What’s New Around Our West Kelowna B&B
Little Straw Vineyards
The Slamka family who owned Little Straw Vineyards have been long-time neighbours and friends of ours, have decided to retire, and have sold their winery to Kalala Wines, another West Kelowna Winery. They will be converting the vineyards to organic grapes and the official launch of the new winery is scheduled for spring 2023, where they will be introducing a new premium organic label, Dostana Wines. Dostana means friendship in Hindi language.
We can’t say we have seen a crane in our neighbourhood before, but next to Little Straw Vineyards construction is well underway on another new winery in our neighbourhood. TerraLux is expected to open to the public in late 2022. They are already producing award winning wines. https://www.winealign.com/wines/136623-Terralux-Reserve-Cabernet-Sauvignon-2019#reviews
The Hatching Post
The Hatching Post has opened just down the road from our B&B across from Volcanic Estate Winery. This Brewery and its BBQ smokehouse restaurant has already become very popular. It is about a 7 minute walk from our B&B and is open daily for lunch, dinner and tastings https://hatchingpostbeer.com/
Celebrating 40 Years!
We will be celebrating 40 years here as a B&B this May – the Bed and Breakfast was started, in 1982 by the Jarman Family who were from Australia. Over the 19 years they raised their family while running a traditional B&B. When they decided to retire in 2000, we were ready to retire from our careers and start a B&B and we were lucky to be able to purchase the B&B and take over in the spring of 2001. Watch our Facebook page for Flashback Fridays starting in May where we will share some of the photos of days gone by.
