Kelowna, BC – It’s been called the must-attend event of the summer. The fourth annual Chef Meets BC Grape Okanagan returns to the breathtaking See Ya Later Ranch in Okanagan Falls on Saturday, June 27, 2020.

This year, The BC Wine Institute (BCWI) is thrilled to announce that The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society (OWFS) will present Chef Meets BC Grape Okanagan, BC’s largest outdoor wine and food festival. The 2020 event will see 40 wineries in attendance pouring over 200 BC wines.

“This event truly highlights the incredible Wines of British Columbia, and  we’re looking forward to supporting The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society as they lead the festival in its fourth year,” remarks Miles Prodan, President & CEO of the BC Wine Institute. “It’s an exceptional event that not only highlights the diversity of our regions, but also provides guests with the opportunity to experience all that the Okanagan has to offer as they mingle with local winemakers, enjoy exclusive dishes from top chefs and take in breathtaking views of BC wine country.” 

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. We’re excited to continue the traditions the BC Wine Institute has established, while creating a few of our own. Chef Meets BC Grape Okanagan is a great addition to our spring event programming, and we’re looking forward to an incredible event this year,” Elan Morris, General Manager, OWFS. 

Come and experience this prominent event all while taking in the spectacular vistas and scenery at See Ya Later Ranch.
