West Kelowna’s Grizzli Winery aims to help people reconnect with community

The Summer Collectif Series begins July 25

West Kelowna’s Grizzli Winery is on the brink of launching its new summer collective series to help people reconnect with themselves and their community amid COVID-19.

The series is made up of various events and workshops lead by Okanagan influencers designed to take a few hours out of the day to reconnect with the community and to deepen skill sets.

Titled the Collectif, the series was borne out of Grizzli Winery’s desire to help people continuously grow and challenge themselves, especially during difficult times amid COVID-19.

Grizzli Winery has teamed up with some local mentors to deliver workshops such as yoga, mindfulness, ceramics, zumba, health and nutrition, and candle-making. The idea is to help bring some balance back in everyone’s lives, to take a breath, drink a glass of wine, and rediscover what the beautiful Okanagan has to offer.
