Hillside Winery & Bistro

A quiet day at the Western front meant we had time to test out another restaurant in our local area.  This time we had lunch at the Hillside Winery & Bistro in Penticton.  The upstairs outside patio was a delightful place to spend a lazy afternoon.  The sun was not too hot and there was a little breeze off the lake.  George sampled a flight of their red wines (his favorite was the Syrah) while I had a Duke’s cider (delicious!).  We ordered a number of appies to try their selection and we were not disappointed:  rosemary bread (from Terra Breads in Vancouver!) with hummus; cashew “cheese” with apricot honey; prawn risotto; spicy carrot soup.  We did notice a number of patrons asked if bread was included with certain orders and it was not.  We had asked the same thing.  Seems bread is not a gratis accompaniment anymore.  Too bad.  But that was the worst part of our experience… so we were not overly concerned.  The noise level got a little high when a wine touring busload arrived but that happened at the same time we were leaving so, all in all, it was a good experience and we will recommend this place to our guests.
