Dirty Laundry is a Desired Commodity

October 5, 2008

Last night we had the pleasure of participating in one of the Okanagan Wine Festivals wonderful events, a winemakers dinner hosted by the Villa Rosa restaurant in Penticton BC. The great food was paired with award winning wines provided by the Dirty Laundry Winery, based in Summerland, BC.

This seven course dinner was certainly up to Villa Rosa standards and the wines made it a meal that would be enjoyed by even the fussiest of Connosseurs. The evening started with true Italian antipasto paired with one of Dirty Laundry’s best offerings, Hush, a wonderful light, fruity tasting blush. This was followed by Insalata Villa Rosa Cappricciosa (great salad) served with Dirty Laundry Woo Woo,  made from the oldest gewurztraminer vines in the Okanagan Valley.

The palate was then tickled by crabcakes served with Pinot Gris and scallops and smoked salmon with a crisp Chardonnay. The entree was lamb shank paired with a full bodied Merlot and dessert was an incredibly tasty dark chocolate Ganache Cake which mellowed out the peppery, spiced, full bodied cabernet merlot served with it.

All in all a very enjoyable evening showcasing some of the best the Okanagan Valley has to offer.



  1. Hey, are the Dirty Laundry wines available in the UK or US? I had a Canadian cabernet at the European winebloggers conference and it was very intersting. I’d love to try a West Coast Canadian wine.

  2. Hi, they would not be for sale outside of BC because they sell out just selling locally. You could possibly order some thru their website. You may be able to get some of the bigger wineries stock, such as Mission Hill, Peller Estates, Cedar Creek, Jackson-Triggs or Sumac Ridge Estate Winery.
    Good Luck.
