Valley First Grand Finale Consumer Tastings



The big shout out to the fall grape harvest and a tradition at the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival. If you have ever wanted to go on a Valley wide wine tour but didn't have enough time, this is your opportunity! Over 80 wineries will be ready to tantalize you with a wide spectrum of British Columbia wines. Enjoy live entertainment, artisan breads, gourmet cheeses and samples from Nesters Market and purchase your favourites at the on-site wine store presented by BC Liquor Stores. The fun doesn't stop there!  New this year - The Pinot Bar! Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc are well known varietals in our province and this year outside the main tasting room we will be showcasing various styles of these three great varietals produced in the Okanagan.  Wine Experts will be on hand for you to sample these wines and explain their characteristics.  The Sensory Smell Test - in concert with our Pinot Bar, consumers will get to try their hand at sensory evaluation to guess the aromas associated with each pinot. 

Also included in the price of your admission are two free interactive seminars.  Learn about British Columbia wines in "Wine 101" presented by an Okanagan winemaker - everything you wanted to know  about wine, but didn't think to ask.  Or join Dairy Farmers of Canada for an "Introduction to Canadian Cheese."  Both seminars are offered during the evening on a first come first serve basis.  This is a Get Home Safe event, sponsored by BC Liquor Stores and Valley First Insurance.

Tickets available online or by calling 877-763-2849 - Price $65.00/night (all incl) or $110.00 (all incl) for both nights.
