Episode 17 Winterfest at the District Wine Village

There are a lot of people in this episode! It was a beautiful day at the District Wine Village in Oliver as the Okanagan Wine Festival Society launched a new event – Winterfest. Thank you to Kimberley Hundertmark for inviting me to to this great event. 

In this episode, you will hear from:

  • Heather Courtney from General Manager of O’Rourke Peak Cellars and Chair of the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society 
  • Barbara Hall at Upper Case Winery
  • Suk and Neetu from Eau Vivre (pictured above)
  • Michal Mosny from Winemakers Cut
  • Daphne Scromeda from JoiRyde Winery
  • Kayla Bourdignon from UncorkBC and the creator of the annual BC Wine Passport
  • We’ll also check in on Nk’Mip Cellars and a new winery at the Wine Village – Foolish Wines.

Singer Mandy Cole also makes an appearance from the stage at the centre of the village.   

There were so many wineries I couldn’t get too or that didn’t have time for interviews because they were so busy. Also, unfortunately the audio from Valley Commons was unusable due to technical difficulties. I will return for more soon.
