Join KCIC and Kelowna Museums for a celebration of Italian Wine and Food on October 25th at the Historic Laurel Packinghouse. With our special presenters: John Schreiner, Luke Whittall, Simone Castellarin and Donna Senese. We're proud to feature these amazing Okanagan wineries - Blasted Church Vineyards - Bonamici Cellars - LaStella Winery - Moon Curser Vineyards - Stag's Hollow Winery - Sandhill Wines - D'Angelo Winery & Guest House - High Note Estate Winery.

The Kelowna Canadian Italian Club and the Okanagan Wine and Orchard Museum are exploring the influences of Italy on the Okanagan Wine Industry in a very special event. Those influences stretch back a century, to the introduction of wine grapes to the Okanagan and the beginnings of a fledgling industry.  
We look back to those beginnings, but then fast forward to the present, to feature Italian styled wines from throughout the valley made from time-honoured varietals. Our guest panel: John Schreiner, Luke WhittallSimone Castellerin and Donna Senese  - will sample this exciting collection of wines curated by Luke Whittall and share their thoughts with attendees. Then (after a short break) our guests are welcome to sample for themselves. There will be tasting stations set up around the Laurel and Chef Ricardo Scebba has prepared a paired tasting menu of appetizers at each station. 

Your admission includes the appetizers and 10 tastings. Additional tasting tickets will be available to purchase.
