Spring into winefest

If you've been looking for a reason to celebrate, look no further than the 24th Annual Spring Okanagan Wine Festival.

The annual festival returns May 2, and tickets to events are now on sale.

“Spring is a special time for all the member wineries and tourism partners of the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society,” said board chair Lindsay Kelm of Quails’ Gate Winery. ​“For us, this festival is the unofficial kickoff to the busy summer season. Not only does it give us the chance to celebrate the new spring releases, but also the opportunity to reconnect with fellow wineries and industry partners to toast the beginning of another successful year.”

More than 90 events are listed on the festival website, including annual favourites like the iconic WestJet Wine Tastings.

Signature events include the Iron Sommelier British Columbia wine and food pairing competition at Okanagan College in Kelowna, as well as the finale on Mother’s Day, a rosé brunch at Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos.

Dozens of wineries also put on events of their own, contributing to a wide range of things to do during the spring festival.
