In addition to sampling from more than 200 BC wines, guests will enjoy dishes from 12 Okanagan Valley chefs who will showcase their unique culinary styles and create amazing small plates for guests to enjoy. 

The 2020 Chef Meets BC Grape Okanagan event will also feature interactive chef demos, entertainment, custom-made Icewine popsicles and an on-site pop-up wine store to ensure guests can take their new favourite wine home. 

“The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society is thrilled to take on this popular event.
