As the fall wine harvest season begins to wind down, you may notice that your wine fridge stock is slowly running dry as well. To keep your winter reds replenished, especially during the upcoming holiday season, check out some of these fantastic wine-inspired events taking place in Kelowna.
1. Wine Education Seminars
Hosted by Quails’ Gate, this informational session is not only great for replenishing the wine fridge, it’s also a great way to pick up some tips and tricks of the trade. The Wine Education Seminars will help you pick and pair local wines like a pro and keep you informed on the entire winemaking process. After you attend, you can pass along your newfound knowledge the next time you’ve got a house full of wine lovers gathered around your kitchen island.
2. Cedar Creek After Hours
There’s no better way to stock up on your favourite winter reds (or whites) than by attending a tasting party at one of your favourite local wineries. The Cedar Creek After Hours event is a wine shop that not only educates you but feeds you too. Enjoy canapés, a glass of wine, and great company while adding to your wine collection at home.
3. Light Up The Season Open House
Grab some wine and get a jump-start on your Christmas shopping list at the Light Up The Season Open House hosted by the Mission Hill Family Estate Winery. This event will not only allow you to sip and shop at the same time, you’ll also get into the festive holiday spirit with holiday music and twinkling Christmas light displays. It’s a fabulous way to kick off the season while stocking up your at-home wine collection.
4. Christmas at the Hills
If both your beverage and wine fridge are looking a little empty, the Christmas at the Hills event is the perfect event for you. With wine and beer tastings, snacks, and live music, you can sip and savour your favourite flavours while shopping at one of the 40 vendor booths set up. With everything from culinary creations to fashionable accessories, this event will ensure both your Christmas tree and your fridges are stocked and ready for the holiday season.
5. Summerhill Craft Show and Wine Sale
Who doesn’t love to shop? Whether you prefer shopping for handpicked homemade items or locally crafted wines, the Summerhill Craft Show and Wine Sale has something for everyone, even the kiddos.
