Big Reds at Big White- Elevation Grand Tasting

SOLD OUT!! Still a few ticket remain for Friday's Magic of Meritage event.

Join us in raising a toast to the weekend of December 9th, 2023, as we commemorate our 60th season.

Don't miss our spectacular Big Reds at Big White Winter Wine Festival weekend. Once again, we are thrilled to partner with the Okanagan Wine Festival and its partner wineries to showcase a diverse array of varietal expressions through the eyes of talented winemakers.

This weekend seamlessly blends the thrill of skiing and snowboarding with the best in local Okanagan wines. For more than a dozen years, Big Reds has been a jewel in the crown of winter wine experiences. We've given this weekend a fresh and exciting transformation with a nod to our 60th anniversary celebrations where you get to intimately connect with winery principals in the relaxed atmosphere of Happy Valley Day Lodge at the Elevation Grand Tasting and a casual and intimate Friday night Magic of Meritage Tasting.

Additionally, look for other enticing wine focused events throughout the village at local restaurants. Be sure to book your accommodation early and don't miss out on this unforgettable weekend.
