Straight across Lake Skaha from Blasted Church - in the little village of Kaleden, is the neatest little winery...Kraze Legz Vineyard and Winery. Getting to it is easy, but make sure you slow down in the school zone.
The artwork on the bottles is pretty cool. Based on prohibition times and the speakeasies, there is a clever key hole framing the label. When you swirl the wine in your glass to add oxygen, the trickle pattern on the glass has been referred to a crazy legs. I love tales like this.
We got a few bottles of the Bees Knees Pinot Blanc and the Speakeasy Rose - next time through, we'll have to try the Merlot Cabernet Franc.
The view from this property was awesome. We could totally pick out Blasted Church across the lake.
Tangled Vines Estate Winery. Three Blancs - Blancs Have More Fun and R3DS - Red, Red, Red were the bottles that we jammed into the back of the almost-bursting truck. There was a really cool gallery set up just off the tasting area with with some great original art.
Across the way, we visited Wild Goose Winery. It was small, but the folks were very friendly - we stayed for a sip or two.....or even three. We decided on the Pinot Gris and the Riesling Stony Slope.
