The Finish

by Sarah27. January 2012 21:43

Wine has been poured, tasted and savored as another successful Winter Okanagan Wine Festival came to an end. The festival ran for just over a week and it was not only for the ‘wine lovers’ there were a mixture of events available catering for everyone. People came from all over the world to sample the regions wine varietals and culinary delights as well as get in a few turns on the slopes!

Many of the events had been sold out weeks in advance, which sum up just how popular this festival is. Among the early sellouts were the M Room Fondue, Brunch with Bubbles, Port & Cheese: After the Après Social, Medal Winners Tasting, All the Grapes You've Wanted To Try But Haven't Yet and the star of the show The Sun Peaks Progressive Tasting with the 650 tickets being snapped up in record time. This could give you an idea for next year's festival as to which events you should book well in advance for.

During the heart of the festival the temperatures dropped to -30°C but it didn't stop anyone from enjoying the wonderful evenings of events they attended. The Sun Peaks Bartender Mixology Face-Off was a lot of fun and there were some interesting concoctions as each and every creation had to include a British Columbian wine as an ingredient. It was a great way to introduce wine to those who prefer their bar drinks. Damon from Globe Cafe & Tapas took out the top mixologist with his creation titled: “Cleopatra's Symphony”.

It was a great week with lots of delicious food, fantastic wine and great people! We look forward to its return next year, as we will be celebrating its 15th year running!

Until next year,
