Winter wine tasting popular: inside and outside

With the opening of the 16th annual Winter Okanagan Wine Festival next week, wine enthusiasts need to sign up soon to get tickets.

Drinking wine is a popular winter activity in B.C. judging by the success of the Okanagan Wine Festival Society’s 16th annual Winter Okanagan Wine Festival at Sun Peaks Resort.

Even though seven new unique events have been added to the roster this year, and it’s expanded from a weekend event to nine days in recent years, signature events sold out shortly after tickets went on sale this year, reports general manager Blair Baldwin.

“It’s a quintessential Canadian experience, where you can enjoy traditional winter recreation with sunny blue skies and dry, light powder, along with award-winning B.C. wines, cuisine and western hospitality,” he commented.

This year’s event runs from Jan. 11 through 19 and thousands of guests are expected to head to the resort to not only ski and snowboard, but also to enjoy local food and wines at a variety of indoor and outdoor events, tasting the wines of dozens of Okanagan wineries, and a total of 100 wines.

Sun Peaks Resort is located near Kamloops.
