Come join us on Friday, October 7th for a casual, festival-style Harvest Celebration, featuring the Best of the Bus Tour!
If it’s warm enough, we’ll open the patio doors, and we can toast our beautiful waterfront view with some of the best of the Okanagan and Similkameen harvests. Even better – it’s a Friday night, so you don’t have to get up early the next day!
Your hard-working Executive Team tried lots and lots of wines on this month's bus tour – we might even have tried some of them more than once! (I know – it’s a terrible job.) We’ve chosen a great selection for you to enjoy, a fun mix of BC’s finest bubbles, whites, pinks, and reds – and here they are:
Orofino 2015 Moscato Frizzante
River Stone 2015 Pinot Gris
Quinta Ferreira 2014 Oaked Chardonnay
Clos du Soleil 2015 Rosé
Eau Vivre 2014 Pinot Noir
Stoneboat 2013 "Rock Opera" Pinotage
Church & State 2014 "Signature Series" Syrah
C.C. Jentsch 2013 Syrah
Hugging Tree 2014 "Telltale" red blend
Corcelettes 2014 "Menhir" red blend
Quinta Ferreira 2010 "Obra Prima" red blend
Forbidden Fruit 2014 "Caught" Apricot Mistelle fortified dessert wine
For food, we’ll be providing a selection of platters of cheeses and meats from Les Amis du Fromage – I’m hungry already!

I am very pleased to have been part of BCWAS almost right from the beginning – my first event was BCWAS’s third tasting, and I’ve been involved ever since! I am thrilled with all the support that we have from all of the wonderful owners and winemakers in our beautiful province, and of course, BCWAS couldn’t exist without you. Cheers, and see you at the next tasting!
