Holidays at Naramata Inn ~ Expect lots to celebrate and delicious cheer this holiday season!

We’ve got lights, we’ve got festive menus and we’ve got some great holiday gifting at Naramata Inn this holiday season.

Heralding the start of the Holiday season, Naramata Inn has just flipped the switch on more than 25,000 thousand twinkling lights and decorations illuminating the historic Inn and grounds, with the hope of bringing light and joy to the entire community this year.

The celebratory spirit continues inside the Inn for Covid-safe celebrations, with social distancing, small group sizes, and full compliance with current provincial health orders. Chef Ned Bell’s holiday menus are available for both lunch and dinner from December 1 to January 1. These three-course prix fixe menus offer some delicious choices for each course, along with optional add-ons and thoughtful wine pairings from Emily Walker. Using the best regional ingredients, supporting local farmers, artisans and producers.

Christmas shopping made easy for lovers of local food and wine. Naramata Inn is offering a variety of holiday gift boxes this season – from innovative culinary-focused gift boxes, to curated wine collections that show off the best of the Okanagan Valley. These will be available for purchase online next week.

We invite everyone to stop by and enjoy the lights at the Inn this Holiday season. If you’re coming into the village to join us, consider supporting other small businesses in our community by doing some early holiday shopping! A list of local stores, galleries, and boutiques that are open during the run-up to Christmas will soon be available at DiscoverNaramata.com, and visit NaramataBench.com for winery and tasting room hours.

HOLIDAY GIFTS THAT ARE OUT OF THE BOX

Naramata Inn offers gift ideas for the luckiest on your “naughty-or-nice” list

Not everyone will be able to make it to Naramata Inn this holiday season, but we’ve put together special gift boxes that bring the Inn experience to those on your gift list. From innovative culinary-focused gift boxes, to curated wine collections that show off the best of the Okanagan Valley, we have plenty of ideas for even the toughest to buy for. Or pay it forward with a gift card that your loved ones can use towards their own “Inn Real Life” Naramata experience next year. Even better: spend over $500 in total on gift cards in the one transaction, and we’ll give you your own bonus gift card worth 10% of your total!

To learn more or to purchase, please contact us at olivia@nullnaramatainn.com. And stay tuned for our new online store launching at the end of November!

Note: Gift cards and gift boxes without wine are able to be shipped anywhere in Canada. However, because of shipping and handling restrictions, gift boxes containing wine are for BC only. Wine-only sets and boxes are for pick up only and come with Naramata’s “really good” sourdough bread and option for our house brie.

About Naramata Inn:

Constructed 112 years ago by the town’s founder, J.M. Robinson, Naramata Inn would welcome some of the Okanagan’s very first tourists and go on to weave a colourful thread throughout Naramata’s history. Naramata Inn is still making headlines as the best way to enjoy the full bounty of the Okanagan Valley. The Inn delivers a proudly “Naramatian” experience, from the best local growers and artisans in Naramata and the Valley, through to showcasing the true depth and breadth of award-winning wines produced by British Columbia’s winemakers.
