Lake Breeze is one of many local wineries teaming up with restaurants to offer food and wine pairings as part of this year's Wine and Dine Thompson-Okanagan event.

Annual Wine and Dine Thompson-Okanagan event kicks off

Event allows diners to check out more than 55 restaurant in the southern Interior with $15, $25 and $35 meals.

It’s time to wine and dine again in the Thompson-Okanagan — and to do it at a very affordable pice.

The 13th annual Wine and Dine event is underway with more than 55 restaurants from Kamloops to Osoyoos, including many in the Central Okanagan, participating.

Offering fixed three-course menus for $15, $25 and $25 each, the event gives diners an opportunity to check out a wide variety of restaurants and food styles. And it also lets them try B.C. VQA wines from a host of area wineries, specially paired with the dishes.

Wine and Dine Thompson-Okanagan, dubbed “Sip, savour and Save,” is put on by the Thompson-Okanagan branch of the B.C. Restaurant and Food Services Association. Similar events are held in Victoria and Vancouver.

BCRFA president Ian Tostenson, who was in Kelowna Thursday night for the opening reception to kick off this year’s Wine and Dine event, said its a great way to discover new restaurants, new dishes and new wines. He said the events both here and in Victoria have grown over the years and have proven very successful.

The number of participating restaurants is up this year, say organizers.
