The Terrace Restaurant, Kelowna, British Columbia
Perched on a majestic hill overlooking the valley, Mission Hill Family Estate Winery is one of the most beautiful wineries in Canada. From its iconic bell tower, the bells peal at noon and echo over Lake Okanagan. No visit to the Okanagan is complete without enjoying at least one glass of wine at Mission Hill Family Estate, taking a tour of the underground cellars and having lunch or dinner at The Terrace Restaurant; officially named as one of the top five winery restaurants in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine.
The winery reached an international milestone in 1994 when Mission Hill Grand Reserve Chardonnay 1992 won the Avery Trophy for Best Chardonnay Worldwide at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London. This first major award ushered in the new era of B .C. wine-making. This was recently followed another major milestone when the 2011 Martin’s Lane Pinot Noir was names Best Pinot Noir in the world by the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2013.
These world renowned wines are matched exquisitely with only the finest food at Mission Hill Family Estate. There’s artisan honey and annually thousands of jars of local stone fruit are canned and stored. The entire culinary programme uses OceanWise fish and shellfish.
The Terrace Chef, Patrick Gayler is serving forth a menu that could stand on its own in the finest restaurants in the world. Each dish is delicately crafted and is paired with a wine that compliments it. Hot-smoked lake trout is served on a bed of foraged cress with wild chamomile dressing and paired with the 2011 Select Lot Collection Chardonnay. The rich flavours of madras yogurt and grilled octopus pair perfectly with the 2012 Martin’s Lane Viognier. There’s roasted wild salmon, one of the Pacific Northwest’s most exquisite fishes, that demands to be served with a fine wine, in this case a 2012 Reserve Riesling.
