Island Hopping


By: Ann Brydle, Quadra GM, Certified Sommelier & Sherry Specialist

We islanders know how to take advantage of every ounce of summer, don’t we? From hiking and camping, to swimming and canoeing, the long days of July allow us to get outside and explore the natural delights our islands have to offer. Be sure to stop by any of these island producers in between adventures and pick up a beverage to help you wind down, cool off, or celebrate with friends.
