Launching this October, this boutique-sized, 5-day journey explores British Columbia’s wines, and the people and natural world that creates them. The trip includes plenty of time exploring little-known gems from the mediterranean-style western islands to award-winning reds from the semi-desert Okanagan and Similkameen regions.
A partnership between Oliver Osoyoos Winery Country, Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Conference Centre and Sun Peaks Resort, the festival brings together winemakers from BC’s most award-winning wine region to the mountains for a weekend of creative, fun and educational events, all paired with the legendary food and hospitality of the Sun Peaks Grand and Sun Peaks Resort culinary teams.
According to a recent survey conducted by KAYAK and OpenTable, Canadians are 38 per cent more likely than Americans to book a trip based on culinary offerings. The survey also revealed that when travelling, almost three quarters (74 per cent) of Canadians would prefer authentic local dining to something familiar.
