Celebrating Garlic Festival 2020 and Hester Creek Estate Winery

Harvest in B.C. Wine Country

With our 50th grape harvest underway on our Golden Mile Bench vineyard we are thankful for what promises to be another excellent vintage, for the wonderful bounty of our valley farms, and for the support of our community. With that in mind, this year we are giving back with a “virtual” rendition of our annual Garlic Festival. Since 2012, Hester Creek has hosted the Garlic Festival which is open to all guests with admission by donation to the Oliver Elementary School Farm-to-School Lunch Program. Although we are not able to host the garlic purveyors nor the many guests on our property this year, we are still hoping to encourage donations for the school’s programs to support their students and families in need. 100% of donations will go directly to the school, and we ask that people visit www.hestercreek.com/garlicfestival2020 to donate. More information on the program is available on the video.

We are wrapping up this year’s Virtual Garlic Festival with live (not so virtual) music on our patio. Guests can join us at the winery October 2-4th from 1-4 pm daily. The music by Joshua Smith, Ari Neufeld and Aidan Mayes is complimentary, all seating is first come first served, guests will be socially distanced and will be served responsibly.

At Hester Creek Estate Winery, our roots run deep. As one of the oldest wine properties in the South Okanagan, we are graced with historic vineyards and a modern winery. A pioneer on the Golden Mile Bench, our vineyard was first planted with classic varietals in 1968.  Blending traditional, sustainable vineyard practices and innovative winemaking with a state of the art cellar, our wines reflect our celebrated terroir.  A destination winery, Hester Creek offers a gracious wine country welcome to guests, with premium old vines wines, and unique True Wine Experiences. Our Mediterranean influenced setting offers customized tastings, scenic patios, summer barbeques, live music, farm-to-table cooking classes, luxury Tuscany styled Villa, and Italian inspired dining at Terrafina.
