Sunflowers & British Columbia Wine Country

July 24, 2020

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!

Sunflower Dresses:

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!

    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.
