Spring is finally here, and that means the Okanagan wine season has officially begun. Because the Okanagan is the birthplace of all things wine in BC, you can put your trust in the locals to point you in the right direction. If you’ve got a room booked at a Kelowna hotel this spring, we’ve compiled some of our favourite Spring Okanagan Wine Festival activities located just steps away.
This favourite local event takes place every evening during the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival. Sip Into Sunset is a three-course meal that features organic local ingredients prepared by Summerhill Pyramid Winery’s Executive Chef and paired perfectly with local Kelowna wine by Summerhill’s very own winemaker.
Do a little touring around East Kelowna’s favourite wine trail. The Amuse Bouche event pairs delicious food samples with complimentary wine tastings at five local wineries not too far from hotels in Kelowna. The Fab Five include:
If your furry companion and Okanagan wine tours are among your favourite things, the Unleashed event is perfect for you. Tour some of Kelowna’s most notorious lakeshore wineries with your pup in tow while sipping on various varietals and sampling savoury canapés.
Embrace cultural diversity at the East Meets West event. Experience new flavour combinations while pairing East Indian flavour-bursting tapas with Kalala wines. This newly created event is sure to breathe new life into the Kelowna wine scene.
Stop in at the Indigenous World Winery to relish in the sights and smells of spring. Snack on some fabulous dishes inspired by edible flowers while sniffing and sampling aromatic wines. The Barrels and Bouquets event is a great way to embrace the springtime season.
Get a head start on all the weekend wine excitement by stepping over to SpierHead Winery for Foodie Fridays. Enjoy a complimentary glass of one of SpierHead’s delicious vintages while picking away at a snack (or dinner if you’re really hungry!) at the Crasian Food Truck.
If your love of wine extends past the walls of your home, you need to check-in at a Kelowna hotel and check out the Okanagan wine scene. For a look into everything wine in the Okanagan, read our previous mega-post: The Ultimate Guide to Okanagan Wine Tours.
