Okanagan Crush Pad have done it again!  Five great wines all priced under $25.

An incredible evening of tempting dishes featuring Japanese style, Mandarin, Taiwanese, Vietnamese and Indonesian flavour experiences all paired perfectly with a selection of haywire wines.

Starting with a little finger food vegetable samosas and chicken & lamb Satay served with Haywire the Bub 2012.
