The Perfect Mother’s Day for Wine-Loving Moms

things to do for mother's day in the okanagan

Ditch the Bouquet and Give her a Wine Experience!

If your mom is a big fan of wine, then don’t bother getting her flowers or another cookbook - give her what she loves.

If there’s one thing we’re sure Mom loves more than wine, it’s you. So, why not bring her to one of our wineries and enjoy a wine experience with her?

We’ve got a variety of winery experiences that will elevate her knowledge and appreciation of wine. Plus, they’re a whole lot of fun!

Wine Experience Centre

The Great Estates Wine Experience Centre at the Lakeside Resort in Penticton will have the bubbles open all Mother’s Day weekend. So, if Mom loves sparkling wine, a visit here would earn you some serious daughter/son/husband Brownie points!

You can also book the Wine and Cheese ‘Perfect Pairing’ Experience or try the popular Wine+Chocolate=Happiness tasting. If you have a group of 8-12, you can book a private, custom tasting!  

You don’t need a reservation if you want to come taste some bubbly, but you will need to reserve for a wine experience. You can do that here.

The Wine Experience Centre at the Lakeside Resort in Penticton is open from 10 am - 6 pm daily.

Sumac Ridge Estate Winery

At Sumac Ridge in Summerland, you can choose from several elevated wine tasting experiences including the Progressive Pairings, Black Sage Food & Wine Pairings, or the Black Sage Tasting Gallery.

Mom will feel extra special if you take her to the Mother’s Day Bubbles ‘N’ Bites on May 12th from 3:30 - 4:30. It includes five vivacious sparkling wines paired perfectly with small bites served in the Steller’s Jay Sparkling Wine Cave.

Reserve your spot here. Sumac Ridge is open 10 am - 5 pm daily.

Down in Osoyoos at Nk’Mip Cellars, the Patio Restaurant is now open for the season where the food, wine, and view vie for your attention. Plus, the most popular tours and tastings are back and available on Mother’s Day. Mom might like to experience the Qwam Qwmt Tasting Gallery (now accepting reservations).

And, if you can’t make it to one of the wineries with Mom this Mother’s Day you can still give her the winery experience. Book an experience for her or give her a Great Estates Okanagan gift certificate which she can use at any one of our wineries or the Wine Experience Centre at the Lakeside Resort.  Happy Mother’s Day!
