Tourism Kelowna’s sales team hosted a Kelowna Food Tour for a group of local residents to showcase what their colleagues could experience at a meeting or event in Kelowna. The tour was organized by Matt Wentzel from Experience Wine Tours and he designed a tour that included some spectacular eating and drinking for the evening. The tour not only showcased a taste of the delicious Farm to Table food scene here in Kelowna, but allowed our team to explain how Tourism Kelowna works to attract increased meetings and events to the city and how we can help make the planning easier. Over the course of four and a half hours we visited the new Beer Institute, Micro Bar Bites, RauDZ Regional Table, Pilgrim & Pearl, & Okanagan Spirits. The finale of the evening was at Sandhill Winery with Details Catering and Chef Mark Filatow offering a phenomenal sample three-course wine-paired menu. It was a great evening. We will be holding future food tours as we work to create many more local ambassadors for our city, and asking them to convince their corporate head offices to hold their next meeting or event in Kelowna.
