WINE & CRAFT TOUR | Winter Winery Event
Join the wineries of the Westside Wine Trail as they celebrate the holidays with their “Sip into the Season” event which has turned into a very popular winter wine event. This is our seventh year!
On Sunday, December 2nd each winery will host local artisans and crafters in their tasting rooms and cellars for a wine & craft tour.
This unique and one of a kind event will see visitors travel from winery to winery as they enjoy the works of the artisans and crafters at each location as well as award winning wines, gift packages, and holiday cheer.
This self-guided tour will have maps at each location. For added convenience, touring options are available through Roots & Vines Tours or Uncorked Okanagan. If you are looking for overnight accommodations, our tourism partners Casa Loma Lakeshore Resort, Holiday Inn West Kelowna and the Cove Lakeside Resort can help you out!
The “Sip into Season” event takes place December 2nd from noon – 5 pm at participating wineries of the Westside Wine Trail. Cost: complimentary
