Some of Canada’s most celebrated wines are made at a handful of small wineries in BC’s Okanagan Valley, several of which are family owned and operated. The wines can be hard to find at local liquor stores, but Vancouverites will have a chance to taste a selection of premium bottles at an event hosted by the Okanagan Falls Winery Association (OFWA) on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.

The following wineries will participate in this all-star event:
- Blasted Church Vineyards
- Bonamici Cellars
