Sommelier Express, Summerland September, 2016

It was time to have some fun. I had been working on buying and building Phase 1 of the Peachland Eagles Nest B&B for several months. When the Treehouse Suite opened the guests were having all the fun.

I stopped in at the 8th Generation Vineyard and they told me about a wonderful event organized by the Bottleneck Drive Winery Association called The Sommelier Express (bottleneckdrive.com)

It turned out to be a wonderful event.

The guests arrived at the Ketal Valley Steam Train station (KVR). All were in good spirits and the Vintners were serving their finest sparkling wines and there was a wonderful jazz duo providing entertainment.

The “all aboard” shout was heard and we all scrambled to just the right seat for the train ride. I had invited a long-time friend, Karl, to join me for this event. Karl was a Chief of Transport in the Burnaby fire department so we had to sit by the engine. During the trip I was constantly impressed with the beauty of the valleys below and the fine white wine we were served to the first leg of the journey.

Once we arrived at the KVR trestle, where the train turns around, we were greeted by the same Jazz trio and two of the cideries serving wonderful ciders and hors d’oeuvres.

Once underway back to the KVR station the evening sun skimmed the valley and back lighted the vines. To add to the beauty we were served fine red wines.

Once we arrived back at the KVR station we were greeted with more music and beautifully set tables. The evening dinner was 4 courses. The vintners had chosen wines to pair with each course. They joined us at the table and we had interesting conversations.

The cost was only $125 and that was a bargain for the most wonderful afternoon and evening. I sincerely hope this becomes an annual event.

The Eagles Nest

The property its self is very interesting with its many changes in landscape and views. There are many large Ponderosa Pines on the property. The two homes and RV site sits by themselves and are very private. There is room for ample parking by the cedar split rail fence. There are hiking trails just minutes away up on the next ridge. Watch for the local herd of Black Tail Deer and black bears moving up through our property from the lake to the park on the ridge above. There are many birds flitting about in the pines.

There are 3 options available, the Treehouse Suite, The Orchard House, the Blue Horizon Suite. Each with their own private deck and entrance. You can rent one or a number of the accommodations. If all were rented then the Peachland Eagles Nest B&B can host 15 people, more if you bring an RV.

If you are renting either of the Treehouse Suite, the Orchard House or the Blue Horizon Suite there is space for short term RV and boat parking upon request.

Peachland

The Peachland Eagles Nest B&B® is located above the lovely little town of Peachland in the heart of the Okanagan Valley. Lake, beaches, wineries and tours, festivals, concerts, boat races, fine dining, ski hills, bike terrains, zip lining, ATV tours and more are just the beginning of what our community has year round for people of all ages. Three world class ski hills within 1 to 1.5 hours’ drive during the winter and Okanagan Lake to enjoy during the summer. And don’t miss the wine festival and all the ripe fruit you can pick.

Peachland is the only town on the Lake that retained its beach front. You can walk the length of the town on the Heritage Walk along Beach Avenue. This gives you a chance to stop for a coffee, choose a restaurant for lunch or dinner, which includes the famous Gasthaus or visit and our great little hardware store, Peachland Gallery in the Old Schoolhouse or one of the boutiques.
