AT THE EDGE
I was in mediations in Kamloops and Salmon Arm recently, and as I drove
home in the snow, I noticed how many wineries are strung along the way—
in Kamloops, Monte Creek, Tappen, Enderby and Armstrong, to name a few
locations. These are generally not spots one associates with wineries. The
focus of attention is usually on the Okanagan and Similkameen.
Then, in Spallumcheen, just outside Armstrong, I saw a sign pointing up
a snowy sideroad to “Edge of the Earth Vineyards”. I decided to explore.
