Back To Our Roots Celebration for Canada’s 150th
Twenty – eight member wineries of the Naramata Bench Wineries Association are prepping for their annual “let our hair down, pop some corks and celebrate harvest event” on September 9. This is a wine and food event for wine enthusiasts to plan an Okanagan Fall weekend around. The event will be hosted this year D’Angelo Estate Winery (www.dangelowinery.com) from 6:30 to 9 PM.
Attendees will enjoy distinctive wines from 28 renowned wineries, local talented chefs’ cuisine and live music. This year we salute Canada’s 150th so we invite guests to kick up their heels in their most colourful gumboots to strut the “back to our roots” theme to celebrate Naramata wine culture and the coming of harvest. Tap into your creativity, if you dare, because prizes will be awarded for the most creative gumboots.
