    “The Festivals are a testament to the phenomenal regional wine culture in the province, which has now surpassed $1 billion in wine sales annually, with BC wine comprising the largest market share of any region’s wines sold in the province,” said Blair Baldwin, General Manager, The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society. “With 50 British Columbia wineries and a number of unique Canadiana inspired wine and culinary events like Coureur Des Bois Repas, which celebrates the famous ‘runners of the woods’ and the superb Comforts of Grilled Cheese and Wine, we offer an inspired pairing of the best of British Columbia for those that enjoy fine wine, skiing, food and riding in a spectacular mountainside setting.”

Each event has been added in direct response to feedback received from event attendees and/or an emerging trend in the market.
