Even with the bountiful vineyards and wine offerings in the Okanagan Valley, the residents and visitors to this area could always use a little more. With the arrival of spring, there are a number of tantalizing wine events to keep everyone's palates satisfied. Whether you're staying at the Walnut Beach Resort for a business event or a leisurely weekend, make sure to fit in one activity centred around the valley's flavourful fruit libation.
In early May, the Harvest Golf Club will invite foodies and wine lovers alike to indulge in a three-course wine pairing dinner, led by executive chef Dan Werry. While looking out across Lake Okanagan and the sweeping vineyard hills, you can sip on award-winning SpierHead Winery varietals and celebrate the warm weather to come. This affordable, fine-dining event is a perfect way to unwind after a long day of meetings or simply to cap off a day of exploring the wilderness of the Okanagan.
If you're pleased with the meal offerings at the luxurious Osoyoos hotel at which you're staying, then a simple yet satisfying wine tasting may be more your style. Sleeping Giant Fruit Winery will present the Taste of Spring event May 1, featuring artwork by local artists and space to enjoy a picnic while sampling their delicious local wine products in the open air of Okanagan Valley .
