Wine Tasting at Home – Castello di Amorosa

Posted on by Jeff & Tara

Castillo di Amorosa, Napa Valley, California

Even after 6 weeks in California we knew we were still only allowed to bring 4 bottles of wine back with us to Canada. It turns out that two of them (we actually brought five, shhh don’t tell) came from Castillo di Amorosa. It is unlikely that we will find another bottle of this one until we get a chance to go back to Napa, but we do recommend the wine and the castle if you are in the area… Read More

Posted on by Jeff & Tara

Lobby Pacific Inn and Suites Vernon

On a few of our many road trips to Invermere, BC we don’t always make the full 10 hour drive in one day so we pick a place to stop, taste wine and relax. On this trip we decided to head off the Trans Canada Highway for a nice drive along Mara Lake and stay the night in Vernon, BC at the newly build Pacific Inn & Suites. Read More

Posted on by Jeff & Tara

Next Issue

I subscribed to a free 30 day trial on in December 2014 and before my 30 days were over I was hooked. I already had an iPad but did not use it for reading. After a few months of getting used to swiping the pages and reading my magazines on a device instead of the feel of the paper pages, I LOVE IT! Read More

We have visited Chemainus, BC located about 30 minutes south of Nanaimo, BC several times this summer. Chemainus is home to 40 world famous murals, the highly rated Chemainus Theatre Festival and the historic, scenic and challenging Mount Brenton Golf Course.

Customer Service at the Next Level

Posted on by Jeff & Tara


Last month we wrote about Marriotts launch of their “Text the front desk” program which we thought was a great new customer service tool. This was a few months after they launched futuristic looking charging stations in their lobbies. This month Marriott is at it again with the announcement that… Read More

BC Best Craft Beer – Arrowhead Brewing Company

Posted on by Jeff & Tara

Arrowleaf Bottles

It might be the Rockies, the scenery, the wildlife, the great people, the ‘Island time’ vibe but we always feel like we are in another world from our regular life. We relax, enjoy the view and actually take a few deep breaths. The Arrowhead brewery, taproom room and shop did not exist when we first started our visits to the area. It opened late in 2012 and is now open seven days a week all year long. Read More

Noble Beer from Kamloops

Posted on by Jeff & Tara


Our winter trip and taste through California has renewed our interest in both BC wine and beer. Not that there was anything wrong with the Napa Valley wines and the San Diego Craft beer scene but we think there are some unique finds in BC, as well as, gulp… Read More
