The fabululous Garagiste Festival will be held in Kelowna this year at the beautiful Sperling Vineyards. Join over 25 small wineries and meet the owners/farmers/winemakers of these artisan wines. Food by RauDZ available for purchase and a pop-up wine store means you can take your favourites home with you.
What is a garagiste? (gar-ah-jeest). It started out in France (of course) where it was a derogatory phrase for those avant garde and crazy mavericks making wine in their garage and outside the highly regulated system. Gradually and grudgingly came the acknowledgement that something really interesting was happening with these small case lot artisan wines, and a movement was born.
We bring together the small guys. Wines produced from 100% Canadian grapes and under 2000 cases total production annually.
