Foodie event brings crowds

The 10th Annual Big Reds Wine Festival at Big White Ski Resort this weekend proved to be a hit breaking previous attendance records.

The two night event saw more than 600 guests flow through the Village Centre Mall sampling the handcrafted wines making it the most attended Big Reds to date.

The event connects consumers with local wineries in an intimate environment while enjoying great snow and delicious food.

“The popularity of Big Reds mirrors the growth of the wine industry in B.C.,” said Trevor Hanna, vice president of hospitality at Big White Ski Resort. “When we first started Big Reds there was less than 150 wineries in B.C. and now there is well over 300.”

“Without the continued support from our family of generous winery and restaurant partners, this event would not have made it through 10 wonderful years.”

The annual event featured 136 wines from 31 different Okanagan wineries and food from eight local restaurants, which is the most vendors in the event’s history.

Guests were asked to choose their favourite winery and restaurant during both nights of the event and the businesses winning over the attendees were Globe Café and Tapas Bar and The View Winery.
