Congrats to our Passport Contest Winners!

The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society is pleased to congratulate our 2013 Passport Contest Winners Bev and Tom Neifer of Calgary. Bev and Tom joined us during the 2013 Fall Okanagan Wine Festival and submitted a ballot with 12 stamps; that's 12 separate winery visits!

Bev and Tom have won a trip out to Kelowna (including airfare and accomodations) during the 2014 Spring Okanagan Wine Festival, as our guests for the opening night of the WestJet Wine Tastings on Friday May 2.

Bev and Tom will enjoy a pampering getaway at A Vista Villa which has been described by Spa Life Magazine as a "sanctuary in the heart of the sunny Okanagan."

We congratulate them again, and look forward to hosting them this spring.
