A complimentary wine event called Saturday Tastings is being launched by the B.C. Wine Museum’s VQA wine shop.

A different winery will be featured each week from 2 to 4 p.m. at the historic Laurel Packinghouse on Ellis Street, which will allow consumers to ask questions about the wines as well as taste them. The feature winery Saturday, Feb. 12, will be Desert Hill Estate Winery, while Volcanic Hills will be there Feb. 19 and Quinta Ferreira Feb. 26. Proceeds from wine sales at the shop go to support programs of the Kelowna Museums. It’s open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday/holidays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the newly-restored Laurel.
