Notes from Whistler, B.C.: Nita Lake Lodge – Whistler, B.C.

Don’t let Lloyd the Bartender from “The Shining” fool you (whose dapper mug graces the bar menu) – Nita Lake Lodge has a ‘redrum’ of wine selections to crow over.
During a recent Canadian Thanksgiving stay, binNotes tried the three-course Turdunken dinner with wine pairings. The first course of butternut squash soup trilled harmoniously with a delicately floral Trisaetum Reisling, 2008. The second course opened with an incandescent Châteauneuf du Pape 2007, followed by a dim sidekick of lukewarm turdunken. In fairness, the Lodge proffered a second pouring of the Pape, assuaging offended taste buds. The final course presented a whimsical riff on traditional pumpkin pie, served with Taylor Fladgate 10-year-old tawny port, striking a dulcet end to the evening.
Nita Lake Lodge allows for blissful seclusion and some spectacular pours for those willing to unhook from the usual Whistler whirlwind. And that’s no shine.
