Of art and wine in Canada

Don't miss the 31st Annual Okanagan Wine Festival, which is on from September 30th through October 9th. Mission Hill, in British Columbia's West Kelowna, is planning some very special events. Click here to learn more.

Go for the wine, but leave plenty of time to explore the estate's architecture and art collections. The winery was designed by Tom Kundig, a principal with Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, in Seattle, Washington, and is currently exhibiting fifty sculptures by Nathalie Decoster (two of which are seen below). The winery also has a tapestry by Marc Chagall, and displays of ancient drinking vessels.
