Wineries, cideries, breweries and distilleries all part of the #exploreKelowna Local Savings Pass

Great time for holiday cheer

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … to visit a Central Okanagan winery, cidery, brewery or distillery.

Not only will you get to enjoy some holiday cheer, but you will also have the opportunity to take advantage of the #exploreKelowna Local Savings Pass. That means you will be supporting local businesses, enjoying discounts and entering a contest for a chance to win big—all at the same time.

More than 60 Central Okanagan businesses are part of the #exploreKelowna Local Savings Pass, each of which has a special offer for those who sign up. It can be an expensive time of year, so getting a discount while you’re out celebrating the season with friends is not a bad deal at all.

The Okanagan is known for its wine, so it is no surprise to see so many wineries taking part in the Local Savings Pass program. You can stay in Kelowna, where Meadow Vista Honey Wines, Priest Creek Family Estate Winery, Sandhill Urban Winery, Sperling Vineyards, and The View Winery and Wards Cider are all ready to roll out the welcome mat for you.

If you’re in Lake Country, make sure to visit Ex Nihilo Vineyards, Gray Monk Winery, Intrigue Wines and Peak Cellars.

And everyone knows West Kelowna’s Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery is worth the trip at any time of year, but especially so when it is part of the Local Savings Pass.

If cider is more your thing, BC Tree Fruits Cider, Scenic Road Cider Co. and Soma Craft Cidery are ready to offer you their best creations, while Kelowna Beer Institute, Kettle River Brewing Co. and Vice & Virtue Brewing Co. are the perfect places for that beer you’ve been meaning all year long to have with your friends.

Finally, if hard liquor is more your cup of tea, Forbidden Spirits Distilling Co. and Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery are offering free tastings as part of their packages and will provide that special kind of warmth you seek during those cold winter nights.

If you want to make an afternoon of it—and really, who wouldn’t?—Kelowna Concierge, Tiki Time Tours, Vivid Tours, Just Grapes Wine Tours and Wicked Wine Tours are all part of the Local Savings Pass as well.

New offers and deals are added regularly, so be sure to review the pass often.

As an added incentive, Local Savings Pass holders who redeem five offers get into the monthly draw for $500 and also into the $2,500 grand prize draw.
