Quails’ Gate Winery Restaurant among World’s Best

October 23, 2013 (Vancouver, BC) – Quails’ Gate has become an Okanagan Valley icon because of its premium wines, and now the winery’s restaurant.   A panel of international experts has voted Old Vines Restaurant & Wine Bar onto dailymeal.com’s 20 Best Winery Restaurants Around the World list.

 

The recognition from dailymeal.com, which is devoted to reporting on food and wine culture, is the latest accolade for the winery restaurant.  In the past Old Vines has received gold (2011) and silver (2012 and 2013) medals in the Vancouver Magazine’s Best Winery/Vineyard Dining category. 

 

How did the voting take place? The publication compared and evaluated winery restaurants from 67 of the world’s wine-producing countries when preparing its list.  One hundred experts, including food and wine writers, wine experts, sommeliers, bloggers, and Daily Meal staff, voted for their favourites in the categories Cuisine, Wine, Winery Experience, and Style/Décor/Service.  Much of the other winery restaurants that placed in the Top 20 were from the world’s premier wine-producing regions, such as California’s Napa Valley, Spain’s Rioja, Mendoza, Argentina and Tuscany in Italy. Quails’ Gate Winery was the only Canadian winery to receive recognition in this competition, placing 17th overall.

 

The Stewart family, who own and operate the restaurant and winery, have shown that the quality of the wine they make is a direct reflection of the terroir of the Okanagan Valley.  This same approach in regional authenticity, guides every decision in the kitchen of Old Vines and is transforming and defining Okanagan cuisine as world-class.  Chef Roger Sleiman sources ingredients from the restaurant’s own on-site garden as well as local farms and fields – flavours that are a perfect match for Quails’ Gate’s estate-grown wines. 

 

The restaurant is open year-round, allowing guests to enjoy stunning panoramic views of the vineyards, Okanagan Lake and slopes of Mt. Boucherie.  Old Vines was one of the first winery restaurants to open in the Okanagan, and is still the gold standard for food and wine lovers.
