from these pictures I wore a loose summer mini dress (my favorite kind of dress) for our winery adventures. Despite the fact that I bought this sunflower dress only two weeks ago it is already sold out. Ugh! I am really loving sunflower print in general for summer though since it has such a retro meets romantic feel to it. Below I’ve rounded up a bunch of sunflower dresses for you to check out / shop. We’ve got everything from a $700 Dolce & Gabbana tiered sunflower mini dress to a $10 t-shirt dress from Romwe, so you’ve got options lol!
I can’t wait to get back to wine country; I hope that with everything going on with COVID we have the chance to drive up again this summer, but if not I am planning a nice long vacation there for 2021!
I love all the wine blog posts, so you can review the best of BC’s wineries. I am here for it, since I want to start traveling again to visit wineries!
Aw yay! okay! I’ll definitely work on that post for the end of summer!
I’d love to do wine country in BC!

Thanks Jill! and okay awesome! I’ll definitely start working on one!
Sunflowers are so beautiful, whether they’re in a vase, in a field, or on a cute dress! I love this look and I’m totally envious of your trip to wineries! I miss that so much.
I totally agree – they just bring so much joy and happiness! and i know, it’s been so hard not to be able to travel like we used to. Hopefully we can collectively kick COVID’s ass by next year and have things return to normal.
This winery has the best view! I also love this gorgeous dress on you. It’s such a happy print!
Isn’t it incredible! And thanks babe!
Sounds like a great place to visit. Hopefully will get to travel sooner than later! xoxo, Sarah
I hope so!!
I’ve never visited BC before, but all of these wineries sound amazing!
You definitely have to come visit once travel is allowed again! It’s such a great place.
Your dress is adorable! I had no clue BC had a wine country– sounds like a great way to spend the weekend 🙂
Thank you! and i know! so many people don’t, and we have so many hidden gem wines here!
What a fun dress!
I miss traveling and yes I would be interested in winery reviews
I can’t wait until we can travel internationally again! I want to visit Hawaii, NYC and Italy as soon as borders are open/safe!
Such a cute outfit for the vineyard! I’m loving everything sunflower right now…
