CSL had a delicious and innovative winemakers’ dinner at Tantalus Vineyards catered by Executive Chef Mark Filatow of Waterfront Wines, featuring a five course meal pairing BC VQA Wines from:

CedarCreek Estate Winery (Kelowna)

Clos du Soleil Winery (Similkameen Valley)

Laughing Stock Vineyards (Naramata Bench)

Little Farm Winery (Similkameen Valley)


A selection of wines at Cropped by Valley First

Cropped by Valley First:  BC’s Largest Wine Tasting (with over 80 wineries) and farmers market at Penticton Trade & Convention Center, is fully inspired by the terroir of the Okanagan and was truly a celebration of Canadiana.  Dairy Farmers of Canada was also on site, with seminars introducing dairy cheeses, while five musical acts at 4 different busker stations kept the lively vibe flowing.

One of the other events on the Taste of The Okanagan Fall Harvest Tour was the Alexis de Portneuf Presents: The Young Chefs wine tasting and culinary competition at Okanagan College Center for Learning, Kelowna. Twelve apprentice chefs from British Columbia competed to create unique small plates that contained at least 20% cheese from Alexis de Portneuf (Quebec). Each apprentice chef was paired with an Okanagan winery whose wines were carefully chosen to match each dish.

CSL visited dozens of wineries, met enthusiastic winemakers got awe inspired by the landscape and most of all, celebrated The Okanagan region, one of the Canada's (and the world) true gems.  Cheers!
