Predator cellar earns honour

Predator Ridge Resort earns Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine.

Predator Ridge Resort is building a reputation for more than just its picturesque golf courses.

The resort’s selection of Okanagan wines has been honoured for the second time in two years with the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine.

“With so many award-winning wineries in close proximity, we are always proud to represent local wines on our menu,” said Sean Coward, sommelier, and food and beverage manager for Predator Ridge.

“Whether our guests are joining us for a light lunch or hearty dinner after a long day of golf, we offer a comprehensive list of homegrown and imported wines to pair with their meal.”

Range, Predator’s signature restaurant, serves up gourmet fare that can all be paired with a sommelier-developed selection of fine wines. Executive chef Jeff O’Neill and his team ensure their staff is knowledgeable about local products. With more than 80 per cent of wines on the menu from the Okanagan Valley, servers at the resort travel to local wineries to get a better understanding of each wine from the region.
