Vinyard Terrace Restaurant (Kelowna, Canada)

We talked about lunch in the last vacation post. It was a classy lunch at the Cedar Creek Winery Estate. The restaurant is called Vineyard Terrace Restaurant (or some spots say Terrace Restaurant).

Cedar Creek Winery Estate is absolutely gorgeous. You can see the pictures on the day recap HERE. To sit on their outdoor terrace to look out at the vineyard with a little bit of breeze and eat a delicious meal was really a fantastic experience. Especially with great company.

Let’s check out the food! 🙂

Can’t find this one’s name but I think something to do with heirloom tomatoes or something….

I’m not sure if you’ve ever had those nantes carrots variety but we love it at our place. We recently started eating the multicolor ones and they are so good. This one with a little bit of spices to aid the taste but not overpower the actual carrots’ natural deliciousness was awesome!

Okanagan Fruit

Okay, I’m guessing you all can figure out that I got the Okanagan Fruit. I always complain about how the alternative for lactose-intolerance is either sorbet or fruits. I’ve never honestly enjoyed a fruit cup more than this one. Okanagan fruits are so good. The peaches and berries. This fruit cup was with sabayon which they described as a sweet hollandaise sauce. I only learned then that hollandaise sauce is just egg whites, same as sabayon, which is why I could have it and it is a really good balance.

Overall, this was a great restaurant experience. We all enjoyed the mains as well. The dessert was delicious as well as the appetizers. The wine was quite good as well. I had the 2014 Riesling. My cousin has the 2015 Senator’s White. My husband, my mom and my aunt shared a bottle of 2014 Gewurztraminer. I guess I should have mentioned it up with the wines.

Have you ever eaten at a winery restaurant? If so, where?

  1. Damn this looks good.
    Like, soo good.
    And great food photography btw.

    We went to Napa valley when we were in California but I can’t recall if we ate at any winery restaurants. We definitely lunched out there at the very least, but that wasn’t really restauranty.

    We did dine at Waupoos winery in Prince Edward county – but IF Ontario has a competitive wine region at all, it’s Niagara, not Prince Edward.

    • Definitely was awesome! Okanagan Valley is fantastic. I’ve been to the Niagara on the Lake region. Another cousin had her wedding at the Legends Estate Winery. Not sure if they still exist but they made an awesome Riesling and the meal was pretty tasty as well. Plus they look out on Lake Eerie so its beautiful. That is the next wine route I plan on hitting after I conquer Eastern Townships in Quebec maybe next month.

      Thanks Jay!! BTW, did you enjoy TIFF?
