They say the way to someone's heart is through their stomach. Whether you are visiting Kelowna, or if you live in the area, taking your valentine to one of the cooking classes at the romantic Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna may be the perfect date night activity.  Besides… who wouldn’t want to drink wine in class?!? Sipping on Okanagan wine is a part of this lesson!

Kelowna is the place to be for New Years Eve! With plenty of events that cater to all ages and tastes, you're guaranteed to have a blast ringing in the the new year. 

Quails' Gate Table Setting
The tables at Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate Winery are ready for holiday cheer.

We love visiting the local wineries at this time of year because the busy season and harvest are both over, so the winemakers have more time to visit. This time of year presents the best opportunity for an intimate or technical wine experience where you can learn about the wines from the people who are making them.


The folks of the farm and the city come together in the Feast of Fields to celebrate local food and sustainable agriculture.


In our second segment on our wine trail series, we showcase the wineries on the Fab Five Wine Trail in East and South Kelowna.
