The annual Spring Okanagan Wine Festival is rapidly approaching, and people from all over British Columbia are making last-minute reservations at Osoyoos hotels like the Walnut Beach Resort. Bringing together dozens of wine varietals from the valley and beyond, this event is one you won't want to miss.
Whether you're an aspiring winemaker, curious about the process or just love tasting different kinds, the spring celebration invites all enthusiasts to come together and bond over their shared love of the libation. The event takes place from May 2 to 12, featuring various events each day. To kick it off, the Best of Varietal Wine Awards will recognise the highest-awarded types, and guests will be the first to sample the winners before they're released to the public.
Near the end of the festival, another popular event among couples will occur May 11. Called the Blind Wine and Cheese Soiree, the intimate evening will give guests the chance to challenge their senses and discern different flavours while being blindfolded.
The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society puts on exciting events year-round, so if you plan on visiting the luxurious Osoyoos hotel in the summer or fall, you'll be sure to find festivities that appeal to you.
