Friday September 29 - Sunday October 1

More than a simple wine tasting -- head up to the Okanogan to stomp grapes, taste wine, and learn about pairing food and wine. 

Note: Prices include 2 nights’ group/shared Airbnb accommodations plus tickets to all events. Prices do not include food outside of events or any transportation costs to/from or in/around Kelowna. Paul is happy to co-ordinate sharedgas car pools for the week-end.

Here’s what’s included:

Saturday:
After a leisurely, relaxed morning, we will ‘kick-off’ our Kelowna Krush tour in a custom-made Grape Stomping barrel at the House of Rose Winery! After getting our feet wet, we’ll wing our way over to the Meadow Vista Honey Winery from where Queen Bee Judie Barta will share tips on how to pair the world's oldest fermented beverage with fresh, local cuisine.

Afterwards, we’ll head back to the hive, change and get ready to party! There won’t be a sour grape at one of the most popular wine events across Canada!! WestJet Wine Tastings combines sass, savour and social, allowing guests to sample over 200 wines from across British Columbia, with wineries grouped according to region. We will tour a swath of Okanagan Wine Country without having to drive! Featuring a renowned on-site deli from Nesters Market, local live music and a complementary safe ride home to our Airbnb, it will be one of the best wine socials ever! This event gets sold out a month in advance every year, so please take note: our sign-up deadline is August 16th…

Sunday:
After another lazy sleep-in morning at our wine-country home, we will head to Mission Hill Family Estate for a Reserve Tour. Stroll across the winery grounds as we enjoy winery’s dramatic architecture and marvel at sweeping, magnificent lake & mountain views. Dive into a spectacular underground barrel cellar to learn first-hand about the intricate process of fermenting and aging at BC’s most inspirational winery! Our tour culminates with a tutored tasting of two award-winning wines in a private tasting salon.

Last but not least, we will conclude our two-day Kelowna Krush with another tasting down the street at Quail’s Gate Estate Winery, before scooting home.

With the exception of a Saturday night shared taxi to the WestJet wine tastings and complementary ride home to our Airbnb, please note that our group will agree upon a strategy to ensure everyone drinks responsibly, even if it means drawing driver straws…
