We are celebrating Canada from coast toast here today. So for my wine pick I have selected a wine from a winery located in the west, the stunning Okanagan and specifically the Osoyoos wine region, the Okanagan’s most southern tip, Canada’s only real desert. This is red wine country and home to North America’s first aboriginal winery, Nk’Mip Cellars.

Several years ago Georgia and I had the opportunity to visit Nk’Mip winery, interviewed the winemaker Randy Picton and in fact stayed at the Nk’Mip Resort a beautiful spot that showcases  a rich native heritage.

For my wine pick I have selected the Nk’Mip QwAM QwMT Cabernet Sauvignon 2011. This wine had a rich cocoa and cherry palate with soft, supple tannins. Delicious, available in our market here through VINTAGES at the LCBO for $27.95 per bottle. Agent: Constellation.
